FA Cup play resumes in England on Saturday, as a number of Premier League powers look to avoid the upset bug en route to the quarterfinals.

Regardless of whether the flu-stricken Landon Donovan plays, Everton will look to send the on-loan American out on a high note by taking care of League Championship side Blackpool in their fifth-round cup clash at Goodison Park. Chelsea and manager Andre Villas-Boas have come under fire lately, but they can keep their quest for silverware alive with a win over Jonathan Spector's Birmingham City.

Tim Ream eyes his debut with Bolton when the Trotters take on Millwall, while another English club who was interested in his services, Arsenal, meets Sunderland in the only cup meeting of top-flight clubs.

Outside of England, Charlie Davies has been included in the matchday 18 for Sochaux again as the club looks to climb out of the Ligue 1 cellar against Auxerre; Juventus has its eye on reclaiming first place in Serie A when it hosts Catania; and Santos Laguna and Monterrey clash in a meeting of two of Mexico's top teams.
