Chelsea are in a strong position for Champions League qualification, which will be the least Thomas Tuchel would accept of the season after the quarter-final loss to Real Madrid in this year’s contest. They could still get silverware in the FA Cup, where they face Liverpool in the final next month, but given the Reds beat them in the Carabao Cup final, that’s not a given.

However, third place seems likely: Chelsea are five points ahead of Tottenham with two games less. As Arsenal battle to climb into those top four spots. They have now slipped behind Tottenham and Manchester United after a three-game losing streak and will be desperate for at least a point here to stay in touch.

Side selection, Chelsea will be deprived of Mateo Kovacic, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi. They also rest Kai Havertz with bigger games to come; Romelu Lukaku takes his place. For Arsenal, Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney are definitely out, and Alexandre Lacazette is on the bench.

Here’s how they line up:

Chelsea: Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Sarr, Christensen, Alonso, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Lukaku, Werner.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Gabriel, Holding, Tavares, Xhaka, Elneny, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Saka, Nketiah.

How is this going to unfold? You can find out by watching the Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream. Read on and we’ll show you how to do this.

How to watch Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream wherever you are

The Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream will be shown on many different channels around the world, but what if you’re not in your home country and want to watch it on your regular service?

The answer is to use a VPN or virtual private network. A VPN will allow you to connect to your home coverage wherever you are, which means that if you are abroad you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the matches live as if you were in your living room.

Our current favorite is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of blazing speed, great customer service, and great device support. It also offers a 30-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so you can check it out without having to sign up long term.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you want to connect to in the VPN app. For example, if you are in the UK and want to view a US service, you would select US from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.

Football fans in the United States can watch the live broadcast of Chelsea vs Arsenal in the United States and on the NBC website with a valid ID. The United States is accessible via a cable television package.

If you’ve cut the cord and don’t have a cable, you have plenty of options too. Our selection of these would be TV Sling: The Sling Blue package costs only $35 per month and includes more than 30 channels, including NBC. Moreover, at the moment Sling is offering $10 off the first month.

Fubo.TV is another option for live TV. Their Pro plan costs $70 per month but gives you 121 channels, including the US, and plenty more for sports fans.

Canadians can watch Chelsea v Arsenal live stream on DAZN.

Unfortunately, DAZN no longer offers new customers a 30-day free trial, so you’ll have to pay the CAD$20 monthly fee, although you can save a bit by buying annually ($150 CAD). DAZN, if you’re unfamiliar, has apps on every streaming platform out there.

Canadians stuck abroad who still want their low-cost alternative can use a VPN such as ExpressVPN to trick their streaming device into thinking he’s back in the great white north.

sky sports has Chelsea vs Arsenal live streaming in the UK, so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn’t include Sports, you’ll need to pay £25/month to add those channels.

Whichever plan you choose, you’ll also get access to 4K and HDR coverage, provided you also have an HDR-capable Sky Q box and an HLG-capable TV.

If you don’t want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gets you 24 hour access for £9.99 or a month’s access for £33.99, but again Sky is currently offering a lot here: you can sign up for six months of access for just £25/month now. Now Sports is available on virtually all streaming devices and is a great option if you don’t already have Sky.

Everything sounds good, right? But if you are not in the UK, you can still follow Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN.
