Good morning, Kickabout fans.
We've got a packed show
for you today with loads of action
to catch up on from the footy
world this week.
From FA Cup replays to shocking own
goals and more managerial sackings,
plus all of this top stuff coming up
on today's show.
Tyler meets the twins taking
the footballing world by storm -
Fulham wonder kids Ryan and Steven
We follow the draw for the next
round of the Women's FA Cup and chat
to England and Liverpool goalkeeper
And there's the usual fantastic
footy photos and videos
from you lot at home.
and fantastic skills -
I can't wait to see that lot!
First up, though, let's check out
this week's headline hitters.
You might see this and
think, "What a goal!"
But it's actually hit
the back of its own net!
Defender Yaser Abdullah Al Juneibi
scored in the Arabian Gulf League
on Saturday but unfortunately
it was a cracking own goal.
Leeds - ahem - sacked manager
Thomas Christiansen last Sunday
after only eight months in charge
and, just days later,
confirmed Paul Heckingbottom
as their new manager,
less than a week after he'd signed
a new contract with Barnsley!
And finally, FA Cup replays took
place this week and what a goal-fest
it turned out to be!
Oh, it's a lovely goal!
Swansea put a whopping
eight past Notts County!
Huddersfield fought back from behind
to beat Birmingham 4-1 in extra
time, while Spurs cruised to victory
over League 2 Newport County.
They'll face Rochdale in the next
round, who edged past Millwall
1-0 in their replay.
And they weren't the only clubs
in FA Cup action recently,
as women's teams played,
too, last weekend.
They were fighting for a place
in the fifth round, and Kickabout
were there exclusively for the draw
to find out first-hand who each
team will be up against.
The Women's FA Cup is the top cup
competition in women's
football in England,
and the season is well underway.
There's been some brilliant games
so far and I'm here at a school
Liverpool today for the draw
for the fifth round.
In the previous round, last year's
winners Man City beat Brighton 2-0,
whilst Everton had a comfortable 3-1
win against Bristol City.
Liverpool thrashed Watford 5-0,
but Chelsea doubled that,
would you believe, by putting ten
past the London Bees!
It looks like the draw for the next
round is about to start,
so I'd better go and take my spot.
14 is Arsenal.
Number 15, Chelsea.
Number 8, Chichester City against...
So, there we have it,
the fifth round draw complete.
Liverpool travel to Chichester City
whilst Everton take on Lewes.
Free-scoring Chelsea host
Doncaster Rovers Belles,
but the pick of the ties has to be
the holders Man City
against Birmingham in a repeat
of last season's final.
Look who I'm joined by!
It is England and Liverpool
goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain,
who - you've just found out -
you've drawn Chichester.
It's not a bad draw for us.
Once you get to this stage,
there's only 16 teams
left in the competition.
There's not an easy game,
so every game's going to be
difficult and every team has got
to put in a good performance to get
through to the last eight.
Man City, Chelsea are
unbeaten pretty much
at the top of the league.
So they'll be favourites, probably,
to win the competition,
but everyone at the moment
could beat each other on any
occasion, so I don't think it'd be
right to rule anyone out
at the moment.
How do you feel the women's game has
progressed over the last few years?
Oh, I think it's been fantastic.
I mean, lots more people are more
interested, they're more aware.
It's great that it's
on TV more and obviously
Match Of The Day Kickabout,
as well, it's fantastic that
you're showing the draw
and giving young girls,
as well as boys, an insight
that they can go and they can be
professional female footballers.
So, we've come outside straight off
the back of the draw, and look -
all the girls are playing football.
Guys, what did you think
of the draw this morning?
It was good.
I would have liked a derby.
Liverpool have drawn Chichester.
Is that a good fixture?
Yeah, because they won 5-0.
They won 5-0 already, so who knows,
they might be able to do it again.
The Everton players were saying it's
really cool cos we see
lots of girls' football
on television now.
What's it like for you
girls playing football?
Because it's not only boys
that can play football.
Some girls can play
better than boys.
Yeah, they can.
My brother goes, like,
to football coaches nearly every day
so I go with him most of the time.
I normally score goals,
but they don't!
So, there we have it.
We have the fixtures for the fifth
round of the women's FA Cup
and a few tips from one of the best
goalkeepers in the women's game.
And I cannot wait
for the next round.
And neither can this lot!
Thanks, Lauren, and over
in the Premier League,
there's plenty of games to look
forward to this weekend.
Virgil van Dijk returns
to his former club as
Liverpool play Southampton.
Before that, Newcastle welcome
Man United to Saint James's Park.
But the big game has to be
today's early kick-off
between Tottenham and Arsenal.
Keep watching to see some cracking
previous north London derby goals
at the end of today's show.
And let's not forget
the late kick-off between
Man City and Leicester -
former champions against current
table-toppers and the subject
of this week's Top Tekkers vote.
We asked you to choose between these
two, so who did you want to see?
Let's find out.
Sterling, and still going.
Manchester City will break here.
Sterling goes left-hand side.
He goes for gold, he gets it!
Manchester City are home and hosed.
Headed in by Raheem Sterling!
Sterling still going.
The composure of a
And scored by Sterling!
Looking ahead to next weekend,
it's FA Cup time again and there's
some great ties to look forward to,
the standout being the repeat
of 2013 final between Premier League
leaders Man City and League
1 table-toppers Wigan.
And we're sticking with FA
Cup finals, in fact,
for next week's Top Tekkers vote.
We want you to choose between these
two FA Cup legends who have both
bagged winners in the final.
Steven Gerrard or Didier Drogba.

MUSIC: Charlemagne by Blossoms.
First up, here's Ethan
with a tasty free kick
for Stockport Football Academy that
actually breaks the net!
Now here's Elliott scoring
for Worthing and that is a worthy
Worthing goal indeed,
Harry now with a few cheeky skills.
Some might call it showboating -
I call it very, very good.
Thank you, Harry.
Now here's Isaac and it's
a classic roll into the net
for Kings Langley Under-7 Eagles.
They won 6-5 thanks
to Isaac's hat-trick.
And what about this from Caspar?
A free kick for Didsbury Juniors.
And look at the keeper's
reaction - he's gutted!
And sticking with super
skilful players, these two
are still just teenagers,
but they're already lighting
up the Championship.
And Kickabout had an exclusive
chat with them recently
in the build-up to the first-ever
National Schools Football Week
in association with
the PlayStation Schools Cup.
I'm here at this school
in Fulham to chat to a very
special pair of brothers.
Ryan and Steven Sessegnon are twins.
They both play for England
in the under-19s and they
both play for Fulham.
Sessegnon makes it three for Fulham.
But their story started right here.
This is the school they attended
when they were children and,
while here, they were on the team
that won the PlayStation Cup,
setting them on their
So how amazing has it been,
meeting Ryan and Steven today?
Very good because you can learn
from them and see what they've done.
And what advice did
they give you earlier?
Yeah, I asked them what it was like
to play in the PlayStation Cup.
They told me to work hard
and that'll get you as far
as possible and then you just do
what you can.
Header on the back post!
Gets his goal, Ryan
Sessegnon, doesn't he?
What was it like,
meeting Ryan and Steven?
It was fun.
It was good to have a kickabout
with them, as well.
It was amazing.
The way they described how it went
through and how they play and I've
been watching them on TV
and it was really good.
Do you have any brothers or sisters?
I have two sisters.
Do you get along?
Can you ever imagine playing
on the same team as them?
My older sister, she's
well good at football.
I do have a brother.
It'd be an amazing feeling,
passing the ball to them,
just enjoying ourselves and playing.
So what's it like participating
in the PlayStation Cup?
It's very interesting
because there's a big final
at the end and you get to play
in a big stadium
if you make it there.
I just want to win it for my school
and just make them feel proud.
Chance here for Ryan Sessegnon
to add an eighth, and he has done.
Ryan Sessegnon, the scorer -
it's now 8-0 to Coombe Boys' School.
Ryan, Steven, how does it feel to be
back at your old stomping ground?
It feels great, you know?
I had some great times
in this corridor.
Brings back a lot of memories.
The kids that are out here today,
a lot of them are going to be
aspiring footballers sitting there,
looking up to you guys.
How does it feel to be that role
model in their lives?
Yeah, I think it's good
to be a figure for young
people to look up to.
When you're young, you need
that person to inspire
you to good things.
And Ryan Sessegnon scores
against Cardiff City again.
So, when you were back here,
obviously you took part
in the PlayStation Cup and won that.
And there it is.
PlayStation Under-15 Open Schools'
Cup final winners are
Coombe Boys' School.
How pivotal would you say
that was to where you got today?
At the time, yeah.
The first time a school won,
so to be part of that
team, it was good.
Who was stricter -
your PE teacher back
here or the manager at Fulham?
100%, our PE teacher, yeah.
He just likes to shout!
He just likes to shout?
I've got my brother at home and me
and him do not get on, all right?
So what's it like playing
on the same team?
Always support, always support.
Never let the other one down
and if one's pushing,
the other's got to push with him,
sort of mentally.
To be doing that on a first-team
level, it's even better.
If you were to sort of sum
up your top tips for getting
to this level of football,
what would they be?
First of all, enjoy.
Enjoy what you do and work hard.
Enjoyment's a big thing.
You've got to enjoy it
while doing your best.
It really will pay off
if you have fun and work hard.
All right, boys, it's been
wicked talking to you.
Cheers for coming on the show.
Just 17 and already
And it might not be long before
we see some of you lot at home
lighting up the professional scene,
too, if the pictures you send
in with your achievements
are anything to go by.
Frank won Man of the Match
and got his boot signed
by Pompey's Conor Chaplin
all on the same day!
Finn and Zack met their favourite
player, Riyad Mahrez,
during Zack's first ever game,
which was watching
Leicester take on Watford.
Here's massive Everton fan Blake
at Goodison Park with his friends,
where they got the chance to go
on the pitch at half-time to meet
some Toffees legends.
Chelsea fan Jessica enjoyed her
first ever game at Stamford Bridge,
watching the Blues take on Newcastle
in the FA Cup.
And happy birthday for
earlier this month, Jessica!
And finally, check out Thomas
with his Man of the Match trophy
for Redgate Rovers Yellows Under-7s.
He's a huge Liverpool fan and his
favourite player is Mo Salah.
Sounds like you're a Mo
in the making with performances
like that, Thomas!
And we couldn't talk footy
pictures without quickly
mentioning this story.
Ten-year-old Michael flew
all the way from Trinidad to London
for his birthday to see his idol
play for the first time -
Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois.
He held up this fantastic banner
at the game and - guess what?
- it worked and he met
his footballing hero!
Can I just say...
It was my birthday earlier this
week, so Pontus Jansson,
if you're watching and fancy
a birthday kickabout,
that would be a perfect pressie!
That's it for this week.
But before we go, with the North
London derby just hours away,
I'll leave you lot with a look back
at some of the best goals
from previous encounters.
MUSIC: Take The World
(Let's Go) by The Phantoms.
Always intense and supercharged.
Only a win will do today.
Arsenal lead, what a goal!
Oh, it's in!
What a finish that is!
Brilliant goal from Aaron Ramsey!
He's won it!
This is Roy of the Rovers stuff!
