Despite Chelsea playing in a UK TV slot, tonight’s game at Stamford Bridge is not broadcasted to those in the UK. For those around the world the game will be on TV as usual.
The game is not shown live in the UK due to Tottenham vs Manchester City being picked for TV coverage instead.
Chelsea issued a statement for the reason of the change of scheduling; “Friday, 26 January is the only date the match can take place. This is due to Fulham being drawn at home to Newcastle United, the scheduling of their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Liverpool on 24 January, and Aston Villa being in Premier League action on January 30.”
In the USA the game will be broadcasted on ESPN + with a 2.45pm ET kick off. Paramount + Sports in Australia will be showing the game. The game is on SuperSport in South Africa and Nigeria.
For those who can’t watch, the match highlights will be available on the Chelsea website shortly after the match or Match of the Day in the UK will have a highlights package.
