FA Cup Round 5: Everton, Bolton Advance; Norwich Upset By Leicester

Everton struck twice in the early stages of the first half to cruise to a 2-0 home win against Blackpool. Royston Drenthe got the start and rewarded David Moyes with an expertly taken finish in the very first minute, and then the Real Madrid outcast found Dennis Sracqualursi five minutes later with a corner kick to wrap up the match. Blackpool pushed hard to make it a real game, but couldn't even manage to get on the scoresheet. Kevin Phillips's missed penalty in second-half injury time didn't matter, but it would have been a nice consolation.

Elsewhere, Norwich City were upset by Leicester City at Carrow Road. The Foxes grabbed an early goal through Sean St. Ledger but the hosts fought back and won a dubious penalty when Mike Dean adjudged Kasper Schmeichel to have elbowed Elliott Bennett, a foul only Dean saw. Although the goalkeeper did well in saving the initial shot from Wes Hoolahan, the midfielder tucked in the rebound to bring the match up to level pegging. After the equaliser, the game looked there for the Canaries' taking. However, David Nugent gave them a shock, slicing through the Norwich defence and steering home in the 71st minute to get Leicester to the quarterfinals.

Millwall may have done a fantastic job against Southampton in the previous round, but they were no match for Bolton Wanderers. On-loan Ryo Miyaichi opened the scoring with a brilliant third-minute shot, and although the hosts were by and large able to keep the Trotters at arm's length, they didn't look much like scoring either. David N'gog sealed the 2-0 win in the second half with a nice long-range effort as Bolton and Owen Coyle advance to the quarterfinals.

Everton 2-0 Blackpool

Norwich City 1-2 Leicester City

Millwall 0-2 Bolton Wanderers
