6 of the Best Moments From the FA Cup Fifth Round This Weekend

The FA Cup entered the fifth round this weekend, with seven of the eight ties taking place over the course of Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.


With only Manchester City's repeat of the 2013 final against Wigan left to be played, here's a look at six of the best moments from the cup this weekend...

6. Best Debut

Brighton forward Jurgen Locadia, who explained last week how football potentially saved him from a life of crime, was making his debut for the Seagulls on Saturday following his club record move from PSV Eindhoven in January.


It took just 15 minutes for the Dutchman to open his account as League Two Coventry arrived at the Amex Stadium. Further Brighton goals from Connor Goldson and Leonardo Ulloa secured the win ahead of a consolation goal for the visitors from Jonson Clarke-Harris.

5. Best Save

On just his third appearance for Sheffield Wednesday this season, Cameron Dawson's first excellent half save to deny Swansea defender Mike van der Hoorn might have been what ultimately earned his team a second chance against the Premier League side.


22-year-old Dawson hasn't played in the Championship all season for the Owls, but was given the opportunity to extend his run at the club's FA Cup goalkeeper and justified his selection.


He will take confidence as Wednesday prepare to replay the tie at the Liberty Stadium.

4. Best Assist

Having seen a crucial second goal ruled out and under increasing pressure from Huddersfield, Romelu Lukaku's second of the day for Manchester United came at the right time and was set up by a perfect pass from Alexis Sanchez.


Lukaku himself set the counter attack off when he collected the loose ball on the edge of his own penalty area, before finding Sanchez and continuing his run.


The Chilean's measured defence splitting pass ensured that the Belgian didn't have to break his stride as he ran through on goal and finished beyond Jonas Lossl to wrap up the win.

3. Best Goal

Premier League strugglers West Brom may have exited the FA Cup after losing 2-1 against relegation rivals Southampton , but Salomon Rondon's ultimately consolatory goal was a thing of beauty and pure class.


The Venezuelan front-man hasn't scored many goals this season and this strike was a real stunner, meeting the ball with a perfect left footed volley.


It wasn't enough to get the Baggies back into the game, but the sole focus for the remainder of the season can now shift to Premier League survival.

2. Best Panto Villain

While the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) ruled out Juan Mata's seemingly onside goal in Manchester United's win over Huddersfield, the role of pantomime villain this weekend went to Dele Alli after his soft fall handed Spurs the chance to beat League One Rochdale.


No other Premier League player has been booked more for diving since the start of the 2015/16 season and Alli was seen to be 'looking for the penalty' when he theatrically went down under pressure in the closing stages of the game at Spotland.


Harry Kane converted from 12 yards to give the Premier League side a 2-1 88th minute lead, but justice was done when Steve Davies equalised for Rochale in the 93rd minute.

1. Best Fairytale

Rochdale have won almost as many games in the FA Cup this season as they have done in League One, with the Greater Manchester club sitting rock bottom of the third tier, albeit with several games in hand due to their cup exploits.


While it might have seemed like it was the end of the road after Harry Kane gave Tottenham a late 2-1 lead at Spotland, Steve Davies' even later equaliser was the stuff of dreams.


Given that the quarter final draw had already paired the winner of the tie with either Swansea  or Sheffield Wednesday, a replay at Wembley is actually the grander occasion.
