Hicks was able to retreat safely to the touchline without being harmed, but the club have vowed to deal with the pitch invader with “zero tolerance”.

Full time: Las Palmas 1-2 Real Madrid

Real Madrid return to the top of La Liga but were given a scare by mid-table Las Palmas, who took a second-half lead through Javi Muñoz. Vinícius Júnior got the visitors level, before Aurélien Tchouaméni got the winner in the 84th minute.

Who’s in the FA Cup fifth round? Luton, Leicester and Brighton join Bournemouth, non-league Maidstone and holders Manchester City in the draw. Leeds and Plymouth, like Bristol City/Forest, Chelsea/Villa and Coventry/Sheffield Wed, will require a replay.

In the Championship, it’s finished Millwall 1-1 Preston, while Sunderland are back to within touching distance of the playoffs after a 3-1 home win over Stoke.

In League One, Exeter have ended Barnsley’s unbeaten run, Portsmouth have held on at Port Vale, and Bolton have thrashed Carlisle 4-1 to climb above Peterborough, who couldn’t find a winner at Lincoln. In League Two, high-flying Mansfield, down to 10 men, have conceded a late goal at Wimbledon.

Full time: Everton 1-2 Luton Town

It’s all over at Goodison Park, and Luton have earned a late win that was probably deserved, on the balance of play. They’re into the last 16 for just the second time since the 2012-13 season – when they got to the fifth round as a non-league team.

GOAL!!! Everton 1-2 Luton (Woodrow 96′)

Wow. Everton are going out of the FA Cup, as Cauley Woodrow taps home from a corner to grab a last-gasp victory for Luton!

Full time: Leeds 1-1 Plymouth

Both sides spurn late chances to grab victory, so we head to Home Park for a replay. Jaidon Anthony put Leeds in front, but Adam Randell’s leveller keeps Argyle in the Cup.

Full time: Leicester 3-0 Birmingham

After a poor first half, Enzo Maresca made changes and Leicester eased to victory through goals from Jamie Vardy, Yunus Akgun and Dennis Praet. They’re in the hat for Sunday’s fifth-round draw.

Tempers boiling over at Goodison Park, Burke and Patterson jostling in the time-honoured fashion as we enter added time. Heading for a replay there, while Plymouth are minutes away from forcing Leeds to take a trip to Home Park.

League One leaders Portsmouth strike late at Port Vale, through Colby Bishop’s penalty – and look to have denied Bolton top spot. Wycombe are level at home to Fleetwood, and there’s a turnaround at the DW Stadium too – Stevenage now lead Wigan 3-2.

GOAL! Leicester 3-0 Birmingham (Praet 88′)

A first goal in more than a year for Dennis Praet, who strokes the ball home to make victory absolutely certain for Leicester.

Real Madrid are level at Las Palmas, Vinícius Júnior on the scoresheet – but Carlo Ancelotti will want a winner, with 20-odd minutes left to play.

In Scotland, Celtic still lead Ross County by a single goal after Luis Palma missed a penalty twice, Hearts are two up at home to Aberdeen, and Hibs have levelled against 10-man Kilmarnock. Dundee are also a man down … but still 4-1 up at bottom club Livingston.

Jack Harrison goes close with an acrobatic effort as Everton aim to grab a winner and cross the replay off their fixture list. Leeds also want to get the job done, but can’t find a way past Hazard in the Plymouth goal.

In the Bundesliga, Harry Kane got what proved to be the winner as Bayern Munich won 3-2 at Augsburg, while Denis Undav’s hat-trick earned Stuttgart a 5-2 home win over Leipzig. Elsewhere, it finished Werder Bremen 3-1 Freiburg, Hoffenheim 1-1 Heidenheim anad Wolfsburg 1-1 Köln.

At Elland Road, Leeds have sent on Patrick Bamford – but he is denied by Conor Hazard as Plymouth stay level! Derby have scored another very nice goal, and now lead Cheltenham 2-1, some good vibes returning to Pride Park.

Stoke have pulled one back at the Stadium of Light through Jenson Seelt’s own goal. “As a friend just texted me, Stoke are so terrible they can’t even score their own goals,” sighs Joshua Reynolds. “It’s a grim time for the Potters.”

GOAL! Sheffield United 2-4 Brighton (Pedro 67′)

João Pedro fires home from Van Hecke’s pass to complete his hat-trick, and surely Brighton are through now. Then again, they were 2-0 up in the first half, in a game that is running a little behind the other three.

A big goal in La Liga: Javi Muñoz has put Las Palmas in front at home to Real Madrid, finishing a fine counter to put the visitors under serious pressure.

GOAL! Leeds 1-1 Plymouth (Randell 73′)

Plymouth are level at Elland Road, Adam Randell finishing off a devastating break after good work from substitutes Matt Butcher and Mustapha Bundu.

GOAL! Leicester 2-0 Birmingham (Akgun 72′)

The 2021 Cup winners are heading for the fifth round. It’s Yunus Akgun who gets the goal, the Turkish winger finishing in style to double the hosts’ lead!

Another goalline clearance, this one at Goodison Park as Nathan Patterson denies Carlton Morris what looked a certain goal. Elsewhere, Wycombe have one back at home to Fleetwood, and Pierre Ekwah has put Sunderland 3-0 up on Stoke.

Plymouth go close! They’ve been on the back foot for long spells, but Argyle almost equalise as Morgan Whittaker lifts the ball over Illan Meslier – but Sam Byram clears off the line.

Leicester made three changes at half-time – James Justin, Ricardo Pereira and Kasey McAteer all coming on – and are much improved in the second half. Tony Mowbray decides to do the same with his Birmingham team, throwing on Scott Hogan, Tyler Roberts and Oliver Burke – just as Vardy heads off, replaced by Tom Cannon.

In League One, Charlton – who have been linked with Nathan Jones this week – are a goal down at Blackpool. Paul Hurst is back in the hot seat at Shrewsbury, and his side are 1-0 up at Northampton. Fleetwood, without a win since 11 November, are two goals up but a man down at Wycombe.

GOAL! Sheffield Utd 2-3 Brighton (Pedro pen 52′)

It’s a barn burner at Bramall Lane, where João Pedro has converted a second penalty to put Brighton back in front. The spot-kick was given for a Bogle handball which was then subject of a long VAR check, as if you had to ask.

Derby are level at home to Cheltenham with a tidy training-ground routine from a free kick. In Scotland, Kilmarnock lead Hibernian 2-0, Matty Kennedy getting the hosts’ second goal.

GOAL! Everton 1-1 Luton (Harrison 55′)

Relief around Goodison as Jack Harrison gets them level, his hopeful shot slipping through Tim Krul’s hands to gift Everton an equaliser!

Hey, what’s Phil Brown up to these days? He’s the new manager at Kidderminster, and it’s going well – the National League strugglers are a goal up at Dagenham & Redbridge!

Jamie Vardy thinks he’s doubled his tally, and Leicester’s lead, at home to Birmingham – but it’s ruled out for a very tight offside. No VAR to help Vardy out at the King Power, either. Leeds are still on top against Plymouth at Elland Road, but haven’t been able to add to Jaidon Anthony’s opener yet.

Everton still not clicking, with Jack Harrison and Dwight McNeil struggling to get into the game from out wide. Just one shot on target for the hosts, and Luton still a goal to the good.

Derby are in a spot of bother at home to Cheltenham, going 1-0 down to continue a worrying blip. Paul Warne’s side were held at Lincoln last week, then lost 1-0 at Reading on Tuesday. Lincoln are frustrating another promotion-chasing side today, holding Peterborough to a goalless draw as it stands.

Sunderland double their lead at home to Stoke, Abdoullah Ba on target to make Michael Beale (slightly) more popular on Wearside. In League Two, Stockport are having fun at Doncaster – the leaders are 4-0 up early in the second half.

GOAL! Sheffield Utd 2-2 Brighton (Osula 45+8′)

Will Osula, who has had an excellent first half, brings Sheffield United level on the stroke of half-time with a header into the far corner! There’s another VAR check, but this time Igor is playing him on. Brighton need to work on that offside trap.

Tors galore in the Bundesliga, where Harry Kane has just put Bayern Munich 3-1 up at Augsburg and Stuttgart lead Leipzig 4-2, Denis Undav on target twice for the hosts.

Robbie Williams is watching on at Port Vale, where the hosts are goalless at home to League One leaders Portsmouth. At Forest Green, the Steve Cotterill era is under way and it’s not going well – Accrington lead 1-0 at the New Lawn.

GOAL! Sheffield Utd 1-2 Brighton (Hamer 44′)

Sheffield United pull one back through Gustavo Hamer, the goal awarded after a lengthy VAR check – Van Hecke was just about playing the midfielder on.

Some breathing space for Michael Beale, as Mason Burstow fires Sunderland in front at home to Stoke. Birmingham are making in-roads at the King Power – Jay Stansfield has hit the post for the visitors, with a much-changed Leicester way off their fluent best.
