Top teams look to exert control in FA Cup
LONDON (AP) -It's been the season of the underdog in the FA Cup, yet the presence of England's four Champions League entrants gives the famous competition an ominous look heading into the fifth round this weekend.
Only seven Premier League teams made it out of a shock-filled fourth round last month, but the survivors include Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and - only just - Chelsea.
The European champions were forced into a replay against third-tier club Brentford on Sunday to confirm their place in the fifth round, while the other big three were given favorable home matches in the draw for the last 16.
There could still be room for surprises, however, with Luton bidding to become the first non-league club in 99 years to reach the quarterfinals.
