In fact only three top flight teams advanced – West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace and Leicester City – in an extraordinary afternoon. There were plenty of performances that fans will be bemoaning today, with many fringe players failing to impress.
Here are the ten biggest villains from yesterday’s action:
10) Kyle Bartley (Swansea City)
Sent-off after just seven minutes against Blackburn Rovers, giving his side a mountain to climb. The Swans would take the lead before eventually succumbing to their Championship opponents 3-1.
9) Mohamed Salah (Chelsea)
The Egyptian was handed a rare chance to impress in a Chelsea shirt, but did little to impress manager Jose Mourinho. With the Blues exiting the FA Cup, his chances are going to become even less frequent.
