The FA Cup Fifth Round finds itself in midweek territory this season, with plenty of Premier League big guns in action and a giant killing or two still in the offing.

Seven of the eight Round of 16 clashes take place between Tuesday and Thursday, with places in the quarter-finals the prize.

Chelsea are on course to life the Cup for the first time since 2018 but face a tricky proposition on Wednesday night when they head just north of London to face Luton.

The Championship side are having a fine season and are guaranteed an intimidating atmosphere at their Kenilworth Road home.

Thomas Tuchel’s side, meanwhile, need to immediately cast aside the bitter taste of their EFL Cup final defeat on penalties at Wembley last weekend, having come through Stamford Bridge ties against lower league opposition in this competition so far.

Liverpool saw off the Blues at the home of football on Sunday and continue their hunt for the quadruple on Wednesday at home to Norwich.

The Reds are firing on all cylinders at the moment and welcome the Canaries to Anfield, with the visitors likely glad of the relief from their seemingly doomed Premier League campaign.

Southampton and West Ham complete Wednesday’s fixtures with their all-EPL clash at St Mary’s Stadium.

Both are going well in the league but will be desperate for a good crack at sealing a rare piece of silverware.

It would be a giant killing for the ages if Boreham Wood can pull off an upset away to relegation-threatened Everton on Thursday.

The National League side continue their dream run at Goodison Park, with Frank Lampard’s Toffees in increasingly dire need for some positives against the non-leaguers.

Manchester City were Cup final winners in 2019 and are firmly in the hunt again this time around, with an away trip to Championship strugglers Peterborough next on their hitlist.

Pep Guardiola’s men go to London Road to take on the Posh, who are under new management in the form of Grant McCann as they attempt to avoid the drop to the third tier of English football.

Erratic Tottenham will be a little uneasy on their Tuesday trip north, meanwhile, as they travel to in-form Middlesbrough.

Their hosts are firmly in the playoff shake up to bring Premier League football back to Teesside, while Antonio Conte’s team have provided feast or famine for their increasingly bewildered fanbase.

Crystal Palace will fancy their chances of securing a rare berth in the last eight when they welcome Championship Stoke to Selhurst Park.

The Fifth Round is completed next Monday night at the City Ground, when Nottingham Forest go up against Huddersfield.

It’s a tie that guarantees at least one side from outside the top flight in the quarter-finals, although both fancy their chances of returning to English football’s top table next season.
