The rerun of last season’s FA Cup with Budweiser Final between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic will be shown live on BT Sport.

The Sixth Round clash at the Etihad will take place on Sunday 9 March with a 4pm kick-off.

Highlights: Cardiff 1-2 Wigan


But the Latics will be without their FA Cup talisman, Ben Watson, who broke his leg against Barnsley on Tuesday.

Watson scored the last minute winner at Wembley last year and also netted against Crystal Palace and Cardiff City in this season’s competition.

The tie will give Wigan boss, Uwe Rosler, a return to the blue side of Manchester where he made over 150 appearances for the then Maine Road club in the mid-Nineties.

Highlights: Man City 2-0 Chelsea


Manchester City beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Fifth Round last Saturday thanks to goals in each half from Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri.

Both clubs will receive £247,500 from The FA in live broadcast fees while the winning team will get £360,000 from The FA Cup prize find. 

Arsenal v Everton was announced earlier this week for ITV on Saturday 8 March at 12.45pm.
