For the eight teams remaining in the 2022/23 FA Cup, Wembley is just 90 minutes away. Fans are already imagining the walk down Wembley Way upon arrival and the perilous journey home.
This competition has been dominated by the so-called ‘Big Six’ into the 21st century, and while a couple of the big boys remain, half of the teams left in this season’s FA Cup are currently plying their trade outside the Premier League.
We’ve been treated to some magic, that’s for sure, and the prospect of a shocking winner is still in the cards. The quarter-final draw has created some intriguing encounters which guarantee at least one league representative in the semi-finals.
Here’s how to watch the next round of FA Cup matches.
When will the 2022/23 FA Cup quarter-finals take place?
The upcoming England cup the quarter-finals will be played over two days. One match will be played on Saturday 18 March, with the other three games taking place on Sunday 19 March.
How to watch the 2022/23 FA Cup Quarter Finals on TV
Fans around the world will be able to tune into each of the upcoming FA Cup Quarter Finals. Here’s how and where you can watch each cup tie.
Saturday 18 March
Manchester City v Burnley
The draw of the round is, without a doubt, Burnley’s journey Manchester City. Vincent Kompany’s homecoming is the main narrative of Saturday’s encounter, but his Clarets side have a legitimate chance at an upset.
Burnley have been by far the best team in the Championship this season and they will be fully confident of impressing the Nationals on Saturday. However, defeating Pep Guardiola’s side at home, as Kompany knows better than anyone, is no easy feat.
Burnley could impress us on Saturday, but it’s hard to imagine them advancing at City’s expense.
Sunday 19 March
Sheffield United versus Blackburn Rovers
Sheffield United’s priority remains to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, so Blackburn will appreciate their chances at Bramall Lane on Sunday.
The Blades upset Tottenham with a rotated XI in the previous round, while Blackburn overcame Leicester at King Power. Sunday’s visitors recently beat their second-division quarter-final opponents and could repeat the feat this weekend.
Brighton & Hove Albion v Grimsby Town
Grimsby’s magical ride will surely conclude in Brighton. The Seagulls are seeking European places in the Premier League and have so far gone under the radar in the FA Cup.
The Mariners’ Cup journey began in November but their biggest scalp came in the last round when they offloaded Premier League strugglers Southampton. Their reward is a journey to the south coast, but the return journey may be a little bleaker.

Manchester United vs Fulham
Man Utd are expected to overcome Fulham on Sunday. Although the Cottagers have impressed this season, they have vastly exceeded expectations in terms of expected Premier League points. Data would suggest they are in a false position in the table, and their shortcomings were laid bare against Arsenal last time out.
The return of Joao Palhinha is huge, however, and we suspect they could play against the Red Devils on Sunday afternoon.
