Hello and welcome to live coverage of Newcastle’s first FA Cup quarter-final in 14 years. After beating Rochdale, Oxford and West Brom in the earlier rounds, they are now playing at the competition’s highest difficulty level: Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side will be in the mood to make Newcastle pay for Liverpool winning the league. Despite the pathetic defence of their league title, City could still end the season with three major trophies, so these aren’t exactly end times at the Etihad.
Newcastle drew 2-2 with City in the league and are in excellent form themselves, so they will feel they have a great chance of blowing the competition wide open. The match will be decided tonight, with extra-time and penalties if necessary. The winners will join Manchester United, Arsenal and
Chelsea in the last four.
