Soccer fans will continue to enjoy live sporting action of the Emirate FA Cup games as Tottenham rivals Middlesbrough at north London while Manchester United take on Wolves at Old Trafford in the return legs of the Emirate FA Cup third-round encounter.

Both matches will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday, next week and StarTimes Nigeria has assured subscribers of the exclusive live broadcast of the Emirate Cup matches and other thrilling sporting actions on its ST World Football Channels 244 and 254 and ST Sport Premium channel 246.

Jose Mourinho’s men were held by Championship opposition, Middlesbrough on Sunday forcing them into a second match in north London despite fielding a full-strength side.

The team was forced to rely on Lucas Moura equalizer to cancel out Ashley Fletcher’s second-half strike and that adds to an extra fixture with an already congested period of matches for Spurs, who will play the match on Tuesday, January 14 at 9:05 pm three days after their away match at Anfield.

Manchester United’s match against Wolves will be played a day later than Spurs’ fixture, on Wednesday, January 15 at 8:45 pm African time on StarTimes. The two sides played out a goalless draw at Molineux, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failing to register a single shot on target.

The winner of the clash will then face Watford or Tranmere Rovers, with that game set to be replayed at Prenton Park after a thrilling 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road.

Ties for the fourth round will be played between January 24 -27th while victory for Tottenham would set up a trip to St Mary’s to face Southampton in the fourth round of the competition.
