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

The match – which is just one of two FA Cup ties to take place today – will be held at the King Power Stadium and be broadcast live on the BBC.

The Foxes knocked out Championship side Sheffield United on this ground in round five, with Jamie Vardy netting the only goal of the game.

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.

Kick-off 4.30pm

The BBC will also air Southampton’s visit to Wigan from 1.15pm.
