Exclusive LIVE FA Cup 4th round action on eir sport


eir sport has confirmed that it will show five live FA Cup 4th round games next weekend (Jan 24th-26th), three of which are exclusive to the channel.

Dating back to 1872, the FA Cup is the oldest club football cup competition in the world and is a firm favourite with sports fans everywhere.

The action begin next Friday night with exclusive coverage of the QPR v Sheffield Wednesday tie at Loftus Road (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 7.50pm).

Saturday sees two exclusive all-Premiership affairs as Southampton take on Tottenham at St Mary’s (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 2.50pm) and Burnley face Norwich at Turf Moor (LIVE on eir sport 2 from 2.55pm).

The Saints are on a good run which has seen them climb well clear of the drop zone in recent weeks, a run which included a 2-1 win over Jose Mourinho’s side. Can Tottenham avenge that defeat and make it to the fifth round or will the Saints march on?

Holders Manchester City are in action on Sunday as they entertain Championship side Fulham at the Etihad (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 12.50pm). Retaining their Premier League title looks a long shot at this stage, but Pep Guardiola will be keen to win some domestic silverware and are sure to field a strong side for this one.

Runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool face a tricky tie as they travel to New Meadow to take on Shrewsbury Town (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 4.50pm). The League One side will be looking to cause another upset after seeing off Championship contenders Bristol City in round three.
