Non-league duo Lincoln City and Sutton United both caused big upsets to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup at the weekend.

Danny Cowley’s Lincoln, who got the better of Championship side Ipswich in round three, came from behind to defeat second tier leaders Brighton 3-1 at Sincil Bank, with goals from Alan Power and Theo Robinson, as well as an own goal from Fikayo Tomori, securing a memorable win for the Imps.

They are joined in the last 16 by fellow National League outfit Sutton, who avenged an FA Cup fourth round defeat to Leeds United back in 1970 with a wonderful 1-0 success over Garry Monk’s men on Sunday.

It’s not just these two that cause big upsets though, as Oxford United comfortably swept aside Championship high-flyers Newcastle 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium, while there were excellent victories for Millwall and Fulham on Sunday, beating Premier League duo Watford and Hull respectively.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool suffered a third successive defeat by going down 2-1 at home to Wolves on Saturday, but the other five of the Premier League’s top six made it through to round five, with only Tottenham coming close to an upset as they needed a last-gasp Son Heung-min goal to edge past League Two outfit Wycombe 4-3 at White Hart Lane.

So, in what was a thrilling weekend of cup football, many took to social media to express their views on the matches, and unsurprisingly it was Lincoln and Sutton who came in for the greatest credit on Twitter…

While Liverpool and Leeds fans reacted with disappointment as their side’s exited the competition with laboured displays against Wolves and Sutton respectively…

Elsewhere, Oxford caused a big upset by knocking out Newcastle, with U’s fans thrilled but Magpies supporters frustrated after a 3-0 win for Michael Appleton’s men…

While on Sunday, League One side Millwall beat Walter Mazzarri’s Watford to the delight of many Lions supporters…
