Football:The sixth round of the FA cup takes place this weekend and one fifth round clash also.  On Saturday second in the league and rejuvenated under Guus Hiddink Chelsea take on lower league Coventry at Ricoh Arena.  Manchester United travel to London to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage having beaten them comprehensively in league a few weeks ago they will be hoping for a similar result to keep their hopes alive of winning four major honours this term.

Sunday sees Middlesbrough take on Everton at Goodison Park.  Middlesbrough are on a shocking run of form and find themselves of real danger of being relegated while Everton will hope to have a good run in the FA cup, something that has been missing in David Moyes’ time at the club.  Arsenal face Burnley at the Emirates in the fifth round of the cup. Burnley will have high hopes of achieving a cup double over their opposition having already eliminated them from the League Cup.  The winners of this fixture get to face Hull in the next round.

In cricket, England take on the West Indies in the fifth test in the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain.  In a week in which cricket will be remembered for the shocking scenes in Pakistan where the Sri Lankan team were attacked by gunmen, both teams will be hoping to create a better spectacle for the sport to be remembered.
