Newcastle's trip to Arsenal in the FA Cup chosen for live television coverage on terrestrial TV

Newcastle United's trip to Arsenal in the FA Cup third round next month has been chosen for television coverage.

The Magpies' clash with the Gunners will take place on Saturday, January 9, with kick-off at the Emirates Stadium at 5:30pm.

Newcastle fans will also be able to watch the clash between the two sides on terrestrial TV, with the match chosen by BBC One for live television coverage.

The all Premier League clash is one of eight live TV selections out of the 32 third round matches.

United have already reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup this season and reached the last eight of last season's FA Cup in Steve Bruce's first term in charge.

However, they will have to come past the defending champions, with Mikel Arteta's side set to be heavy favourites at the Emirates Stadium.

Winning clubs in the FA Cup third round will receive £61,500 from the prize fund, with losing clubs receiving £20,500. Meanwhile, both Newcastle and Arsenal will both pocket £75,000 from the FA for a live broadcast fee.

BBC and BT Sport’s 16 secondary match selections – which will be made available across a combination of digital platforms and linear red button services – and the eight additional matches on The FA Player will be announced in due course.
