FA Cup: Swansea wins 8-1, Huddersfield sets up Man U match

Notts County's Cumbrian keeper Adam Collin

Improving Swansea avoided an FA Cup shock in ruthless fashion after taking their place in the fifth round by dispatching League Two high-flyers Notts County 8-1 at Liberty Stadium.

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan admitted his side could not live with Swansea's Premier League class.

Tammy Abraham scored his first goal since October to put the dominant hosts ahead and 90 seconds later his through ball set up Nathan Dyer to double their lead.

There was, though, to be no fairytale comeback for the League Two promotion chasers, as Abraham scored again in first-half stoppage time. Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and debutant Daniel James added more goals after halftime to complete Swansea's biggest FA Cup win.

Carvalhal's departure on Christmas Eve opened the door for a jump into the Premier League with Swansea and the Portuguese has since resurrected the dying Swans, lifting them out of the bottom three thanks to wins over Liverpool and Arsenal.

"It's important if it's the best result in the (club's) history, but the most important thing is the attitude of the players that made all the difference", Carvalhal said.

The country is a major source of India's energy requirement as it accounts for nearly one-fifth of India's crude oil requirement. Saudi Arabia is the fourth largest trading partner for India with bilateral trade exceeding $25 billion in 2016-17.

"I don't think they deserved to be 8-1, but it is one of those games where their finishing was Premier League standard", the former West Ham United captain told BBC Sport.

Huddersfield will play Manchester United having beaten Birmingham 4-1 after extra time at St Andrews.

Che Adams had fired the Championship side ahead before Town levelled through Marc Roberts' scrappy own goal.

Steve Mounie headed Huddersfield in front four minutes into extra time.

Tottenham, meanwhile, will travel to Rochdale in the fifth round should they beat Newport County in Wednesday's replay after the League One side dumped Millwall out of the competition.

With Millwall fielding a weakened team, Ian Henderson ignored the awful condition of the Spotland pitch to settle a scrappy game when he slotted home from close range after 53 minutes.
