FA Cup 2016/17 – Fifth Round – Live TV Coverage on BBC, BT Sport
Updated on Friday 17 February 2017 by @TVNewsroom

The fifth round of FA Cup 2016/17 takes place this weekend with live TV coverage on the BBC and BT Sport.

The action gets underway on Saturday afternoon as non-league Lincoln City travel to Turf Moor to face Premier League side Burnley.

Their last encounter was a 1-1 draw in the third tier in 1999. Three of the last four meetings in all competitions have been 1-1 draws.

Burnley, however, have won all three FA Cup meetings since World War II, although two went to replays.

Coverage starts at 12.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App. Kick-off 12.30pm.

BT Sport will also air the second television tie on Saturday evening as Wolves host the current Premier League leaders Chelsea at Molineux.

This is the fourth FA Cup tie between Wolves and Chelsea, the last coming in 1994 when the Blues won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. The other two fixtures have seen Wolves play at home, losing in 1911 but winning in 1928.

Coverage starts at 5.00pm on BT Sport 2 and on BT Sport 4K UHD. Kick-off 5.30pm

Sunday afternoon sees Fulham host Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage, as the teams battle for a place in the last eight.

The Cottagers will be full of optimism having vanquished Premier League side Hull City here in the previous round, in what turned out to be a comfortable 4-1 victory, while Spurs will be on their guard having almost suffered a shock defeat at home to Wycombe Wanderers last time out.

This contest will be shown live on BBC One and BBC One HD from 1.40pm. Kick-off 2.00pm

Manchester United travel to Blackburn on Sunday evening. These sides last met in the FA Cup in 1984/85, with United winning 2-0 in Round 5 with goals from Gordon Strachan and Paul McGrath.

United have won both of their FA Cup ties this season by a 4-0 scoreline against Championship teams Reading and Wigan.

Coverage begins at 3.45pm on BT Sport 2. Kick-off 4.00pm

The final fifth round tie takes place on Monday evening – live on BBC One – as non-league side Sutton United host Arsenal at the Gander Green Lane.

Sutton have already defeated three Football League teams to reach this stage, with their scalp of Championship high-flyers Leeds United in round four causing the biggest stir.

Arsene Wenger will be wary of taking Sutton lightly, and may go against his usual cup policy of blooding the young players, with the artificial turf at the Borough Sports Ground adding an extra layer of unpredictability to the contest.

Coverage begins at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming on the BBC Sport website. Kick-off 7.55pm.
