What time does Chelsea v Man City kick-off?

The game is scheduled for an 8.15pm kick-off and starts shortly after the night’s two 6pm kick-offs conclude.

What is at stake?

Chelsea are involved in a desperate scrap for the Champions League places, so there feels a lot more on the line for them. Frank Lampard’s men were boosted by a 2-1 win at Aston Villa last time out but still have Wolves and Manchester United breathing down their necks moving into the final phase of the season.

You feel Man City’s own Champions League hopes will be decided by the courts rather than the Premier League table, but they will at least want to make sure they do their part on the pitch and need a couple more wins to be absolutely sure.
