The Barn Door Live: FA Cup Edition

The Magic of the FA Cup could see either of these former Premier League sides take down the big guns. - Ben Hoskins

There's no Premier League action on tap this weekend, but that doesn't mean our fantasy charges won't be taking to the pitch, as the FA Cup gets into full swing heading towards its exciting conclusion at season's end.

We've already had some great discussions this week thanks to excellent fanposts by Ken and Stall, so hopefully we can continue the conversation here as the FA Cup matches take over from our regularly scheduled Premier League action.

While we won't be tracking points scored for our fantasy teams this weekend, these games will still have some impact in our lineups for next weekend, whether that is due to the starting squads put out, injuries or players hitting a patch of form.

We'll kick off the weekend with an early match between Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers before myriad other matches get underway all at once on Saturday. We then finish with the fixture of the weekend as Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur in the late match.

The Saturday matches involving Premier League Clubs are as follows:

Sunday also features games from BPL sides, including some of the league's best and worst teams.

Who are you rooting for to make it through to the next round? Feel free to use this space to post lineups, comment on the matches or talk about the fantasy implications for your team in Week 21. Happy chatting!
