The English Premier League fixtures paused this weekend as the FA Cup last 16 took to the field. Who prevailed and who failed?

Chelsea bag four

  • Willian dispatched two inch-perfect finishes as Chelsea eased past Hull 4-0 and into the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Vardy spoiled the party for Sheffield

  • Jamie Vardy scored the only goal in Leicester defeating Sheffield United 1-0 win to knock United out of the FA Cup.

Business as usual for Manchester United

  • Manchester United overcame the controversial VAR intervention and reached the FA Cup quarter-finals thanks to Lukaku's brace with a 2-0 win at Huddersfield.

Saints march on as West Brom bow out

  • Southampton defeated West Brom to progress into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a confidence-boosting 2-1 victory at The Hawthorns.

Cruise control for Brighton and Hove Albion

  • Brighton reached the last eight of the FA Cup for the first time in 32 years as they cruised to a comfortable 3-1 win over League two side, Coventry.

Stale mate in Sheffield

  • Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea will replay their fixture after their tie ended goalless at Hillsborough in the early kick-off.

Tottenham tank

  • Maybe not exactly tanked, but Tottenham drew 2-2 with League One team, Rochdale - a match everyone expected them to win. 

Wigan 'wows' City (and everyone else)

  • With Fabian Delph sent-off deep into extra time in the first half, Wigan sprung a surprise result with a 1-0 win thanks to a 79th minute goal from Will Grigg. 

What's ahead for the quarter-finals?

The draw took place at 8pm on Saturday ahead of some of the results, most notably Tuesday morning's match between Wigan and Manchester City.  The three big teams - Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham - who remain have all managed to avoid each other.

Manchester United will play host Brighton and Hove Albion, in a repeat of the 1983 final.

The winner of the Tottenham v Rochdale replay will meet Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea.

Southampton travel to Wigan, while Leicester and Chelsea meet in another all Premier League fixture.

The quarter-finals take place from 16-19 March and each winning club will receive £360,000 (approximately $635,000) from The FA before heading to the semi-finals.

  1. Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City v Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur
  2. Manchester United v Brighton and Hove Albion
  3. Leicester City v Chelsea
  4. Wigan Athletic v Southampton
