Preview – Match of the Day: FA Cup Highlights

FA Cup

Gabby Logan presents all of the best bits from this weekend’s FA Cup 5th Round games.

Saturday’s action saw the competition’s remaining Premier League teams come out trumps against their lower-league opposition. QPR kicked-off proceedings a night earlier on Friday at Loftus Road as they hosted Watford – the visitors would go on to win the game thanks to a decisive strike from Etienne Capoue.

In Saturday’s afternoon games, Brighton bested a spirited Derby County team in a tense affair while Championship side Millwall came up against League One’s AFC Wimbledon. Finally, Premier League champions Manchester City put Newport County to the sword late on after a hard-fought defensive display from the home team.

Today sees Nuno Espirito Santo’s impressive Wolves team face-off against Bristol City while, later in the afternoon, Doncaster Rovers host Crystal Palace and Swansea come up against Brentford. Wrapping up this year’s 5th Round action, it’s a clash of the titans as Chelsea host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.

Preview – Match of the Day: FA Cup Highlights – Sunday 10:30pm on BBC One.
