arsenal v liverpool

The eagerly-awaited clash between Arsenal and Liverpool is one of three FA Cup with Budweiser ties set to be aired live on BT Sport next month.

Both the Gunners and the Reds will be keen to progress, but one of these top Barclays Premier League sides is guaranteed to tumble out of the draw in the fifth round.

The game - which kicks off at 4pm on Sunday February 16th - will be the second match-up between Arsenal and Liverpool in the space of eight days.

Arsène Wenger takes his side to Anfield for a Barclays Premier League fixture on Saturday February 8th (kick-off 12:45pm) - another game to be broadcast live on BT Sport.

Both sides have been in excellent form this season, with Arsenal topping the table for much of the campaign. Liverpool also remain in title contention, meaning there is plenty to look forward to in this upcoming double-header.

Capital One Cup finalists Sunderland will also be in televised action on BT Sport next month, with their FA Cup fifth round tie against Southampton to be shown at 12:45pm on Saturday February 15th.

Gus Poyet's Black Cats have picked up in recent weeks but at the same time, Southampton's season has gone off the boil.

The Saints will still fancy their chances when they head to the Stadium of Light however, with a place in the last eight up for grabs.

The other tie to be shown on BT Sport will be Brighton & Hove Albion v Hull City, which kicks off at 7.45pm on Monday February 17th.

Steve Bruce takes his Tigers side to the south coast to face the Seagulls, who sit on the fringes of the Sky Bet Championship play-off positions.

Hull's main priority for the season remains Barclays Premier League survival, but with a number of their top flight rivals either out - or heading out - of the cup, they could fancy their chances of a Wembley appearance in 2013-14.
