The FA Cup 1994-95 was the 114th staging of the world's oldest cup competition, the Football Association Cup or FA Cup. The competition was won by Everton, with a shock victory over Manchester United, who were strong favourites to add to the previous year's trophy but were beaten 1-0.

Everton's Joe Royle would be the last English-born manager to lift the FA Cup until Harry Redknapp managed Portsmouth to the 2008 victory.

Sixth round

The sixth round, or quarter-final, ties were scheduled for the weekend of 11 March. The Crystal Palace–Wolverhampton Wanderers match went to a replay 11 days later.

Tottenham Hotspur progressed to the semi-finals of a competition that they had to appeal to compete in after being banned for financial irregularities, and their quarter-final victory over Liverpool ended their opposition's hopes of an FA Cup/League Cup double.

Wolverhampton Wanderers, the last non-Premiership side in the competition, lost 4-1 at home to Crystal Palace in a replay after a 1-1 draw in the first game.

QPR's hopes of instant success under new player-manager Ray Wilkins were ended when they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United, one of his former clubs.



Manchester United, also chasing the Premier League title, needed a replay to see off a Crystal Palace side who were battling against relegation.

Everton, meanwhile, blew apart a Tottenham side who had started the season banned from the competition for financial irregularities until an appeal saw them reinstated.
