Ghana defender Jeffrey Schlupp believes Crystal Palace can all the way to clinch the Emirates FA Cup after booking a place in the quarter-finals.

The Eagles advanced to the quarter-finals stage of the FA Cup on Sunday after inflicting a 2-0 defeat on Doncaster Rovers on Sunday.

Schlupp fetched the opener for Palace with a brilliant goal only eight minutes into the game before Max Meyer sealed the win from close range just before half-time after clever play from Luka Milivojevic and Andros Townsend.

And with victory taking Palace one step closer to Wembley, Schlupp allowed himself a positive glance forward after the clash's conclusion, suggesting that with a good draw his side can look to the iconic archway of north-west London.

"We obviously knew if we got past this round, we'd be in a good position," he said. "Of course this is a special tournament and hopefully with the luck of the draw we might get a 'lesser' team, if that's what you want to call it, to have a better chance of getting through. But obviously any trip to Wembley is special and hopefully we can do that."
