People talk about the "Magic of the F.A. Cup" often in England.

This year, the only magic involved was done by the heavyweights, as they made the lower league clubs disappear.

The quarterfinals are set after Wednesday's draw, and all seven teams that are through are Premier League sides. Thursday, Manchester United can make it eight for eight, if the Red Devils can hold off Wayne Rooney's Derby County.

All the ties should be good, but the Arsenal/Sheffield United contest, as well as Leicester City/Chelsea, look to be equally mouthwatering.

Defending champion Manchester City, which just about got past Sheffield Wednesday, will hit the road once again, to take on Newcastle United.

Manchester City is the heavy favorite to win the title.
