F.A. Cup Update

Over in England, they have played the Fifth Round of the F.A. Cup, which is the Round of 16.  Manchester United knocked out West Ham United 1-0 with a goal in extra time.  Everton eliminated Spurs with a wild 5-4 win in extra time.  Bournemouth upset Burnley 2-0 and is the only team remaining in the competition that is not in the Premier League.  So the quarter-finals (to be played the weekend of March 20) will look like this (home team listed first):

Everton v. Manchester City
Bournemouth v. Southampton
Leicester City v. Manchester United
Chelsea v. Sheffield United

We're still on pace for a Manchester derby in the final, which would be amazing.
