Jose Mourinho has taken another swipe at Chelsea, admitting that he has been surprised by how much his former team have relied on defence and counter-attacks under Antonio Conte this season.

Chelsea will take on Mourinho's Manchester United at Stamford Bridge with a place in the FA Cup semi-finals at stake on Monday, and are chasing a double after building a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

I'm not surprised [by Chelsea's success]. I'm surprised with the way they play.

I'm surprised because I thought they were demanding a different kind of football.

I think they are very good defensively and I think they have fantastic players to be a counter-attack team and to kill opponents with three or four players.

Pep Guardiola claimed that Manchester City have had a harder road to the FA Cup semi-finals than most after watching his team dispatch Middlesbrough 2-0 at the Riverside Stadium.

Goals in each half from David Silva and Sergio Aguero wrapped up the win for an impressive City, who spurned numerous opportunities to make the scoreline more emphatic.

We're so happy to be through because to reach the semi-finals of this competition is so complicated.

We played all our games away - against three Premier League sides and one of the best in the Championship, so a big compliment to the team.

We produced a good performance today. We were there from the first minute. The first goal was important but it was down to how we approached the game.

Now we recover good to play another final on Wednesday.

Sutton captain Jamie Collins says he wants the National League side to draw Manchester United or Arsenal away in the FA Cup fifth round.

Collins converted a 53rd-minute penalty to send the National League side through to the last 16 of the competition for the first time in their history at the expense of Leeds United, prompting scenes of wild celebration and a pitch invasion at the final whistle.

I think when we saw their team sheet, especially at home, we always thought we had a chance.

I think there was only one or two that are regular first-team [players]. But at home, we fancy our chances against anyone.

It'll be a big upset out in the public but for us we knew we could do it.

It's a fantastic day for the club, all the lads are buzzing and you can see what it means to the fans.

I think we'd like one of the Premier League big boys now - Man United, Arsenal, someone like that, away.
