FA Cup 2016/17 Quarter Finals – Live TV Coverage on BBC, BT Sport

The quarter finals of FA Cup 2016/17 take place this weekend with live TV coverage on the BBC and BT Sport.

Coverage gets under way on Saturday afternoon with Manchester City’s visit to Middlesbrough. The match takes place at the Riverside Stadium and will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 11.45am.

Boro held City to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League in November 2016. Kick-off 12.15pm

BT Sport will also air the second FA Cup tie of the weekend as Arsenal host non-league Lincoln City at the Emirates Stadium.

With the Gunners nearing crisis point, under-pressure Arsene Wenger will be keen to avoid a huge upset.

Coverage starts at 5.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App. Kick-off 5.30pm.

Just one game will take place on Sunday afternoon as Tottenham Hotspur host League One’s Millwall at White Hart Lane.

This is the first meeting between these sides since April 1990 in the old First Division, when Gary Lineker scored the only goal to give Tottenham the win.

Spurs hold a commanding record against the Lions, having not lost to them since 1939, and will come into this game as heavy favourites.

Millwall have already eliminated three Premier League sides in Bournemouth, Watford and reigning champions Leicester City to reach this stage, however, so Mauricio Pochettino will not take Neil Harris’s side lightly.

Gary Lineker will be live on BBC One and BBC One HD from 1.30pm. Commentary comes from Steve Wilson. Kick-off 2.00pm.

The final contest of the weekend comes from Stamford Bridge on Monday evening as the league leaders host Manchester United.

Antonio Conte’s side are flying high in the league at present, and are firm favourites to lift the trophy at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils are the current holders of the FA Cup and are still mathematically in the domestic title hunt, but the Portuguese will see this competition as a far more likely opportunity of silverware, having already clinched the EFL Cup with a 3-2 victory over Southampton at Wembley.

The Blues ran out 4-0 winners the last time the sides met in the league back in October, thanks to goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante.

Coverage starts at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD. Kick-off 7.45pm.
