FA Cup: The shock stats of the weekend
Whilst it may often lack the quality we’ve become accustomed to in the Premier League, nothing quite beats an FA Cup weekend during the winter months of the season.
And the Fourth Round of the 2016/17 competition certainly delivered; non-leaguers Sutton United and Lincoln City claimed giant-killings over Championship outfits Leeds and Brighton respectively, whilst Millwall bagged a 1-0 win over Watford, Wolves unexpectedly eliminated an out-of-sorts Liverpool and Wycombe Wanderers took Tottenham close, eventually losing 4-3 at White Hart Lane.
Indeed, the FA Cup has clearly lost the prestige of yesteryear, but it still guarantees shock results and fantastic days out for the fans of the so-called lesser sides. Accordingly, its also a fantastic breeding ground for statistical gems; so what better way to relive the weekend’s FA Cup action than via some of the numerical anomalies to emerge from it?
With that in mind, Football FanCast takes a look at the most shocking stats of the weekend.
