How to watch Chelsea vs Man City: Live stream online or listen for free

How to watch Chelsea vs Man City: One of the Premier League’s standout fixtures sees City visit Chelsea with major title implications. Here’s how to watch on TV, live stream or listen for free.

The battle of the Premier League’s 21st century rich sees moneybags Chelsea take on even moneybags-ier Manchester City. Usually this would be a game featuring two sides battling for the title, but both are currently well adrift of Arsenal who are eight points clear of second placed City at the start of play.

Chelsea, who are finding their feet under new recent managerial appointee Graham Potter, are languishing in 10th place, albeit with a game or two in hand on the sides above them.

This strange campaign hasn’t gone to plan for either of these Premier League heavyweights thus far, but there’s plenty of time to rectify matters as we enter the long second half of the season, following the mid-campaign break for the World Cup.

Pep Guardiola believes City need to be almost perfect to catch Arsenal at the summit (he always says stuff like that), while Potter may be hoping for enough of an upturn in fortunes to ensure he’s still in charge at Stamford Bridge at the start of next season. Either way, it’s a critical game for both clubs and one the nation will be glued to tonight, prior to the break for the FA Cup games this weekend.
