Leicester City host Chelsea in the quarter finals of FA Cup 2017/18 this afternoon.

Antonio Conte’s Blues also faced second-tier opposition in Hull City, comprehensively defeating the Tigers 4-0 at Stamford Bridge thanks to a Willian brace and strikes from Pedro and Olivier Giroud, with all four goals coming before half-time.

Gary Lineker will be live on BBC One and BBC One HD from 4.05pm, where he will be joined in the studio by Alan Shearer, former Arsenal striker Ian Wright and former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Match commentary comes from Guy Mowbray.
