The Blues, led by Graham Potter, have to turn their campaign around, and the arrival of their traditional rivals, Leeds United, who are in danger of being relegated, kicks off a vital week for the club.
After that, Chelsea will play Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday, and the following week they will go to Leicester City, a team that is fighting to stay in the Premier League.
The Blues have been scoreless in their previous six matches, dating back to their 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace on January 15. They have lost their previous three games.
After taking over for Thomas Tuchel at the beginning of the season, this will be a crucial match for Potter as he tries to win back the confidence of fans who are unhappy with his appointment as head coach.
Due to the fact that the match will not be broadcast live in the United Kingdom, it will begin at 3 p.m. local time, which corresponds to the blackout period throughout the UK.
On the other hand, much like every other Premier League fixture this season, it will be aired throughout the globe.
Supersport in sub-saharan Africa and beIN SPORTS has the authority to air sports in the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey, while Arena Sport is in charge of broadcasting in the territories of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and Slovenia.
Peacock Premium is the channel that is carrying the match throughout the United States of America. ViaPlay and V Sport are the channels that are airing the tournament in Scandinavia and the Baltics.
Sky Sports broadcasts to audiences in Germany and Italy, while SuperSport Variety is the channel available to African fans.
Potter, for his part, is delighted with the performance of his players out on the practise field, but he acknowledges that there is still room for improvement.
“That’s the difficult aspect for us, since there are a great deal of good days,” he added.
“We’re seeing a lot of beneficial things from day to day.” Yet they have been unable to translate their abilities onto the field, as seen by the outcomes.
“I would argue that achievements haven’t been quite as poor as outcomes, but we are aware of the industry in which we operate and the fact that the achievements haven’t met our expectations.”
“But, in terms of day-to-day exercise, how the mood is among the players, how the squad is coming together, and how the guys are becoming stronger, everything about it is fantastic.”
