WATCH: FA Cup Sunday preview

Watch as Steve Freeth, Kelly Somers and Sam Matterface discuss Sunday's three FA Cup ties - Sheffield Utd v Blackburn, Brighton v Grimsby and Man Utd v Fulham.

With Premier League giants such as Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea having all already exited the competition, the FA Cup has an open feel ahead of the quarter-finals.

Sunday's action sees an all-Championship affair between the promotion-chasing Sheffield United and Blackburn Rovers, whilst League Two Grimsby will be hoping to cause another upset to book a semi-final place at Wembley away to Brighton, before this year's EFL Cup winners Man Utd host Fulham.

Paul Heckingbottom's Sheffield United have been in the automatic promotion positions for the majority of this campaign in the Championship but have struggled of late with four defeats in their last six in the league, and Blackburn will likely back themselves against the Blades having defeated them at Ewood Park at the start of this month.

For Grimsby, another mammoth task awaits the Mariners as they travel to the Premier League's high-flying Brighton following a stunning 2-1 triumph at fellow top-flight side Southampton in the previous round.

This favourable draw for Brighton against fourth-tier opposition presents Roberto De Zerbi's charges with a huge opportunity to reach the last four of the famous competition for the second time in five years, having succumbed 1-0 to Manchester City in the semi-finals at Wembley in 2019.

To conclude Sunday's ties, two Premier League teams who have enjoyed successful seasons to date meet at Old Trafford as Manchester United compete for a possible second domestic trophy after claiming the EFL Cup last month against an impressive Fulham outfit who currently lie in the top half of the Premier League table.

Both sides have suffered poor recent results in the league, however, with the Red Devils following up an embarrassing 7-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield with a frustrating goalless draw at home to Southampton, with Fulham having lost consecutive matches against fellow London sides Brentford and Arsenal.

This makes for an intriguing cup tie at the Theatre of Dreams, with two technically adept sides putting it all on the line for a place at Wembley for the semi-finals.
