The Arsenal match against Coventry will be played on the Friday night
Tuesday 07 January 2014
Arsenal will kick off the fourth round of the FA Cup against Coventry on Friday January 24 in the first of five ties to be screened live across the weekend.
The Barclays Premier League pacesetters beat north London rivals Tottenham in round three, and will be hoping to avoid a major upset when Sky Bet League 1 Coventry - winners of the competition in 1987 - come to the Emirates Stadium in a game to be broadcast by BT Sport.
Saturday's lunchtime match is on ITV1 at 12:45 and will see Liverpool travel to either Bournemouth or Burton Albion, before Merseyside rivals Everton head to Stevenage at 5:30pm on BT Sport.
On Sunday, Sheffield United - who knocked out Aston Villa - will host the winners of the replay between top-flight duo Fulham and Norwich on BT Sport, while the live ITV1 tie is the all Barclays Premier League affair between Chelsea and Stoke at Stamford Bridge, which kicks of at 3:30pm.
Clubs involved in the televised games will each receive £144,000 in broadcast fees, with the winners set to pocket an additional £90,000 from the FA Cup prize fund.
