The FA Cup with Budweiser Fifth Round weekend will see three live ties broadcast on ESPN.
It all kicks-off on Saturday 18 February at 12.30pm with Chelsea entertaining Birmingham City at Stamford Bridge. Juan Mata’s penalty was enough for Andre Villas-Boas’ side to edge past QPR at Loftus Road while Birmingham powered their way through Sheffield United with a convincing 4-0 win against the League One promotion hopefuls.
There will be two live ties on Sunday 19 February and the first features last season’s FA Cup runners-up, Stoke City, travelling to League Two Crawley Town.
Crawley have carved out a reputation for FA Cup giant-killing over the last twelve months having beaten Derby County and Torquay as a non-League side last year and two Championship sides in Bristol City and Hull City this term.
The club made national headlines last season when they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Fifth Round.
Stoke sealed their passage to this year’s Fifth Round stage with a comfortable 2-0 win over Derby County at Pride Park thanks to goals from Cameron Jerome and Robert Huth. The Potters trip to Broadfield Stadium kicks off at 12pm.
The final game of Fifth Round weekend sees Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion at 4.30pm.
Kenny Dalglish’s side dug out alast minute 2-1 win over Manchester United in the Fourth Round thanks to a Dirk Kuyt goal while Mike Williamson deflected a Will Buckley shot into his own net as the Seagulls beat Newcastle United 1-0 at the Amex Stadium.
All six clubs taking part in the live ties get £212,000 as part of The FA Live Broadcast Fee while the winners receive £180,000 from The FA Cup Prize Fund.
