The FA Cup is one of the world’s most historic, oldest, and most celebrated soccer tournaments. Eight teams now remain in the competition as we reach the quarterfinals. A competition that is open to 92 clubs from the Premier League, EFL Championship, EFL League One, and EFL League Two is getting closer to the end. The eight teams left in the competition are Manchester United, Manchester City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Fulham, Grimsby Town, Blackburn Rovers, and Sheffield United. Let’s see how these teams match up for the quarter-finals.

Manchester City Vs Burnley

Vincent Kompany will return to familiar ground in the Etihad stadium when Burnley plays his former club Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s time in Manchester City seems to have influenced Kompany a lot, and it is evident in the managerial prowess of the Belgian as shown by being the head coach of Burnley.

  • Burnley will return to the Premier League next season as they are top of the table by a landslide in the Championship under the tutorship of Kompany, who is only in his first season in charge. Kompany seeing similar success in the FA Cup will simply elevate his status as a top-tier coach.
  • On the other hand, Manchester City’s dreams of a treble this season are still valid. They are five points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, they have booked a spot in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals and are also in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Guardiola’s side last won the FA Cup in the 2018/19 season.

Manchester United Vs Fulham

Manchester United have already won the Carabao Cup this season, and they remain hungry for another title. Their recent performances have eliminated them from being title contenders in the EPL. On the other hand, Fulham is having a bad run of form as well, they are eighth in the Premier League, and any further loss could see them losing their spot in the top ten. This will be an exciting matchup.

  • Manchester United has been solid in the Europa League, and they are also in the top-four race in the Premier League. Erik Ten Hag has already won his first trophy as United manager in his first year in charge, and his team seems hungry for more. However, they will have to get past Fulham first.
  • Fulham’s Marco Silva will fancy a cup this season as his side has been impressive in the FA Cup; they looked solid in games where you expect them to falter, so they might just be up to something. As long as they have their target man Mitrovic firing on all cylinders, they can’t be counted out.

Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Grimsby Town

This will be a fun game to watch. Brighton has been renowned for the exciting football they play, and even a change in the head coach at the start of the season did not distort their momentum. Roberto De Zerbi has done well in charge as the team only keeps getting better. Grimsby Town is the only team from League Two left in the competition. They have indeed exceeded expectations getting to this stage of the tournament.

  • Brighton has been impressive in the Premier League this season. They are currently seventh in the Premier League, but if they can pick up maximum points from their outstanding matches, they could be in the top-four race. Brighton has the most favorable matchups in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
  • Grimsby Town being fifteenth in League Two casts a massive shadow over them in making it to the FA Cup quarter-finals. For a club struggling in League Two, they have outdone themselves by making it this far in this competition. They remain the underdog in this game.

Sheffield United Vs Blackburn Rovers

This will be two Championship teams going at each other. Sheffield United is third in the Championship, while Blackburn Rovers are sixth. These teams were jointly responsible for eliminating two Premier League sides from the tournament. Unfortunately, one of these teams must be eliminated at this competition stage. This is making a very competitive game.

  • Sheffield United has shown their will and determination in the FA Cup. Eliminating Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the competition is not an easy feat which is why they are another massive underdog.
  • Blackburn has shown they can not be written off in this competition, as they were responsible for eliminating Premier League side Leicester City in the fifth round. They will give Sheffield a run for its money.
