Middlesbrough v Tottenham: How to watch the FA Cup on TV and live stream

Middlesbrough and Tottenham go head-to-head in the FA Cup this weekend


Tottenham face a long trip north to take on Middlesbrough in the FA Cup third round.


Spurs have won just one domestic trophy since the turn of the century – the 2008 League Cup – and Jose Mourinho will be desperate to end that miserable streak.

Middlesbrough endured a terrible start to the Championship season but have clawed their way into form with four wins in a row to transform their campaign.

RadioTimes.com has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Middlesbrough v Tottenham game on TV and online.

What time is Middlesbrough v Tottenham?

Middlesbrough v Tottenham will kick off at 2:01pm on Sunday 5th January 2020.

Why is Middlesbrough at 2:01pm?

Kick off times are being intentionally delayed by a minute across the whole third round in support of the ‘Take a Minute’ to think about your mental health, part of the Heads Up campaign.
