The Merseyside derby went to an extra replay played on 27 February; Kenny Dalglish resigned as Liverpool's manager between the two replays.[1] Because Nottingham Forest did not win their fourth round tie until 18 February, their fifth round match was not played until 25 February with a replay on 4 March. Similarly, Arsenal were late beating Leeds United in the previous round and so played Shrewsbury Town on 27 February.
