This is a selection of the best jokes from another day of upsets in the FA Cup after a series of entertaining fifth round fixtures took place on Saturday afternoon.

Non-league Lincoln and League One Millwall both secured places in the quarter-finals of the competition thanks to last-minute winners against Premier League opposition, Burnley and the beleaguered Leicester respectively.

Another League One side, Oxford United were eventually overcome by Premier League Middlesbrough in a five-goal thriller at the Riverside.

And Championship promotion-chasers Huddersfield forced a replay with Manchester City at the Etihad after holding Pep Guardiola’s side to a 0-0 draw.

Chelsea also won at Wolves but that didn’t turn out to be very funny at all.

These were the best of the jokes from a day of upsets in the FA Cup fifth round:

Feel sorry for Lincoln, they've come so far in the FA Cup and now they're heading to a Stadium with wooden seats, you don't deserve this

The 'Millwall away' tweets I've seen from Leicester. Mate, you're walking through a cage to get into a ground, not doing a tour of Afghan.

Town fans might not like it, but their club has just been called "tiny Huddersfield" on a Romanian sports channel hihi 😄

Lincoln's Matt Rhead could possibly eat @Joey7Barton before the 90 minutes is up.

Burnley v Lincoln perhaps best summed up by this picture. All 20 outfield players are hidden by the grey line. pic.twitter.com/qjd31AsNJE

FT: Burnley 0 – 1 Lincoln

Lincoln City beat Burnley
Millwall beat Leicester
Huddersfield hold City

At this rate Arsenal might upset Sutton.

Best thing about the millwall pitch invasion is the grandma and grandson mugging off the Leicester fans. pic.twitter.com/qdBCzmihX8

Only 6 teams have stopped Man City from scoring this season: Barcelona, Man Utd, Everton, Spurs, Liverpool and Huddersfield reserves #htafc

The Cup hasn't lost its magic. Some of those Lincoln fans will have dreamt of this day ever since they began supporting the club in round 4.

Millwall won by a small margin and I understand Leicester won the popular vote, so a march is being organized to change today's result.

Can't believe Clive Sinclair called us "Oxford City" on Match Of The Day.

Nobody is saying women shouldn't be commentators. Just the Middlesbrough v Oxford woman shouldn't be a commentator #MOTD
