The FA Cup fifth round is under way this week and by Thursday night we will know the eight teams through to the sixth round, as it is officially known, or quarter-finals.

Bournemouth were the first side to booked their spot in the sixth-round after seeing off Burnley on Tuesday evening, and Manchester United joined them with an extra-time win over West Ham.

The holders Arsenal are out, as are the Premier League champions Liverpool, so Manchester City, who beat on Wednesday evening, are the favourites to win the competition, but there are plenty of big hitters still left in the running.
