FA Cup fifth round TV times confirmed as fixtures move to midweek

Eight of the fifth round FA Cup ties will be televised with Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all in action.

The games will be played midweek as opposed to the weekend as authorities deal with a fixture back log.

Several of country’s giants have been sent packing with Liverpool and Arsenal both exiting the competition in the last round.

United, Liverpool’s conquerers, will play West Ham at Old Trafford on February 9 in one of the ties of the round.

That comes after Burnley have kicked off the fixtures with a game against second tier Bournemouth earlier that day at Turf moor.

FA Cup holders Arsenal are out

City and Tottenham will both be in action a day later as they face Swansea and Everton respectively.

The top flight’s basement club Sheffield United host Championship side Bristol City.
