FA Cup: Premier League clubs are getting upstaged by lower leagues

Hello fam. Did you all see the FA Cup last weekend? It was crazy, man. All the matches played were awesome. There were huge surprises in the FA Cup, dudes. Guess what? Burnley is out of the FA Cup! You might be wondering how Lincoln City managed to oust the Premier League club from the competition, but that’s just one of the things no one understands. At this time, all we can do is congratulate Lincoln City. They just achieved a football miracle.

Meanwhile, Leicester City just got handed yet another defeat. Millwall, a third-tier side, defeated the Premier League champions Leicester City in the fifth round of the competition. Leicester are in serious trouble; they have now lost five consecutive games; furthermore, their next opponent is Sevilla in the Champions League. It looks like they need more than “dilly-dong, dilly-dong” right now.

I want to point out, also, that Millwall is not just any club. They are a non-league side; however, they have beaten Premier League clubs like Bournemouth and Watford in the FA Cup so far. I think it is safe to assume that even if they face Chelsea, they would win. Okay, maybe not, but they definitely earned their current giant-killer status. Next stop, Tottenham Hotspur; a little quaking in their boots wouldn’t be inappropriate.

Meanwhile, Manchester City floundered yet again. Yet another non-league side, Huddersfield Town forced the Premier League giants to a replay. Manchester City couldn’t even score; the match ended 0-0. Man, these Premier League sides must be ashamed of themselves.

However, not all Premier League teams were a total disgrace. Manchester United beat Blackburn 2-1, courtesy of goals from Marcus Rashford and Zlatan himself. Well, this wasn’t a bad performance, though it wasn’t their best. However, they got the victory. That’s all that matters. The same goes for Tottenham, who beat Fulham 3-0. Harry Kane scored a beautiful hat-trick in this tie. Millwall. . .

Today, Arsenal will take on Sutton United. I smell another upset.
