Chelsea vs Liverpool one of FOUR FA Cup fifth round games to be shown live on the BBC next week

CHELSEA's eagerly-anticipated clash with Liverpool is one of FOUR FA Cup fifth round games to be shown live on the BBC next week.

A host of top football will be heading to free-to-air TV next week as England's premier cup competition returns.

Chelsea vs Liverpool headlines Tuesday's games, along with West Brom vs Newcastle - both shown live on the BBC.

The next evening, Tottenham play Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday host Man City - with the BBC once again showing both games.

Coverage of all four matches will start at 7.30pm - with BBC One hosting one game and the other being streamed live on iPlayer and the BBC Sport website.

In a bumper schedule of FA Cup action, the broadcasters will also show two classic games.

Chelsea's 4-2 win over Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup in 1997 will be shown immediately before the live game.

And on Wednesday, they'll replay Man City's 2-1 win over their Sheffield opponents from the third round of the 2007 FA Cup.

On top of that, the BBC will be showing a two-part "FA Cup fifth round rewind" - as well as all the highlights from all the games from 10pm both evenings.

The quarter-final draw will then be broadcast after Wednesday's games.

And fortunately for the teams there will be no pesky replays at this stage.
