Liverpool is out of the F.A. Cup.

But after Thursday, seven of the Premier League's top 10 teams could be left standing in the quarterfinals.

People always talk about the magic of the F.A. Cup, where the minnows upset the league powers early in the tournament, much like the NCAA basketball tournament.

But that is only in the early rounds: same as the NCAA, people want to see the big boys battling it out at the end of the tournament.

Wednesday, Leicester City, Manchester City, and Tottenham will all look to move on it their quest for silverware this season. Look for all to win.
