BBC and ITV have made their TV picks for the FA Cup fourth round replays.

But some fans are not happy with the choices, with one calling it “another shocker.”

Five games from the fourth round ended in a stalemate.

And the FA Cup matches will be replayed next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesday February 6 will see Plymouth Argyle host Leeds live on BBC one at 7.45pm.

While on Wednesday February 7, Chelsea will travel to Aston Villa live on ITV at 8pm.

It means Southampton vs Watford and Coventry vs Sheffield Wednesday, which take place on the Tuesday, will not be televised.

And the same applies to Wednesday’s game between Bristol City and Nottingham Forest.

However, some fans have been left unimpressed by the picks.

One growled: “Shock that ITV have gone for the all-Prem fixture again.”


Another declared: “Shock Leeds on TV, not the chance of a Championship team beating a Prem team.”

One noted: “The magic of the FA Cup – eliminates all chance of a TV giant killing.”

Another boomed: “Another shocker.”

One added: “What a surprise another PL tie selected.”

The full draw for the fifth round has already been made, with Blackburn facing Newcastle and Bournemouth taking on Leicester.

Wolves will take on Brighton while Luton host Man City.

Elsewhere, either Wednesday or Coventry face Maidstone United, while Liverpool play one of Watford or Southampton.

Bristol City or Nottingham Forest will host Manchester United.

And finally, either Chelsea or Villa will welcome Leeds or Plymouth.
