First up is Blackburn hosting West Ham at 9:00 am E.T. The Hammers have won just one of their last five Premier League fixtures, but they are here courtesy of an extra-time win over Liverpool in the last round, with hero Angelo Ogbonna back in the starting lineup for today.
At 10:00 am E.T., two Premier League sides square off with Crystal Palace visiting Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. The Eagles haven’t won a league game since mid-December, but successive wins over top flight clubs Southampton and Stoke City in the Cup has placed them here in the fifth round, while Spurs is one of the most in-form teams in England.
Finally, a bigtime matchup, first out of the hat in the fifth round draw, Chelsea hosts Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. With consecutive league losses to Spurs and Leicester City, Man City could use a victory in the worst way, and knocking out Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea could do the trick. Meanwhile, Hiddink hinted that Matt Miazga could make his Blues debut any day now. Could that day be today?
