Peterborough and Middlesbrough head into tonight’s FA Cup fifth round ties dreaming of causing an upset in the famous competition.

The world’s oldest tournament has provided plenty of storylines already this season and we preview all the big midweek clashes.

FA Cup previews

Premier League leaders Manchester City make the trip to Cambridgeshire to face rock-bottom Championship side Peterborough.

While City have regularly lifted the Premier League and Carabao Cup under Pep Guardiola, the Catalan boss has only won the FA Cup once in 2019.

The trip to Posh could also be the perfect chance for Kevin De Bruyne to rediscover his mojo after a strangely subdued season for the Belgian.

In another potential FA Cup classic, Manchester United’s fourth round conquerors Middlesbrough welcome Tottenham to the Riverside.

But if Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son hit form, it may be tough for Boro to claim another top-flight scalp under Chris Wilder.

The third and final tie on Tuesday sees Stoke take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Eagles talisman Wilfried Zaha has looked sharp in recent weeks and is on course for the most productive season of his career — we put the 29-year-old in the spotlight.

Burnley host Leicester knowing a third victory in four games would take them out of the relegation zone and drag the Foxes into the battle at the bottom.

It has been a difficult season for Brendan Rodgers’ side with injuries a constant issue — but nobody expected them to be closer to the bottom three than the top four.

If they are to propel themselves back into mid-table mediocrity, Rodgers needs to work out how best to utilise James Maddison’s many talents.
