Chelsea v Tottenham – FA Cup 2016/17 – Live TV Coverage on BBC One
Updated on Friday 21 April 2017 by @TVNewsroom

The 2016/17 FA Cup semi-finals take place this weekend (22-23rd April) with live TV coverage on the BBC and BT Sport.

The opening semi-final from Wembley Stadium sees Chelsea take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening, as the London rivals battle it out.

The Blues have a highly impressive recent record in this competition, having lifted the trophy five times in the last 10 years, while Spurs have not reached the final since they won the competition in 1991.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will draw some confidence from their 2-0 win when the sides met at White Hart Lane in the Premier League three months ago.

The last time these sides met in the FA Cup was at this stage in 2012 – Chelsea won that match 5-1 on the way to lifting the trophy. Tottenham’s last win over Chelsea in the FA Cup was a 3-2 victory in the sixth round in 1982.

Coverage begins at 4.50pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming via the BBC Sport website. Kick-off 5.15pm.

BT Sport will air the second semi-final on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal host Manchester City at Wembley Stadium. Coverage starts at 2.30pm on BT Sport 1. Kick-off 3.00pm.
