Premier League and FA Cup quarter-finals: what to look out for this weekend

It’s an eight-game lineup, with places at Wembley up for grabs and a quartet of top-flight matches tooGary O’Neil conceded his decision to start Pedro Neto against Fulham backfired, with the Portuguese winger set to miss Wolves’ FA Cup date with Coventry on Saturday after aggravating a hamstring problem. Jean-Ricner Bellegarde is also a doubt with a knee injury sustained in the same game, so opportunities could arise for those on the periphery. Nathan Fraser, a 19-year-old forward, made his full debut last time out. Noha Lemina, the 18-year-old brother of the midfielder Mario and who was on the bench against Fulham, could get his first minutes in old gold while the 18-year-old striker Leon Chiwome – tipped for a bright future last year in our Next Generation series – is another untried option. The 20-year-old midfielder Tawanda Chirewa could also feature but O’Neil, with last week’s big calls fresh in the memory, will be careful not to be too bold given what is at stake.
