FA Cup returns to BT Sport with two blockbuster quarter-final ties as Arsenal, Chelsea, Sheffield United and Leicester City all vie for place in the last four
BT Sport is serving a veritable feast of football this summer as the FA Cup resumes with two blockbuster quarter-final ties
After three months without football, BT Sport is ready to serve up a veritable summer feast of English top-flight action.
Not only will BT Sport be showing 20 live Premier League games between June 17 and the end of the season, but the FA Cup is also returning to our screens.
Football’s oldest competition will resume at the quarter-final stage with a massive double-header live and exclusive on BT Sport.
First, on Sunday June 28, Sheffield United host Arsenal at Bramall Lane with coverage beginning from 12:30pm.
The tie is a repeat of the 2003 semi-final clash at Old Trafford which saw Arsene Wenger's side seal a narrow 1-0 victory to reach their third successive FA Cup final.
The Blades have been the surprise package in the league this season and Chris Wilder's men will have no fear when Mikel Arteta's side arrive at Bramall Lane.
The Gunners made light work of League One Portsmouth to reach the last eight as goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Eddie Nketiah helped a youthul Arsenal side through a potentially sticky fifth-round match up.
"There is a long way to go [in the FA Cup]," said Arteta after the match. "But we're on the right path. We'll see what happens in the draw. We'll keep going because we love this competition."
Then later that day, Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City host Chelsea at 4pm (coverage starts from 3:30pm) to round off a huge afternoon of FA Cup action.
Frank Lampard's Blues sprung a major surpise in the fifth round by defeating the Premier League's runaway leaders, Liverpool.
Goals from former Toffee Ross Barkley and Willian helped the south-west Londoners to a hard-fought win at Stamford Bridge to set up an encounter with one-time Chelsea coach Rodgers and his young Foxes.
Leicester right-back Ricardo Pereira's late header booked his side's place in the FA Cup quarter-finals at the expense of in-form Championship side Birmingham City.
The result ended a run of four games without victory for the 2016 Premier League champions to set up a mouth-watering tie at the King Power Stadium.
