FA Cup, Premier League and more: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Millwall and Lincoln are in the mood for further upsets, José Mourinho has a tactical teaser at Chelsea and Rangers at risk of Old Firm derby embarrassment

The FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday is a fitting way for Neil Harris to celebrate two years in charge of the club he loves. Regardless of the result, the club have been upwardly mobile under Harris, the club’s all-time record goalscorer. Harris initially took caretaker charge on 10 March 2015 before assuming the full-time position a month later. Their start to this season was tricky – at the end of September they had 12 points from 10 games – but now Harris’s side are only six points off the automatic promotion places and travel to White Hart Lane on a 17-match unbeaten run. “It was about having a Millwall team,” the 39-year-old said this week of a club he felt had lost their identity. “That is not necessarily the best players – but ones who the fans could identify with. That is not football – it is effort, desire, running.” While the priority for the Lions is to find a passage back to the Championship, there is no reason Harris’s modern-day Millwall – who have already gobbled up and spat out Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester City in this competition – cannot upset another top-flight side.
