    Moon: Nothing more thrilling than Tony Parks at an incredible European final at White Hart Lane, 1984 ... unreal scenes !!

    Gumbo74: FA Cup. 3rd round replay. Adrian steps up to make it 9-8 against EFC. I think there had been a few long shoot-outs that year. Glad we got rid of Adrian, doubt he'll go on to anything better.

  5. Tough week for Arsenal

    Liverpool v Arsenal (19:30 GMT)

    Arsenal

    A tough week for Arsenal may get even tougher as they travel to Premier Language leaders Liverpool.

    Gunners captain Granit Xhaka is embroiled in a row with fans and is yet to comment after he swore at his own supporters and ripped off his shirt as he left the pitch, following Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

    Can Arsenal sort out their indifferent form and come away with a morale-booting win at Anfield tonight?

    Answers on a postcard, please.

  6. 'Fred & Andreas Pereira can fill void left by Paul Pogba' - Solskjaer

    Chelsea v Man Utd (20:05 GMT)

    Manchester United

    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Fred and Andreas Pereira to fill the midfield void created by Paul Pogba's injury.

    Pogba has not played since 30 September and is likely to be out until December because of an ankle problem.

    "Fred and Andreas - they are going to be important for us," said Solskjaer in the build-up to his side's Carabao Cup game against Chelsea on Wednesday.

    "Fred will probably take Paul's position for a while now."

    Solskjaer added: "That's been brilliant for us, but Andreas has grown in the last few games."

  10. 'I was always going to play the young players' - Lampard

    Chelsea v Man Utd (20:05 GMT)

    Chelsea

    Frank Lampard says he would always have given his young Chelsea players a chance this season - even if the club didn't have a transfer ban.

    Under Lampard striker Tammy Abraham, midfielder Mason Mount and defender Fikayo Tomori have become regulars.

    "I set out this season to see what these young boys could do," he said.

    "If I didn't have a transfer ban and had opportunities to bring players in during the summer, I still would have trusted the young boys."

  11. Kid v kids

    Chelsea v Man Utd (20:05 GMT)

    Both Premier League sides are expected to play their young guns in the cup tonight.

    Which could mean the line-ups may not look too dissimilar to the ones playing week in, week out.

    With both Chelsea and United keen to bed their academy players this season, with mixed results.

    It means this tie is rather intriguing, especially after the Reds thrashed Chelsea on the opening day of the Premier League season.

    Game on!

    Oxford 1-1 Sunderland (Oxford win 4-2 on pens)

    Sunderland

    Quote Message: "The referee has to take a long hard look at himself for two penalties tonight. There was a clear penalty in the first half when Joel Lynch was pole-axed in the box. The second one - I can't see how it has not been given. Luke O'Nien was just about to pull the trigger and score or attempt to score - there's not a great deal of contact, but it's enough to bring him down and the referee was only 10 yards away. Everybody in the ground saw that was a penalty, so it's hugely frustrating. The game should have been out of sight anyway. Those incidents should be irrelevant." from Phil Parkinson Sunderland manager

    Oxford 1-1 Sunderland (Oxford win 4-2 on pens)

    Quote Message: "It's out of your control when it goes to a penalty shootout. "It's more about the players and fans that turned out. You never plan to win that way but if you're going to win and go to the quarter-finals of a competition like this that's the best way to do it. We were poor today. That's probably the worst we've played. But what a tremendous testament to League One." from Karl Robinson Oxford United manager
