Manchester City will attempt to keep their hopes alive of a treble this evening.

Pep Guardiola's side go to Bristol City in the FA Cup 5th round.

Leicester - who won the competition in 2021 - host Blackburn, and Stoke play Brighton.

In the Premier League, Fulham are home to Leeds.

Chelsea have confirmed defender Thiago Silva suffered knee ligament damage during Sunday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

He is expected to be out for up to six weeks.

==
Ireland will begin their 2024 Six Nations campaign away to France on Friday the 2nd of February.

The venue for the game has yet to be confirmed, as the Stade de France won't be in use due to preparation for the Olympics.

Italy and Wales will both visit the Aviva Stadium in February, while Ireland go to Twickenham to face England on March 9th.

The campaign concludes with a home match against Scotland on Saturday, March 16th.

Tadhg Furlong, Jamison Gibson-Park and Robbie Henshaw have been included in Ireland's training squad for this week.

But, Finlay Bealham has been ruled out for the rest of the Guinness Six Nations after twisting twisted his knee in the first half of the Italy game.

Johnny Sexton (groin) and Garry Ringrose (calf) have also been named in the 27-man squad that will host an open session in the Aviva Stadium on Thursday.

Eadestown’s Jimmy O’Brien is retained; he’s won 4 Ireland caps to date.

Kildare footballers will regroup this evening ahead of next Sunday’s vital match against Louth in Ardee.

A big task ahead for the management to build morale after last Sunday’s 14 points defeat to Derry.
