Two Emirates FA Cup fifth round ties will have the use of a VAR

Two Emirates FA Cup fifth round ties will involve a video assistant referee [VAR] next weekend.

The match between Chelsea and Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Friday 16 February will be the first tie of the round to receive the VAR treatment.

And the following day will see Huddersfield Town’s home clash with Manchester United also have a VAR in place to assist the match officials.

Both of those ties will be shown live on BT Sport 2.

Fifth round ties are all taking place between 16 and 18 February. Why not find out if there’s a tie near you?
