BT Sport viewers are in for another treat this weekend, as Arsenal and Liverpool prepare to lock horns for the second time in eight days.

Gunners fans were left aghast last Saturday as Liverpool romped into a 4-0 half-time lead in their Barclays Premier League encounter at Anfield, which finished 5-1.

Centre-half Martin Skrtel scored twice in the first ten minutes, as the Reds made a mockery of their opponent's top-of-the-league status.

But Arsène Wenger's men have the chance to exact quick revenge on Liverpool in Sunday's FA Cup with Budweiser fifth-round tie.

A place in the quarter finals is at stake as the sides line-up for a 4pm kick off on February 16th, live on BT Sport 1.

With a number of top flight sides already out of the competition, and others guaranteed to fall this weekend, both Arsenal and Liverpool will fancy their chances of silverware this season.

Sunderland and Southampton will also have their eyes on a potential Wembley appearance when they meet at 12:45pm on Saturday February 15th.

The Black Cats have already booked their ticket to north London for the Capital One Cup final in March, and would love to emulate this feat in the world's oldest knock-out competition.

But Mauricio Pochettino's Southampton can be dazzling on their day, and with the Saints sitting a comfortable eighth in the Barclays Premier League, they will be focusing their energies on a good cup run.

When the sides last met in January, in another game broadcast live on BT Sport, goals from Fabio Borini and Adam Johnson saw Sunderland come back from 2-0 down to claim a point.

In the third televised match of the weekend, Hull City face a potential banana skin when they travel south to take on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Steve Bruce's side are enjoying their Premier League return, and the signings of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavi? have increased the Tigers' attacking options.

But Albion are a good side on the fringes of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, and have won their last two games against Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United without conceding.

Arsenal v Liverpool, Sunderland v Southampton, and Brighton & Hove Albion v Hull City will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 this weekend.
