Sounds like it might be Chelsea v Man City youngsters if the game is played on the Sunday as the latter are travelling to Kiev on the Tuesday after.

For once I tend to have some sympathy for those involved..

Other TV games:

Arsenal v Hull City
12.45pm, Saturday 20 February
Live on BT Sport 2

Bournemouth v Everton
5.15pm, Saturday 20 February
Live on BBC 1

Blackburn Rovers v West Ham United or Liverpool
2pm, Sunday 21 February
Live on BT Sport 2

Chelsea v Manchester City
4pm, Sunday 21 February
Live on BBC 1

Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United
7.45pm, Monday 22 February
Live on BT Sport 2

Standard choices - reckon BT have just plumped for Arsenal v Hull as in their minds its the biggest rating winner of the games played on Saturday.

I might have gone for Spurs v Palace had it been allowed to be played on the Saturday.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
To be fair to Chelsea, it's a right old slog to get from Paris to London.......

It's not like a 3 hour private jet trip to Kiev is that demanding or draining.

It's more about the recovery time between games to be honest. Should have been on Saturday and kept both clubs happy.

Hell of a week for City though if you throw in the Capital One Cup final the following Sunday.

Go into it fighting on four fronts and could be League or Nothing a few days later.

And it probably won't be a little private jet for four hours.

They'll probably use this.

Oh yeh, 4 games in 11 days is too much, this game should have been the early Saturday kick off for sure.

Apparently one of the reasons it's not Saturday is that the police can't handle Fulham and Chelsea at home at the same time.

I don't know if you can just say 'no' to the telly (FCUM claimed you could... Perhaps they were just posturing) but have it at 4.00pm on Saturday and there would be minimal crossover of fans.

It's not like City or Chelsea would give a fuck about the broadcast fee.
