What can you watch on Chelsea platforms this week?

The Champions League is back for the Blues this week and our away leg against Atletico Madrid features prominently in the live video coverage on the Chelsea website and app, along with two very special guest appearances on Matchday Live...

Monday 22 February

Over 10 weeks on from being paired with the La Liga leaders in the Champions League Round of 16, Chelsea vs Atletico is finally here this week, albeit with an away leg in Romania instead of the Spanish capital.

To preview the game, Thomas Tuchel will be speaking to journalists in a media conference from Cobham on Monday afternoon, prior to travelling to Bucharest. Among the topics of conversation is likely to be an update on the fitness of the squad and some reflections on his own journey to the final last year with Paris Saint-Germain, as well as an assessment in Diego Simeone's side.

It gets underway from 2pm and you can tune in on the Chelsea website and 5th Stand app.

Tuesday 23 February

Mark Schwarzer will be the special guest on Matchday Live as our former goalkeeper joins in the pre-match chat and post-match analysis. The Aussie stopper played in both legs against Atletico in the 2013/14 Champions League semi-finals, replacing the injured Petr Cech and helping the Blues keep a clean sheet in Madrid in the away tie.

You can follow all the build-up from the Arena Nationala in Bucharest exclusively across Chelsea platforms, with Matchday Live getting underwayat 6.50pm, 10 minutes before the teamsheets are handed in. Schwarzer and his fellow guests will be reacting to Tuchel's team selection and previewing the big game, with further live shows at half-time and full-time.

You can watch on the 5th Stand, Facebook Live and our official YouTube channel.

Friday 26 February

It's another big game this weekend as we host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon and Tuchel will be previewing that one with his usual pre-match press conference on Friday. The briefing is due to start at 1.30pm via video link from Cobham.

Sunday 28 February

It's a super Sunday in SW6 as Manchester United are in town for a mouth-watering Premier League clash, with plenty at stake in the top four. With the late afternoon kick-off, Matchday Live will get underway at 3.20pm featuring a very special guest - Claude Makelele!

As well as a first look at the team news at 3.30pm, there will also be blue-tinted discussion from our guests on the show. You can watch live on the 5th Stand, Facebook Live and YouTube.
