The FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford will be shown live on BBC 1 at 7.45pm on Monday 9 March.

BT Sport, meanwhile, have gone where the BBC opted not go and made Bradford City's FA Cup quarter-final clash with Reading free to all.


The channel came under criticism in the last round when they decided not to show Bradford at home to Sunderland after the Bantams had beat Chelsea - they argued that Bradford may have faced Fulham which was not as enticing as a midlands derby between Aston Villa and Leicester.

BT Sport has decided to make the game, that will be aired on Saturday, 7 March, free to all online and on the Sky platform - BT TV customers can watch the match as usual.
