FA Cup live stream: How to watch FA Cup third round fixtures for free

FA Cup: Football Digest panel preview third round

The third round of the FA Cup third is here which means Premier League and Championship sides have joined the competition. However, recent outbreaks of Covid-19 across English football are having a knock-on effect on the competition. A “significant” outbreak at Aston Villa will see them field a team consisting mainly of under-23 and under-18 players against Liverpool.

Derby are in the same position as their first-team squad will miss the clash with Chorley.

Southampton’s tie with Shrewsbury on Sunday has been postponed after several Shrews players and staff tested positive for the virus.

All games that are going ahead, however, will be available to watch in the UK.

Eight fixtures will be shown live across BT Sport and the BBC.

The remaining games will be available to stream via online platforms.
