2021 FA Cup: quarter finals

ESPN screens the FA Cup quarter finals action live this weekend.

ESPN screens the Quarter Finals of the 2021 FA Cup this weekend, with just eight teams remaining in the hunt.

The action begins live on Saturday as AFC Bournemouth clash with Southampton at 11.10pm AEDT on ESPN.

AFC Bournemouth are the only non-Premier League side left in the competition and will be hoping newly appointed manager Jonathan Woodgate can steer them into the final four.

Sunday March 21 then sees a mouthwatering matchup as Everton welcome Manchester City to Goodison Park at 4.25am AEDT on ESPN2.

Pep Guardiola’s men will prove hard to stop, as City have enjoyed an amazing run in 2021 so far, taking a commanding 14 point lead on the English Premier League table.

They will hope that league form translates to cup action, and they book their place in the Semi Finals.

Monday March 22 sees two massive FA Cup Quarter Finals.
First up at 12.25am AEDT, Chelsea tackle Sheffield United on ESPN2.

Chelsea made it to the final last season, where they fell to Arsenal, and the Blues will be looking to return to Wembley to make amends in 2021.

Sheffield United currently sit bottom of the Premier League and manager Chris Wilder was sacked just last week, throwing preparations for their crunch cup fixture in disarray.

Finally, ESPN’s FA Cup Quarter Final coverage is rounded out by the pick of the last eight action, when Leicester City host Manchester United at 3.55am AEDT on ESPN2.

The Foxes will enjoy home ground advantage at the King Power Stadium against an in-form United side.

Leicester have previously made four FA Cup finals, but have never lifted the silverware, while Manchester United last triumphed in 2016.
