Sarri and one of his players will speak to the media shortly from the Eden Arena, the venue for tomorrow’s match which is in the east of the city. We will bring you all the key information on our official Twitter account, this website and the official club app, which will also feature live audio commentary of Thursday’s match.

Kick-off is at 8pm UK time (9pm local time). The second leg at Stamford Bridge is a week later.
