BBC & BT Sport confirm live FA Cup Semi-Final picks


The live TV picks and scheduling for this season’s Emirates FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium have been confirmed by the Football Association.

One of the highlights of the English football calendar, the weekend will begin with the Premier League’s top two, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, going head-to-head, live and free-to-air on BBC One.

This semi-final clash brings up the fourth meeting between the London rivals under the arch in the last 10 seasons.

In addition to live coverage, the BBC will also broadcast a special edition of Football Focus live from Wembley on the Saturday as part of the build-up to the first semi-final.

Then on Sunday, Arsenal, chasing a record 13th FA Cup triumph, meet Manchester City, who have won 10 of their 12 FA Cup semi-finals, in a semi-final encounter which will be broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport.

Arsenal booked their place in the semi-final with a 5-0 victory over National League giant killers Lincoln City, while Manchester City beat Middlesbrough 2-0 in their quarter-final.

The game, which kicks off at 3pm, will follow a special edition of BT Sport’s FA Cup Today at 2pm, which will be followed post-match by FA Cup Tonight, where BT’s pundits will provide all the analysis and reaction from the contest.

Free-to-air highlights of the second semi-final will be broadcast later in the evening in a Match of the Day FA Cup special on BBC One.
