How to watch Man United vs West Ham and all FA Cup games for free on TV

How to watch all FA Cup games tonight: Man United vs West Ham headlines the FA Cup action, but you can watch all four ties tonight on UK TV for free.

The FA Cup 5th Round is taking place during midweek, which is quite rare unless we’re talking about replays. There were four games last night with Blackburn, Brighton, Fulham and Man City all booking quarter-final spots.

The other half of the last 8 will be decided tonight. Wednesday night’s action is headlined by a battle between the two Uniteds – Manchester and West Ham. The former is fresh from a first domestic trophy in six years after defeating Newcastle (another United) in the EFL Cup final at the weekend.

The Red Devils look to be resurgent once again and with their continued spending power, it could be bad news for the rest of the Premier League’s big boys. West Ham have endured a difficult season following their European exploits and high league finish last term.

The Hammers have been hovering in or above the relegation zone for most of the season and the FA Cup might be a welcome distraction for boss David Moyes as he makes another return to Old Trafford tonight.

Elsewhere, Southampton host Grimsby, Burnley host Fleetwood town, and Sheffield United welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Brammal Lane.

The four games tonight are all live with BBC and ITV sharing the broadcasting rights across terrestrial and digital platforms.

We’re all set for a big night of FA Cup action tonight. Here’s how to watch on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house. Four screens could equal four games if your internet connection can stand up to it!
