How to watch FA Cup quarter-finals

All four of the FA Cup quarter-finals are being shown live on television in the United Kingdom. Here is how you can watch and/or stream each one.

Wolves vs Coventry: Saturday, 16 March (12.15)

Wolves vs Coventry will kick off the quarter-final weekend with a lunchtime start at Molineux on Saturday, 16 March. Coventry are one of two non-Premier League sides left in the competition which makes the occasion slightly more special for the Sky Blues.

The match is being shown live on ITV1 and will also be available to stream on ITVX. To be able to watch the match on ITVX, you will need to sign up for a free account on the website or app before kick-off and then click on the match on the “live tv” section when the programme has started.

Man City vs Newcastle: Saturday, 16 March (17.30)

Man City will continue their defence of their treble on Saturday, 16 March when they play Newcastle in the quarter-finals. The match has been given the evening slot which is better for the travelling Newcastle fans as it will allow them to make a day out of what could be their final meaningful match of the season.

Man City vs Newcastle will be shown live on BBC One and streamed live on BBC iPlayer. Like ITVX, iPlayer is a free streaming service that users can register for prior to kick-off to be able to watch it live on a mobile device or tablet.

Chelsea vs Leicester: Sunday, 17 March (12.45)

Chelsea and Leicester will play in the opening FA Cup match on Sunday, 17 March at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are looking to return to Wembley for the second time this season after playing in the Carabao Cup final in February while Leicester are looking to win the competition for the second time in four years.

Chelsea vs Leicester will be shown live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer with Gary Linekar expected to host the coverage. Alan Shearer, Danny Murphy and Jermaine Jenas are popular BBC pundits who could also be part of the broadcast.

The biggest quarter-final tie has been saved until last with Man Utd set to face Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, 17 March. Jurgen Klopp is chasing a historical quadruple to round of his Liverpool career while Man Utd's only hope of silverware this season is the FA Cup which sets this game up beautifully.

Man Utd vs Liverpool will be shown live on ITV1 and ITVX with Laura Woods expected to host live coverage of the match. ITV have used several pundits throughout this year's competition, including Eni Eluko, Roy Keane and Ian Wright.
