Everyone else will be able to watch the game live on BT Sport, as Tim Sherwood and Brendan Rodgers look to steer their respective sides into next month's final.

Aston Villa's form has picked up markedly since Sherwood's arrival as manager in mid-February. He has overseen league wins over West Brom, Sunderland and Spurs to ease the Midland club's relegation fears.

With Villa currently six points above the relegation zone, and Christian Benteke back among the goals, they can go into this weekend's cup clash in higher spirits, and a little less under pressure.

Liverpool's season hinges on their success in the FA Cup. Having experienced an up and down league campaign and disappointment in Europe, the Reds are desperate to claim some silverware.

The disappointment of last season's second place finish in the Barclays Premier League is still tangible at Anfield, but an FA Cup triumph could help exorcise the ghosts of 2013-14.

BT Sport viewers have plenty more to look forward to at the weekend, starting with a Friday night Ligue 1 clash between Nantes and Marseille at 7:30pm.

Saturday's action gets underway with Western Sydney Wanderers v Adelaide United at 8am, before Augsburg v VFB Stuttgart from the Bundesliga at 5:30pm, Monaco v Rennes from Ligue 1 at 7pm and Juventus v Lazio from Serie A at 7:45pm.

On Sunday April 19th, Perth Glory v Melbourne City kicks things off at 8am, before two games from Italy's top flight: Sassuolo v Torino at 11:30am and Roma v Atalanta at 2pm.

Montpellier v Caen from Ligue 1  is live at 4pm, with BT Sport viewers able to look forward to the Milan derby - Inter v AC - from the San Siro at 7:45pm.

Sunday evening's 8pm kick-off is Lyon v St Etienne from France's top division.
