Full time: Sunderland 1-0 Southampton
Full time: Cardiff City 1-2 Wigan Athletic
15:00: Sheffield Wednesday P-P Charlton Athletic
Full time: Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea
19:09: They might have lost both games in the league, but how important might this game be in the grand scheme of the title race? Manchester City cruise it must be said into the quarter final of the FA Cup with a 2-0 over Chelsea to keep their quadruple dreams alive. Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri got the goals either side of half-time to work as the perfect warm-up for Barcelona and Lionel Messi in mid-week. As for Chelsea, arguably their worst showing of the season as they mustered just one shot on goal and there is now one less trophy for Jose Mourinho to chase.
Full time: Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea
19:04: Four added minutes at the Etihad.
18:59: Chelsea having their best spell of the game in the dieing embers. They force two successive corners, their first of the evening, but Pantilimon claims the second with ease. Really not happened the Blues today.
18:56: Wondering if this is the worst Chelsea performance of the season. Jose Mourinho's men have had one shot on target and have offered nothing in attack all evening. City haven't had to get out of second gear.
18:50: Ball in the Chelsea net again but this one won't count. Dzeko's header is turned away by Cech and Lescott is there to stab home first, but the flag is up, correctly, for offside.
18:46: City threatening to pull away from Chelsea, who have been terrible from start to finish. Dzeko gets and pulls the ball back to Nasri, whose strike is blocked by Cahill.
18:43: Mid-way through the second half and you fancy that is game over. Samir Nasri plays through David Silva, and as David Luiz appeals for offside, Nasri evades the Brazilian and taps into an empty net. Though Luiz was correct that Silva was offside, he took his eye off the ball and it led to the second goal. Play to the whistle. Must be the first rule of any level of the game.
Goal: Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea (Samir Nasri)
18:32: City desperate to get a second but Jovetic's desire spills over somewhat as he clearly dives in attempt to win a free-kick. Referee Mike Dean makes no mistake and shows the forward a yellow card.
18:24: City start as they finished the first half, on the front foot. James Milner crosses from the right and when Gary Cahill returns the ball back his way, the England wideman hoofs the ball wide.
18:21: Eden Hazard through the middle for Chelsea. Last time I recall Chelsea making such a decision was against Manchester United earlier in the season. Doubt we can expect similar tactics in the second half against the blue half of Manchester.
18:18: Change for Chelsea. Mohamed Salah on for Samuel Eto'o. Bit of a suprising one that. Second half under way.
18:03: An entertaining half in all but only one goal in the form of Stevan Jovetic's early strike. Chelsea have been very poor, a far cry from the performance 12 days ago to beat City at the Etihad. Pellegrini's side on top and are so far on course to join Sunderland and Wigan Athletic in the quarter final.
Half time: Manchester City 1-0 Chelsea
18:02: After a bright first half an hour, this one has dropped off a little. City are very keen to press Chelsea when they're anywhere near the halfway line. Half chance for City now though, as Dzeko fails to get a toe-end onto Milner's cross.
17:45: Another forray from Chelsea into the City half, with Hazard and Willian combining but when Ivanovic's cut back finds the Brazilian, he scoops the ball high over the bar. Poor effort, but better from the visitors.
17:42: Chances at both ends as this game comes to life. First Pantilimon fumbles Branislav Ivanovic's driven cross and at the other end Cech parries Edin Dzeko's curled shot. Coming to the boil nicely.
17:38: That's Jovetic's fourth goal in his sixth City start in all competitions amid an injury affected campaign for the ex-Fiorentina forward. First goal conceded in the FA Cup for Chelsea, and Mourinho will be concerned at how easy City opened his side up.
17:36: City ahead and Jovetic finds the target this time. Silva carves Chelsea apart and when Dzeko feeds the Montenegrin, Jovetic makes no mistake to give the hosts the lead. Dream start, and all that.
Goal: Manchester City 1-0 Chelsea (Stevan Jovetic)
17:33: First opening and Petr Cech is a lucky boy. Yaya Toure shrugs off Cahill and hits first time straight at Cech but the Chelsea stopper fumbles the effort and Jovetic is quickly in but he only hits the bar.
17:26: Much jostling for position and frenetic football in the early stages at the Etihad Stadium. Little else to report though, with City marginally on to in the opening 10 minutes.
17:17: Underway at the Etihad Stadium. Not just a place in the FA Cup sixth round at stake here, you fancy.
17:11: Lots of names missing from the Manchester City tea this evening. No Joe Hart, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas or Alvaro Negredo ahead of the Champions League visit of Barcelona in mid-week. Chelsea have no such headache with a free mid-week, and make just one change from the win at City 12 days ago.
Manchester City: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Garcia, Toure, Milner, Silva, Jovetic, Dzeko.
Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Matic; Ramires, Willian, Hazard; Eto'o
17:08: Manchester City are looking to keep their quadruple hopes alive against a Chelsea side who did the double over them in the Premier League and beat them at the start of February at the Etihad through Branislav Ivanovic's goal. Mourinho has only lost once to Pellegrini in their career head-to-head as well. All points towards an away win you'd think.
17:01: So we swing from one game to another and to the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City against Chelsea. Just a quiet afternoon yes? No chance.
16:58: Holders Wigan are on the brink of Wembley again. Ben Watson was again the hero as the Championship side knock-out their Premier League opponents on their own turf. Not a clever performance from Ole Gunner Solskjaer's men, particularly following the mid-week statement attacking the former management structure.
Full time: Cardiff City 1-2 Wigan Athletic
16:54: Four minutes added on at the Cardiff City Stadium and we're half-way through. Wigan almost into the last eight. Cardiff pressing though.
16:48: Five minutes left and Al-Habsi makes a crucial save as Craig Noone threatens. Cardiff cranking up the pressure but still struggling to discover a genuine threat.
16:30: Cardiff enjoying much of the possession but little in the way of chances are coming their way in this showdown between Solskjaer and Rosler. Ben Watson's first half free-kick remains the difference.
16:07: Back underway in south Wales.
15:52: Well Wigan are ahead at the break, but I have no idea how. In the second added on minute at the end of the first half, Juan Cala fails to beat Habsi from all of two yards out. So close the Spaniard came that he even started wheeling way to celebrate, only to see the ball bounce wide. Amazing save from the Oman international, and the holders continue their defence.
Half time: Cardiff City 1-2 Wigan Athletic
15:44: The Champinship side are back in front with a stunning goal. Ben Watson, scorer of the winning goal which secured the FA Cup last May, hits a free-kick from 25 yards which flies past Marshall.
Goal: Cardiff City 1-2 Wigan Athletic (Ben Watson)
15:36: Gremlins in the system at IBT HQ, but I return to rell you about two goals at the DW Stadium. The first goes to the holders as Jordi Gomez gets to the byline and his cut back evades the entire Cardiff back four and Chris McCann slots home. But after a week during which the club's transfer policy under Malky Mackay was criticised, one of his signings in Frazier Campbell equalises for Ole Gunner Solskjaer's side.
Goal: Cardiff City 1-1 Wigan Athletic (Frazier Campbell)
Goal: Cardiff City 0-1 Wigan Athletic (Chris McCann)
15:05: Late getting underway at the Cardiff City Stadium but we're away at last. Around three minutes played.
Cardiff City: Marshall; Taylor, Caulker, Cala, Théophile; Medel, Eikrem; Dæhli, Berget, Zaha; Campbell.
Wigan Athletic: Al Habsi, Perch, Boyce, Ramis, Beausejour, Watson, McCann, Espinoza, Gomez, McManaman, Fortune.
14:47: One down, two to go on this Saturday in the FA Cup. Teams on the way for Cardiff v Wigan
14:41: Sunderland through to the sixth round of the FA Cup as their quest for doemstic cup supremacy continues. Craig Gardner's wonder strike seperated the two sides in the scoreline but frankly the gap was greater than just the single goal. Sunderland in the hat for the last eight. Southampton woeful.
Full time: Sunderland 1-0 Southampton
14:35: Sunderland should be home and dry. After Connor Wickham goes through and shoots wide, Davis denied Borini from close range as the Black Cats begin to outnumber their opponents in attack. Stoppage time approaching.
14:28: What a chance for Southampton! Davies plays in Clyne and the right-back's ball across is begging to be turned in but Rickie Lambert can only spoon the ball over the bar with the goal at his mercy.
14:25: If I am one of travelling Southampton fans at the Stadium of Light today my main concern is how my club seem to be exiting the competition with a bit of a whimper. There is a half chance however, probably the best of the game, for Lallana from Clyne's cross but it bounces into the ground and over the bar.
14:14: Southampton have plenty of options on the bench if Mauricio Pochettino should wish to change things up and at the moment they need a change up because it's been all Sunderland since the goal. Lambert heads woefully wide in the Saints' best moment of the second period.
14:03: Worth noting that only 16,777 people wee at the Stadium of Light to see Craig Gardner give the hosts the lead. An early lunchtime kick-off combined with Sunderland packed schedule and the game being put on television putting off home fans it seems.
13:58: Five minutes into the second half and we have the opening goal of the weekend, and we're unlikely to see any better. The ball falls to Craig Gardner 25 yards out and he smashes the ball in off the crossbar and beyond Kelvin Davies, who might as well have not bothered. You just don't save those.
Goal: Sunderland 1-0 Southampton (Craig Gardner)
13:51: Second half underway in the north east. Much better required.
13:36: Not a classic this one. No goals and very few chances coming from either side. Both have shown intent and threat in attack but it would be wrong to suggest either side have shown evidence of the quality required to take the lead. Must do better, to mimic my school reports.
Half time: Sunderland 0-0 Southampton
13:30: Still very little to report in terms of chances at the game at the Stadium of Light. Fair to say that Southampton carry the greater threat but their final ball is lacking that cutting edge. Approaching half time with the score stil goalless.
13:12: Mid-way through the first half in their opening FA Cup tie of the weekend and while both sides are offering plenty of threat, neither goalkeeper have really been tested so far. Not cagey, but lacking quality.
13:03: Gus Poyet said before the game he would prefer to lose the game than have a replay and both sides have set out their stall as if they want the tie done this afternoon. James Ward-Prowse has the first chance and his header is saved by Ustari.
12:53: Changes aplenty for both sides for this lunchtime kick-off. Nine for Sunderland while Jay Rodriguez is among four players who drop to the bench after the draw with Stoke City. Home side on top thus far.
12:49: After a minute's applause in the memory of Finney, we're underway at the Stadium of Light. A place in the quarter final awaits the winner.
12:43: Approaching kick-off in the north-east. Sunderland are of course already into a domestic final at the end of next month against Manchester City, while Southampton must be considered one of the contenders for the cup having enjoyed an impressive campaign in the Premier League. Teams are in the tunnel.
Sunderland: Ustari, Celustka, Dossena, O'Shea, Vergini, Cattermole, Larsson, Giaccherini, Gardner, Scocco, Borini.
Southampton: K. Davis, Clyne, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Shaw, Wanyama, S. Davis, Ward-Prowse, Lallana, Guly, Lambert.
12:15: On the morning where football is mourning the loss of Sir Tom Finney after his passing overnight, we see the return of the world's oldest and most illustrious competition. Due to the weather we're restricted to just three games including Manchester City against Chelsea at tea-time. Beforehand, Sunderland host Southampton and holders Wigan Athletic travel to Cardiff City.
