Is Man City v Chelsea on TV? Kick-off time, channel and live stream details for Carabao Cup clash

Everything you need to know ahead of the Carabao Cup third round clash between Manchester City and Chelsea.

The Carabao Cup third round is now well underway, and we have the most mouthwatering tie this evening. Premier League champions Manchester City host fellow big boys Chelsea in an early heavyweight clash, and this one was circled as the tie of the round by most. City have dominated the competition over recent years, winning six of the last nine editions, and they will be hoping to wrestle the title back from Liverpool this season.

In the Premier League, City currently sit second, continuing to hunt down leaders Arsenal, while Chelsea have struggled so far this term, currently sitting in seventh. Thomas Tuchel was sacked early on, and new boss Graham Potter has suffered from some teething issues early on, with the Blues losing both of their last two Premier League games.

This will be an interesting clash as the penultimate outing for both teams before the World Cup break takes hold, and here we have rounded up all you need to know about the Carabao Cup tie.

What has Pep Guardiola said?

Ahead of this one, City boss Guardiola has said of Chelsea boss Potter: “If Chelsea accept my humble advice, give him time and he will do well. They got good results but the way they play, when I saw the game against Brighton that they lost, I saw many things I remember from his period in Brighton. But he needs time, everybody needs time.

“No one has success from day one or two, I have a lot of admiration for his work. What he did at Brighton was beyond exceptional and I’m pretty sure with time he will do a good job, I don’t have any doubts. He is one of the best managers from my point of view, we have in this league.”

What has Graham Potter said?

Chelsea boss Potter has said of his team: “Jorginho has a slight problem with his foot, so he’s doubtful for tomorrow,’ said Potter. ‘Apart from that we’re with pretty much the same group that we had. Kepa is still unavailable. We’ll see about the World Cup. He’s got to take it day by day, it’s a tear in the plantar fascia, so it depends on how he responds, how he responds to pain, how comfortable he feels, but at the moment it’s not so positive.”

Potter also confirmed he will rotate his squad, adding: “Yes, we will do [make some changes] because some guys are pushing to play. That will be good. At the same time, we have to go there and be competitive and try to win the match.”
