Not many upsets and no Premier League side is out yet. All of the the Premier League sides did have to come from behind though!

I’m sure that the major talking point of this round will be the fixture that involved West Ham and Millwall.

The match went into extra time after finishing 1-1 and West Ham came away 3-1 winners but the game will be remembered for the supporter incidents.

There were hundreds of rioting fans and in the chaos a supporter was stabbed in the chest, also when West Ham scored their second goal fans invaded the pitch and the players had to come off.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “It looks like there has been some planned trouble from fans.”

Trouble was expected because of the rivalries but not to the scale it reached. English fans are very passionate about their clubs but I think that to stab people is a bit over the top.
