Bradford City have been overlooked for television coverage of their fifth-round FA Cup tie with Sunderland or Fulham - despite their epic win at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s conquerors have missed out on a potential payday of a quarter of a million pounds as BBC and BT Sport have looked elsewhere.

Sheffield United’s potential home date with Manchester United has been selected, provided the Blades can overcome Preston North End and Manchester United can beat Cambridge United.

Middlesbrough - who knocked Manchester City out - have also been selected for tv coverage, for their game against Arsenal.

Here is the schedule of televised games:

Saturday February 14

West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United (12.45pm) – Live on BT Sport

Crystal Palace v Liverpool or Bolton Wanderers (5.30pm) – Live on BT Sport

Sunday February 15

Aston Villa v Leicester City (12.30pm) – Live on BBC1

Arsenal v Middlesbrough (4pm) – Live on BT Sport

Monday February 16

Preston North End or Sheffield United v Cambridge United or Manchester United (7.45pm) – Live on BBC1
