Premier League and FA Cup predictions: Lampard loving it, Arsenal on target, Manchester United safely through

No let up in the English top-flight action as clubs battle for league points and a cup semi-final spot

With Premier League games seemingly going on all-day everyday at the moment, it seems perfectly sensible to throw FA Cup fixtures into the mix as well.

And it's the sixth-round clashes that provide most of the interest this weekend, with Norwich against Manchester United kicking-off the action on Saturday.

In Sunday's triple-header, Sheffield United – who have managed just one point from three league games since the restart – host Arsenal, followed by Leicester City taking on Chelsea at the King Power Stadium.

Newcastle United, playing their first FA Cup quarter-final since 2006, then face holders Manchester City at St James' Park. The Magpies last reached the FA Cup semi-finals in 2000, when Bobby Robson was manager. City will be looking to pick themselves up from a disappointing defeat at Chelsea on Thursday.

On the league front, struggling Aston Villa take on high-flying Wolves in Saturday's Midlands derby, while Watford face Southampton at Vicarage Road on Sunday. Crystal Palace's game against Burnley completes the latest round of games ... for 24 hours at least.
