A brand new matchday show will be streamed live on The 5th Stand app on Tuesday evening and it makes its debut with a mighty fixture – the big London derby at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Arsenal.
There is much to play for over the 90 minutes with Frank Lampard’s side looking to complete a Premier League double over the Gunners and bounce back from the weekend defeat at Newcastle, while the north Londoners, currently 10 points behind the Blues, need a boost to their hopes of a top-four finish.
When is the show and what is it called?
Kick-off for the game is at 8.15pm and Matchday Live: Chelsea v Arsenal will begin exclusively on The 5th Stand at 8pm with a mix of live reaction to the team news and the match action plus analysis and debate throughout the evening.
