With two FA Cup quarter-final matches and three Premier League games taking place, there is plenty to get stuck into on Saturday.

Here are our expert's selections for the day's matches.

Wolves vs Coventry (Saturday, 12.15pm)

Coventry have visited five of the top six in the second tier, losing 2-1 on four occasions.

The Sky Blues have also had trouble on their travels overall, suffering eight away losses. Outside of a surprise 2-0 defeat at bottom side Rotherham, those have all come by a single goal.

Wolves are well-versed in narrow wins by this point, having edged games by one goal in nine of their 12 league victories.

The hosts have won by a single goal in four of their last five games, continuing their good form in spite of their injury list.

Burnley vs Brentford (Saturday, 3pm)

Burnley have not coped with the step up from the Championship to the Premier League this season and another nail could be stuck into their relegation coffin when Brentford come to town.

The Clarets have been far too exposed at the back, conceding two or more goals in each of their last seven assignments and the likes of Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa will be relishing the chance to take on this fragile defence.

Burnley may already be planning for life back in England's second tier and Brentford can help them on their way by securing a vital victory that will edge them closer to another season in the top flight.

Luton vs Nottingham Forest (Saturday, 3pm)

Forest have won at Chelsea and Newcastle this season, but their away form has been generally poor and they head to Bedfordshire having lost their last three league matches.

They were unfortunate not to get anything at home to Liverpool when they were stung by a late goal, but manager Nuno Espirito Santo will want to see a much stronger attacking performance following a blunt effort at Brighton last time.

The Hatters will almost certainly get on the front foot and not just because they wish to make up for their midweek nightmare on the south coast, when they gave up a 3-0 lead to lose 4-3 at Bournemouth.

Luton have performed best at home when taking the game to their opponents, impressing against some of the teams at the top of the table and they will not hold back, so expect this clash to be the eighth match in 10 that has produced at least four goals.

Manchester City vs Newcastle (Saturday, 5.30pm)

City are in fantastic form heading into this encounter and they should have no problems dispatching Newcastle, who are struggling with injuries and look ready for the season to end.

Guardiola's troops have been sensational at the Etihad, where they have not lost since 2022, while this stadium has not been a happy hunting ground for the Magpies.

Howe's side have failed to score on their last five trips to City, losing all of those fixtures and the absences of both Anthony Gordon and Callum Wilson will make it harder for them to find the back of the net.

Fulham vs Tottenham (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Tottenham can move into the top four with a win on Saturday and they should be able to build on their fantastic 4-0 win at Villa Park when they visit Craven Cottage.

Fulham have been respectable this season and are well clear of the looming relegation battle, but they did lose at Wolves last weekend and have only won three of their last 11 competitive fixtures, losing against Chelsea, Newcastle, Villa and then Wolves in this period.

Spurs have not lost against Fulham in over a decade and you have to go back all the way back to 2011 for the last time they lost at Craven Cottage, with the favourites winning 12 of the 15 meetings since that 1-0 triumph in west London and losing just once.
