Chelsea vs Leicester: TV channel and live stream

Chelsea and Leicester face off at Stamford Bridge today, in Frank Lampard’s first home Premier League game as Chelsea manager. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Chelsea vs Leicester this afternoon, including full live stream details.

In the opposite dugout will be former Chelsea reserve team manager Brendan Rodgers, a man who, ironically, probably would have been perfect for the role that Lampard now occupies. This Leicester squad has enormous potential, and the Foxes will surely be licking their lips at the prospect of facing the Blues after their capitulation at Old Trafford last weekend and gruelling 120-minute Super Cup tie against Liverpool in Istanbul midweek.

Many are expecting Leicester to challenge Chelsea for a place in the top six at the end of the season, but both sides will fancy their chances today.
