  5. 'I thought we'd scored too soon'

    Oxford United 3-0 Newcastle

    Oxford United manager Michael Appleton told BBC Radio Oxford:

    “I was delighted with how the players started the game. I thought we got a foothold in the game in the first half and they showed the quality they’ve got. Simon Eastwood had to make two very good saves towards the interval.

    “I said to the players at half-time that they wouldn’t get a better opportunity to get into the last 16 of the FA Cup. I said that we’d need to keep our concentration and that Simon would have to make one more important save, thankfully he did that from the penalty.

    “I thought we’d scored the first goal too soon and for 15 to 20 minutes, they pinned us in a little bit. But, the players rode the storm and I think the penalty save gave everyone a lift.

    “I think that belief really told in the last 15 minutes and I thought the players were magnificent.”

  6. 'Beyond all of my widest dreams'

    Lincoln City 3-1 Brighton

    Lincoln celebrations

    Lincoln manager Danny Cowley, speaking to BBC Sport: "You always go into games thinking you have a chance. The boys were organised and motivated.

    "I’m surprised. It’s not often football surprised me, but today...

    "I was really pleased that we were able to stay in the game [after going behind]. Half-time gave us a chance to regroup. We were brave all afternoon, we wanted to press high and be committed to our style and what we believe in. 

    "I can’t believe the scenes and the emotion and the support – it’s beyond all of my wildest dreams."

  7. Post update

  8. Hughton bemoans costly errors

    Lincoln City 3-1 Brighton

    Brighton boss Chris Hughton, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was certainly not a result I would have seen coming at half-time

    "We were in decent control at half-time but what you can’t afford is to give them a leg up, and when you concede three goals as poorly as we have, that makes it difficult to win any game.

    "If I look at the goals we conceded, they are all errors."

    On his decision to make nine changes to his team, he said: "I would do it again." 

  9. Goal replay

    Southampton 0-1 Arsenal


    Patient stuff from Arsenal with 15 passes in the build-up to that wonderfully taken goal by Danny Welbeck. Southampton are letting the Gunners press high up the pitch and were punished as a result.

  10. 'We didn't underestimate Oxford'

    Oxford United 3-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez:

    “We didn’t underestimate Oxford. We didn’t take our chances in the first half, we missed a penalty and Oxford took their chances.

    “You have to give credit to them as they were fighting for the result and we just made too many mistakes and paid for the first one at the start of the second half.

    “I feel sorry for the fans and for us as we wanted to go through and we could’ve done on the chances created in the first half. It’s something we need to analyse and find out why we made the mistakes we did and be ready for the next game.”

  11. Post update

    Southampton 0-1 Arsenal

    Forgotten man Danny Welbeck has just scored to put Arsenal ahead, a lovely little finish it was too.

    Follow that game here. 

  12. 'We can't ask Boro to play their kids'

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Accrington Stanley

    Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman, speaking to BBC Sport: "A lot of other clubs have played their kids - we can't ask Middlesbrough to play a weakened side so it's a testament to how well we've played that it was only one-nil.

    "The financial aspect is great so a replay would've been fantastic.

    "But now we've got to show the same heart and spirit in every league game from now until the end of the season."

  13. 'Downing scored an amazing goal'

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Accrington Stanley


    Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka, speaking to BBC Sport: "The most important thing with these games is to just get through to the next round - we had chances to score more but sometimes it's difficult against these sides.

    "Accrington Stanley were really organised and kept fighting to the end so I'm really pleased.

    "Stewart Downing deserved to score, it was an amazing goal. I told him at half-time that he was one of the best players on the pitch but to score a goal is always best."

  14. The fifth-round draw

    Wondering when the draw for the fifth round is?

    It takes place this Monday and will be broadcast live on The One Show on BBC One from 19:00 GMT. England boss Gareth Southgate is in attendance.

  15. 'Ivanovic is a legend here'

    Chelsea 4-0 Brentford


    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte speaking to Bein Sports: "I am pleased and very happy for the commitment from my team. It is important to see that all the players in the squad and involved in the project. It was important to go to the next round and to think about the next game at Liverpool - a tough game."

    On potential transfers for Branislav Ivanovic and Asmir Begovic: "It is difficult to make a decision but we must respect every decision for the players. Ivanovic is a legend here. He has played a lot of games and won a lot. In this season he is not playing in the same way as the last few years. We must wait over these next three days and we will see. It is the same for Asmir. He is important for us. In his position we need to find the right substitution, otherwise he is happy to stay with us."

  16. Big Sam bangs the drum

    Crystal Palace 0-3 Manchester City

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce: "Only time will tell whether that defeat is a blessing or not. Every game you play you want to win it. We've lost that habit of winning.  

    "Our game is okay in parts, we some times look quite good and then a mistake creeps in and the opposition punish us."

  17. 'This is the beauty of the FA Cup'

    Tottenham 4-3 Wycombe

    Tottenham Hotspur

    More from Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "We did not underestimate them. Credit them, we cannot play them down. It was very difficult for us. It was difficult to stop them, they showed more desire and quality on the pitch. It is only fair to say the truth. 

    "This is the beauty of the FA Cup. It's magic. This is completely different to Spain or France. It is the oldest competition in the world and the teams and people try to win to lift the trophy. It is always special.

    "We will try to win the three competitions. It is tough because you need all the squad."

    Here's who is still left in the competition from the top flight:

  19. 'They were heroes'

    Tottenham 4-3 Wycombe

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "That is the FA Cup. Every time we play in it, anything can happen. 

    "Wycombe played very, very well in the first half. In the second half we increased our level and pushed a bit and I think we played better than them but in football you need some luck and with the last chance we scored and won. 

    "Full credit to Wycombe they played very well. Congratulations to them because they were heroes."
