Lincoln City, Burnley, Arsenal, FA Cup, quarterfinals

An all-Premier League blockbuster, a battle between two Spanish managers, a London derby and a clash of a Premier League heavyweight vs the fairytale non-league team – the FA Cup quarterfinal matches of 2017 have it all.

Sutton United vs Arsenal highlights

With the final now almost in sight and the teams just a win away from Wembley, it really is all to play for, for the remaining eight teams of the FA Cup this year.

Boro are in big trouble in the Premier League, with their lack of goals dropping them down to the bottom three. That has put the manager Aitor Karanka under big pressure, and the best way to ease it will be by trumping Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

City blew a chance to go second in the Premier League by drawing a blank against Stoke on Wednesday, but Guardiola will expect his players to find peak goalscoring form against this goal-shy Middlebrough side.

Arsenal vs Lincoln City at the Emirates Stadium. Kickoff time: 5.30pm GMT, 11pm IST:

Arsene Wenger's side will face a non-league team for the second consecutive round and having found Sutton United to be quite difficult opponents, Arsenal will expect nothing less from Lincoln, who entered the quarterfinals with a fantastic win over Premier League side Burnley.

With the pressure that Arsenal are in at the moment, anything but a win will be considered a disaster. Lincoln will know the Gunners are vulnerable, and with absolutely nothing to lose and history to make, there is nothing stopping them from having a right old go in front of a 60,000-strong crowd.

Mauricio Pochettino, Dele Alli, Tottenham, Millwall, FA Cup

Sunday, March 12:

Tottenham vs Millwall at White Hart Lane. Kickoff time: 2pm GMT, 7.30pm IST:

With a chance of winning a European title gone and the Premier League crown set to go to a different London club, Spurs only have the FA Cup remaining this season in their quest to win a long-awaited trophy. Mauricio Pochettino might be getting this Tottenham side to play some wonderful football, but he needs something more tangible to go with it.

Millwall have been one of the giant-killers of this year's FA Cup, and after knocking out Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester City en route to the quarterfinals, the League One side will fancy another Premier League scalp.

Jose Mourinho, Manchester United, Chelsea, FA Cup, last eight

Monday, March 13:

Chelsea vs Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. Kickoff time: 7.45pm GMT, 1.15am IST (Tuesday):

The headline-grabbing game of the quarterfinals. Jose Mourinho makes a second return as Manchester United manager to his former club and boy will he hope it turns out to be a lot better than the first one.

Manchester United are a much better team from the one that got thumped 4-0 in October, so this is likely to be a different game. Chelsea, though, are the form team in England, on their way to a comfortable Premier League title, and with this match being at home, they will start as the favourites.
