Liverpool and West Ham each suffered the brutality of FA Cup-sets on Saturday, while Harry Kane rescued an opportunity for Tottenham to play a replay against League Two side Newport County.
With three Premier League teams in action on Sunday, the focus will shift to Chelsea and Manchester City, in particular, who aim to avoid setbacks of their own.
Antonio Conte’s side was involved in a crushing defeat at Arsenal on Wednesday, as Chelsea was eliminated in the Carabao Cup semifinals by 2-1 on aggregate.
Meanwhile, Man City will meet the Gunners in the Carabao final after advancing a day prior. Pep Guardiola and Co. will surely use some squad rotation as well, particularly as Champions League action begins to pick up again in a few weeks.
Chelsea vs. Newcastle — 8:30 a.m. ET
Cardiff City vs. Manchester City — 11 a.m. ET
