FA Cup team of the round dominated by Wolves, Man United, Newcastle, Blackburn and Bournemouth

Here’s how the Emirates FA Cup team of the week shapes up for the fixtures played from January 25 to January 29.

Wolves claimed the bragging rights in the Black Country Derby as they beat West Brom 2-0 at The Hawthorn's in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Pedro Neto and Matheus Cunha were on target as Gary O'Neil's side showed their Premier League class by winning for the first time in 27-years on West Brom soil. It was a fairly one-sided affair with West Brom rarely troubling Jose Sa's goal.

The fourth round action got underway on Thursday night when AFC Bournemouth thrashed Welsh side Swansea City. The Cherries raced in to a five-goal lead at the break thanks to goals from Lloyd Kelly, Alex Scott, Luis Sinisterra, David Brooks and Domic Solanke. Several matches took place on Friday night but it wasn't an evening for goals with only Coventry City and Sheffield Wednesday netting in a 1-1 draw, as well as Man City beating Spurs 1-0. Chelsea versus Aston Villa finished goalless as did Chelsea and Nottingham Forest.

Thankfully the goals came on Saturday with Maidstone United causing the upset of the round as they beat Championship promotion hopefuls Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Newcastle United beat Fulham 2-0, Brighton won 5-2 against Sheffield United, as well as Luton Town knocking out Everton with a 2-1 win. Leeds United and Plymouth Argyle went to a replay after a 1-1 draw whilst Birmingham City were thrashed 3-0 by Leicester City. In Sunday's games, Watford drew 1-1 with Southampton, Liverpool won 5-2 against Norwich City and Man United avoided an upset as they beat Newport County 4-2.

A range of teams were in action and several players stood out on a weekend where most of England was watching them. Thankfully for us, though, WhoScored’s rating system does the hard yards for us. With that in mind, look the pages to see the best performers from the weekend just gone.
