FA Cup 2021/22 – 5th Rd tie-by-tie preview

The 150th anniversary of the FA Cup continues on Tuesday 1st March with the 5th Round, and during that week and the following Monday, 16 clubs from the Premier League, EFL Championship and the National League, will battle it out for a place in the Quarter Finals.

To commemorate this significant anniversary my highly rated ‘FA Cup 150’ book provides facts and stats and Top 150 lists for the first 150 years of the FA Cup and can be ordered from my website here: https://facupfactfile.co.uk/shop or from Amazon on this link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cup-150-unofficial-cornucopia-FACupFactfile/dp/1527295648.

.

One specific quirk of this season’s 5th Round is that the away team has a better head-to-head record in the competition against their respective home team opponents in all ties (except for Everton vs Boreham Wood, who are unsurprisingly meeting in the FA Cup for the first time).
