The FA Cup Quarter Finals are here with several teams from the Premier League participating. This weekend’s FA Cup matches coincide with Premier League matches, but are also following a week long break for most teams involved.
League One side Sheffield United is the lowest tier team left in the competition while Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic are the last two teams left from the Championship.

Just a reminder that matches ending in a draw result in a replayed match as a reverse fixture (Home teams swap locations).
Sheffield United v Charlton Athletic Quick Pick
Charlton have had some recent off pitch problems that could affect them on the field. Not to mention that they are in the drop zone and only one point off the bottom of the Championship table. My pick is for a Sheffield United win. They have been playing very well in the FA Cup and have already surprised several times to make it to the Quarter Finals.
Sheffield United win: 2.30; Draw: 3.25; Charlton win: 3.00
Form: Sheff United (W, W, W, W, W, ?) Charlton (L, L, L, W, W, L)
Hull City v Sunderland Quick Pick
The second all Premier League quarter final tie could also give Sunderland their second trip to Wembley Stadium this year. My pick is for a Sunderland win. They will be going into this match flying high off the back of the Capital One Cup Final. Yes, they did lose, but they played well and were only undone by some amazing goals from Manchester City.
Hull win: 2.15; Draw: 3.20; Sunderland win: 3.30
Form: Hull (W, L, D, W, W, L) Sunderland (W, W, L, W, L, L)
Manchester City v Wigan Athletic Quick Pick
There will be no repeat of last year’s FA Cup Final Wigan traveling to Manchester City in the quarter finals. It seems unlikely that there would be a repeat win for Wigan this time around as well.
Man City win: 1.15; Draw: 7.00; Wigan win: 15.00
Form: Man City (L, D, W, L, W, W) Wigan (L, W, W, W, W, W)
