The Football Association has confirmed the five FA Cup fifth round ties to be broadcast on live TV.

ESPN will show three matches, while ITV will broadcast the other two.

It all kicks-off on Saturday 18 February at 12.30pm, live on ESPN, when Chelsea entertain 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.

The winners of the Middlesbrough v Sunderland fourth round replay will go up against Arsenal live on ITV1 at 5.15pm on Saturday 18 February.

Last season’s FA Cup runners-up, Stoke City travel to Crawley Town live on ESPN at 12pm on Sunday 19 February.

Tottenham Hotspur travel to League One Stevenage live on ITV1 at 2pm on Sunday 19 February.

And the final game of fifth round weekend sees Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion at 4.30pm on ESPN.

Kenny Dalglish’s side dug out a last 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.
