FA Cup 2017/18 – Third Round Replays – Live on BT Sport, BBC One
Updated on Tuesday 9 January 2018 by @TVNewsroom

The FA, BBC and BT Sport have announced the two FA Cup third round replays which will air on live TV.

There’s a total of eight replays all together. The BBC will show Chelsea v Norwich from Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 17th January from 7.45pm on BBC One.

BT Sport will air Fleetwood Town’s visit to Leicester City on Tuesday 16 January from 7.45pm.

Video assistant referees (VAR) will be in operation for the Chelsea v Norwich game.

VAR – first used in the FA Cup during Brighton’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday night – will be used for clear and obvious errors, or serious missed incidents, relating to specific incidents in three ‘game changing’ situations – goals, penalty/no penalty decisions and straight red cards, plus mistaken identity for red or yellow cards.

The VAR automatically checks every such incident and if a clear and obvious error has occurred the referee is informed; the referee can then confirm or change the original decision based on the information from the VAR, or the referee looks at a replay on the side of the pitch. The original decision is only changed if it was clearly and obviously wrong.
