There’s only one place to be for all the best pre-match build up on a matchday and that’s The 5th Stand app. Have you joined over three million Chelsea fans and downloaded our app yet?

Did you know, that we produce a live show before every Blues fixture that is available to view on our app and here on the Chelsea website? Best of all, it’s absolutely free to tune in and watch!

Today’s live show promises to be a cracker ahead of our clash with Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad Stadium, with plenty of key talking points to be addressed.

The show gets underway at 4pm, with Matt Davies-Adams being joined pitchside by Jason Cundy to as we await the arrival of Frank Lampard and his players.

The pair will discuss last season’s defeat to City and how the Blues can put that right with victory this season, as well as looking at the potential tactics Lampard could employ.

There will also be discussion around former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s return to management with Tottenham and the duo will also debate who they think will open their account for the season – Kurt Zouma or Mateo Kovacic.

You can join in the conversation via the ‘Hot Topics’ forum in the app, which can be found by accessing the ‘Connect’ section.

We will also bring you the team news first at 4.30pm before providing live audio commentary of the fixture via the Match Centre, with that stream starting at 5.25pm and is also free of charge to listen to.
