Big Two Kept Apart in Quarter Finals – Rampant Manchester City Visit Swansea – In Form Manchester United Face Tough Trip to Wolves

Emirates FA Cup Quarter Final – Manchester United With Another Tough Away Fixture At Wolves

By Marc Gingell

Matches to be Played 15th to 17th March 2019

Swansea City v Manchester City
Watford v Crystal Palace
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United
Millwall v Brighton


Wayne Bridge And Darren Fletcher Select Numbers

After the excitement of 90 minutes action at Stamford Bridges, in a corporate box that over looked the pitch, former players from Chelsea and Manchester United met to pick the balls that would determine who played who in the quarter finals.

Wayne Bridge, the 38 year old former left back who started his career with Southampton before moving to Chelsea, felt Chelsea did okay until United scored. He picked out ball number six after, he’d emptied the balls from the bag into the bowl, and given them a swirl.

Three years younger that Bridge, Darren Fletcher, who played 223 games for United before moving to West Bromwich Albion and now Stoke had been impressed with every aspect of United’s game. He talked about the Old Trafford trust factor, and how United had executed a perfect game plan, before he dived into the bowl and picked out ball number four.

Six Teams Relieved!

With Manchester City, out so quickly, six teams breathed a sigh of relief that they didn’t have to face City so rampant in recent domestic cup games.

Pattaya One. Pep Guardiola. Back to South Wales.

Watford v Crystal Palace

Next up pitched Watford with Crystal Palace and both sides will fancy their chances. Palace are the only team to have beaten Manchester at home this season and they pushed Liverpool at Anfield all the way before going down 4-3. Palace are still in a relegation battle whilst Watford are comfortable in eighth.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United

My dark horse takes on United and this could be a bigger challenge for them than Chelsea last night. Wolves have a strong back three and players further forward capable of scoring spectacular goals.

Pattaya One. Nuno Espírito Santo. Some impressive results this season.

Millwall v Brighton

With Swansea hosting Manchester City all focus will now be on Millwall to be the team, outside the top flight, to make the semi final. And Brighton, still with a relegation dog fight on their hands unless they can get at least six points from their three games before Millwall. They play away at Leicester, home to Huddersfield, and away to Crystal Palace. They will not be relishing a scrap at the Lions Den if they get nothing from those games.
