Premier league will return on Tuesday after taking a break last weekend to pave way for FA Cup fourth round matches. Manchester United will host Burnley tomorrow as they look to pile more pressure on 4th placed side Chelsea who play away on Wednesday against Bournemouth. Arsenal must beat Cardiff at home to stay closer to their top four rivals. Tottenham will hope for a better result after FA Cup and League Cup elimination when they welcome Watford at Wembley on Wednesday night. A victory for Manchester City against Newcastle United tomorrow will pile pressure on Liverpool who hosts Leicester City on Wednesday. Today, before we welcome back the EPL, let’s recognize five best performers in FA Cup fourth round last weekend.

5. Millwall Team- KO Everton

Championship side Millwall destroyed Premier League side Everton 3-2 at famous ‘Lion’ Den to book a place in FA Cup fourth round. The defeat piles more pressure on Marco Silva. The Toffees were superior in all departments against their London rivals but free-kicks proved to be their underbelly.

All three goals they conceded came via free-kicks. Lucas Digne must be having a bad weekend because he committed two costly fouls that gave away two free-kicks. It was a spirited performance by Millwall and they fully deserve to be recognized.

4. Andros Townsend- 1 Goal

Tottenham Hotspurs season is crumbling all over again. In one week, they have been eliminated from two Cups. Last week, Chelsea defeated them in post-match penalties to book a place in the final. A few days later, Crystal Palace knocked them out of FA Cup. This means their only hope for a trophy is UEFA Champions League. They will face high flying Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in few weeks time. They are missing key players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli through injury.

Roy Hodgson side stayed in perfect shape from start to finish. They were lucky Kieran Trippier could not convert a crucial penalty at the stroke of half time. Andros Townsend was having a good game and he capped it with a perfect penalty against his former team. He could’ve made it 3-0 a few minutes later but Gazzaniga was equal to the task.

3. Scott Wagstaff- 2 Goals

FA Cup offers fans a chance to see lower league clubs take on Premier League giants. In most cases, the top flight sides win these games but in some instances, we witness embarrassing defeats.

AFC Wimbledon did exactly that against West Ham United last weekend to book a place in the fifth round. League One bottom side hammered the London side 4-2 in a historic clash held at Kings Meadow. The goalkeeper did a good job to keep Manuel Pellegrini men out. However, Man of the Match award goes to Scott Wagstaff who netted a brace to secure the results for his team.
