The past week: What you may have missed

This past week in football has been huge, whether you are a fan of the Premier League or the masterclass that is the La Liga, there is no denying that the games of the past week have been some of the best in a very long time.

“We won it [the FA Cup] back in 2016 and reached the final last year – and of course we won the Europa League and the Carabao Cup as well, so that’s at least one cup final in each of the last three seasons,” said Smalling to the club’s official website.

“I think, in general, we stand ourselves in very good positions when we go up against teams over 90 minutes in cup ties.”

“I think that experience we’ve had over the last few years in all of the cup competitions is very useful and tees us up nicely for another crack at the FA Cup this year,” he commented.

“I think it just brings pure excitement for you. No matter what happened the previous year – whether you won the cup or whether it brought you disappointment – it’s like a fresh start all over again and you’ve no idea who you’re going to get in the draw. That’s what makes it so exciting.”
