Tuesday 9 February

Burnley 0-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth booked a spot in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for only the second time in their history as Sam Surridge’s tap-in and a Junior Stanislas penalty secured a 2-0 win at a much-changed Burnley.

Surridge had a simple finish midway through the first half before he was upended late on, with Stanislas converting the resulting spot-kick, as the Cherries reached the sixth round for the first time since the 1956-57 campaign.

Jay Rodriguez spurned a gilt-edged chance to level in the second half, missing the target from six yards, on a bitterly cold night at Turf Moor, where Burnley almost blundered by initially putting Erik Pieters in their starting line-up before he was withdrawn after they were apparently notified of his suspension for this game.

Pieters’ withdrawal meant there were eight changes to the side that drew against Brighton in the Premier League, and they were outshone by a Bournemouth outfit who have now won both games under caretaker manager Jonathan Woodgate.

There was no Jack Wilshere for the Sky Bet Championship side but they still had enough quality to see off Burnley, whose wait for a last-eight appearance in this competition stands at 18 years.

Man United 1-0 West Ham (AET)

Scott McTominay fired Manchester United into the FA Cup quarter-finals as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men edged past West Ham in extra time.

The Red Devils reached the final four last season – one of four successive semi-final cup competition exits – and progressed from a tough fifth-round clash on Tuesday evening.

Ex-United boss David Moyes’ West Ham side made life difficult on a bitterly cold night at Old Trafford, where substitute McTominay struck home Marcus Rashford’s lovely 97th-minute lay-off to seal a 1-0 extra-time win.

Solskjaer will be relieved his team made it through to the last eight on a night in which Lukasz Fabianski tipped a deflected Victor Lindelof header onto the post in a first half that they edged.

West Ham had already been hit by an injury to Angelo Ogbonna at that point and his replacement Issa Diop became the first concussion substitute in English football when withdrawn at half-time.

Andriy Yarmolenko was then forced off in a goalless second half as the match went to extra time, with McTominay firing in his seventh goal of the season to seal progress.

Swansea 1-3 Man City

Watch replay

In-form Manchester City made light work of a youthful Swansea side in the early kick-off on Wendesday evening.

The visitors dominated the first half without creating too many clear-cut chances and looked to be heading into the interval level until Kyle Walker's freak goal found the back of the net.

The Sheffield-born star sent a low cross into the box that evaded everyone - including stopper Freddie Woodman - to dribble into the bottom corner.

After the break, Raheem Sterling struck almost immediately, punishing a lapse in concentration to put City in cruise control

And when Gabriel Jesus found the net shortly after, City's place in the next round was all but assured.

A late consolation from Morgan Whittaker robbed City of yet another clean sheet but it will do the hosts a world of good as they switch their focus back to the Championship promotion race.

Leicester 1-0 Brighton

Watch replay

Kelechi Iheanacho's last-gasp header sent Leicester through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup as they defeated Brighton in dramatic fashion at the King Power Stadium.

The nature of the goal was completely at odds with a game that produced little for spectators to sink their teeth into.

Neither side registered a shot on target in the opening 45 and the game looked destined to be headed for extra-time after an equally drab second half until Iheanacho's intervention.

Sheffield United 1-0 Bristol City

Billy Sharp's second-half penalty was the difference between these two sides in a hard-fought contest at Bramall Lane as Sheffield United advanced to the quarter-final at 10-man Bristol City's expense.

Robins defender Alfie Mawson was adjudged to have prevented David McGoldrick's goalbound shot with his hand, recieving his marching order just after the hour mark.

Blades talisman Sharp duly stepped up to score the game-winning goal from the spot to secure a result the home side will feel like they deserved on the balance of the game.

Everton 5-4 Tottenham (AET)

Watch replay

Everton triumphed in a remarkable FA Cup fifth round encounter that saw the sides share nine goals on a freezing night at Goodison Park.

Spurs took the lead after barely three minutes when Davinson Sanchez leapt highest to head home from a corner.

But Everton hit back with a quickfire double through the in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin and his strike partner Richarlison.

The Toffees were then awarded a fortuitous penalty after Pierre-Emile Hojberg accidentally tripped Richarlison with Gylfi Sigurdsson making no mistake from the resulting spot-kick.

But in the dying moments of the first half, Erik Lamela ensured Jose Mourinho would have something to cling onto as he made it 3-2 with a neat finish to round off an incisive Spurs move.

The second half brought more of the same chaos as Sanchez scored his second from another set piece to level the scores for Spurs before Richarlison bagged his second with a cracking left-footed drive across Loris.

Everton looked as though they might hang on for a dramatic victory until Harry Kane - who else? - pounced on a delicious cross from Heung-min Son - who else? - to send the game to extra-time.

The home side seized the lead for a third time in the match in the 96th minute as Sigurdsson's teasing through ball was lashed home by Bernard.

Thursday 11 February

Wolves 0-2 Southampton

Watch replay

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl targeted ending Southampton’s 45-year FA Cup drought after they reached the quarter-finals.

Danny Ings and Stuart Armstrong struck in the second half as the Saints beat Wolves 2-0 to earn a last eight tie at Bournemouth.

The visitors were deserved winners at Molineux as they look to lift the trophy for the first time since 1976.

It was also the Saints’ first clean sheet in five games – having conceded 16 goals in their previous four outings, including last week’s 9-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Barnsley v Chelsea, 8pm on BBC One via BT TV

The eighth and final tie of the round comes from Oakwell as Chelsea take on lower league opposition for the third time in three FA Cup ties.

The Blues thrashed Morecambe 4-0 and defeated Luton Town 3-1 in what proved to be Frank Lampard’s final match in charge of the club.

Successor Thomas Tuchel has hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge and after drawing his opening match against Wolves, has reeled off three straight wins.

Eight-time winners Chelsea now take on a Barnsley side who themselves have tasted FA Cup glory way back in 1912. The Tykes negotiated clashes with Tranmere and Norwich City but have not reached this stage of the competition since 2012/13.

Led by Frenchman Valerien Ismael, the Championship side will look to recapture 2008’s shock quarter-final defeat of Thursday’s opponents when they ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Kayode Odejayi’s second-half strike.

Chelsea meanwhile will be hoping for a similar outcome to the most recent meeting between these two in September of 2020 – a 6-0 destruction of Barnsley at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup.
