Manchester City host Burnley in the only FA Cup last-eight match the day before.

Sheffield United then open the Sunday line-up against Championship rivals Blackburn at noon, before Brighton meet giantkillers Grimsby and United play at 4.30pm.

On the same day, table-toppers Arsenal greet Crystal Palace in the Premier League, while Real Madrid visit Barcelona in a LaLiga El Clasico.

Serie A also has a couple of crackers.

Inter Milan are at home to Juventus and Jose Mourinho‘s Roma go to Lazio.

Erik ten Hag’s United are chasing the Quadruple after winning the Carabao Cup last Sunday.

And a fortnight ahead of their tie with Fulham, Old Trafford legend Gary Neville has agreed a potentially-embarrassing bet with an Arsenal fan.

Neville still believes Manchester City will retain the title, despite the Gunners’ five-point lead.


THE ties take place on March 18-19.

Man City v Burnley (5.45pm, Sat March 18)
Sheff Utd v Blackburn (12 noon, Sun March 19)
Brighton vs Grimsby (2.15pm, Sun)
Man Utd vs Fulham (4.30pm, Sun)


Arsenal, arguably, have the benefit of not being in the FA Cup.

But ex-England defender Neville has agreed to a wager on social media that means he’ll don a a Gunners’ shirt labelled “champions” if Mikel Arteta‘s men do lift the crown.
