How to watch Chelsea vs Man City: Live stream the Premier League online

It’s the Battle of the Blues as Chelsea host Manchester City in the Premier League tonight

Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in London tonight. Kickoff is at 8:15pm and the game will be broadcast live on BT Sport in the UK from 7:30pm.

It’s been just over a week since the Premier League resumed after a three-month hiatus courtesy of the coronavirus pandemic. Ask anyone which team have started off best after the break and the unanimous answer will be defending Premier League champions, Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side won both of their opening matches against Arsenal and Burnley. They have scored eight goals so far and have yet to concede, but remain 23 points behind league-leaders Liverpool, who are just one victory away from winning their first Premier League title in 30 years.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, meanwhile, have just played one game post-break, which they won 2-1 against Aston Villa. The fourth-placed team on the Premier League table will want to put up a show in their first game back at their home stadium on Thursday to maintain their five-point cushion against Manchester United and keep their hopes of a Champions League spot next season alive.

The last time these two sides faced each other was earlier this season where Manchester City rallied against certain defeat to win 2-1 after N’Golo Kante put the visitors ahead. Last season, Chelsea defeated Man City at home but that was clearly under different circumstances.
