AFC Wimbledon produced a stunning performance to hold off a second-half comeback from West Ham and earn a 4-2 FA Cup scalp. Kwesi Appiah opened the scores, as Scott Wagstaff scored a double and put his side 3-0 up against the Premier League opponents. West Ham managed to score 2 in the second half, but 19-year-old Toby Sibbick wrapped it up for Wimbledon two minutes from time.

Wimbledon is at the bottom of the League One, which is third tier in English football, and this is without any doubt the highlight of their season so far.

Manchester City won their fourth round game against Burnley in fine fashion, as Pep’s boys found the net five times. Guardiola played with a mixed team, resting some of his best players, but strong enough to trash Burnley 5-0 for second time this season.

Kevin de Bruyne put on a show, being directly involved in 3 goals. He set up Bernardo Silva’s goal, scored from outside the box and provided the cross that Kevin Long turned into his own net.

Shrewsbury was on the brink of another FA Cup shock today, as they had 2-0 lead against Wolverhampton. Raul Jimenez pulled one back in 75th minute, while Matt Doherty scored an eqaulizer header 2 minutes into the stoppage time, securing a replay for the Wolves.
