For those without BT Sport, eight different FA Cup ties will be available to watch from Friday 27 January through to Monday 30 January. City and Arsenal get things underway on Friday, and then there are five games across Saturday and Sunday, before Derby vs West Ham United on Monday night.

Friday 27 January

Manchester City vs Arsenal

  • Time: 20:00 (GMT)
  • Location: Etihad Stadium, Manchester
  • TV channels: ITV1, UTV, STV, ITVX, STV Player, Freeview: 3)

The top two teams in England meet on Friday night when Manchester City host Arsenal.

While there may well be changes to each side's starting XI, talents like Martin Odegaard, Phil Foden and new Gunners signing Leandro Trossard are expected to feature.

Saturday 28 January

Accrington Stanley vs Leeds

  • Time: 12:30 (GMT)
  • Location:
  • TV channels: BBC One, BBC iPlayer, Freeview: 1

Accrington Stanley advanced into the fourth round of the FA Cup by beating Boreham Wood. Their reward is a home tie against Premier League opposition in Leeds.

Jesse Marsch's side are unpredictable at the best of times, so this one could be packed with goals.

Walsall vs Leicester City

  • Time: 12:30 (GMT)
  • Location:
  • TV channels: BBC Red Button, BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport website

One goal from Kelechi Iheanacho proved enough for Leicester to surge past Neil Harris' Gillingham in the last round, but this trip to Walsall still seems like a potential banana skin.

The Foxes' form has been poor for most of the season and with five losses in their last seven games, they could be prey for potential giant-killers Walsall, who are firmly entrenched in League Two mid-table.

Preston North End vs Tottenham

  • Time: 18:00 (GMT)
  • Location: Deepdale Stadium, Preston
  • TV channels: BBC One, BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport website, Freeview: 1

Spurs shook away some cobwebs recently by beating Fulham and will be targeting an improved FA Cup run than recent years have provided.

They've been knocked out in the fifth round in the last three tournaments and face a Preston side in with a shout of promotion from the Championship.

Manchester United vs Reading

  • Time: 20:00 (GMT)
  • Location: Old Trafford, Manchester
  • TV channels: ITV4, ITVX, Freeview: 26

Concluding the Saturday night action is Manchester United's clash with Reading at Old Trafford.

Royals boss Paul Ince is returning to his former club with his current side in tricky form, having won just won of their last six Championship games.

Sunday 29 January

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Liverpool

  • Time: 13:30 (GMT)
  • Location: AMEX Stadium, Brighton
  • TV channels: ITV1, UTV, STV, ITVX, STV Player, Freeview: 3

Liverpool recently travelled down south to face Brighton and were sent back to Merseyside with a 3-0 defeat.

That fixture was rather one-sided but Jurgen Klopp will be expecting an improved performance as the Reds aim to retain the trophy.

Wrexham vs Sheffield United

  • Time: 16:30 (GMT)
  • Location: Racecourse Ground, Wrexham
  • TV channels: BBC One, BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport website, Freeview: 1

Wrexham are the lowest ranked side left in the competition and take on Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield United.

The Blades are seeking re-entry into England's top flight but first have to see off the Hollywood-backed Welsh side.

Monday 30 January

Derby vs West Ham

  • Time: 19:45 (GMT)
  • Location: Pride Park, Derby
  • TV channels: ITV4, ITVX, Freeview: 26

The fifth round of the FA Cup draws to a close on Monday night when David Moyes takes West Ham to Derby.

The Hammers have struggled in recent months and are nervously looking over their shoulder in the Premier League, while Derby haven't lost a game since their Carabao Cup exit to Liverpool in November.
