Tottenham vs Southampton One Of Two FA Cup Replays To Be Televised

Southampton Travel To Tottenham Live On BT Sport

Southampton’s replay with Tottenham will be shown live by BT Sport on Wednesday 5 February following the two sides stalemate at St Mary’s Stadium.

Jose Mourinho’s side took the lead in the 58th minute through Heung-Min Son, after a perfectly timed strike from just inside the box found the bottom corner of the net.

Tottenham thought they had won the game with five minutes remaining.

However, Southampton were rewarded for the battling effort with three minutes remaining through a Sofiane Boufal equaliser. The winger was found arriving in the box, and hammered home the equaliser past Paulo Gazzaniga.

Oxford United Also Selected For TV Coverage

Oxford United have also seen their replay with Premier League side Newcastle United selected by BBC for TV coverage.

Karl Robinson’s side held Newcastle to a 0-0 draw at St James’ Park.

It was a valiant effort by Oxford. They only had two shots on target during the first game against the Magpies, and Joelinton saw a goal ruled out for offside.

The winner of the tie will face West Bromwich Albion in the next round.

Shrewsbury vs Liverpool Not Selected

After their 2-2 draw at the Montgomery Waters Meadow, Shrewsbury’s trip to Anfield to face Liverpool will not be broadcast on television.

It comes after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said that he would play the kids in the replay, and not be present himself.

Instead, Under-23’s manager Neil Critchley will take charge of the game against the League One side.

Klopp’s stance comes after the FA said not to play any competitive fixtures during the scheduled winter break for Premier League clubs.
