Chelsea fixtures on TV: How to watch every Premier League match – TV channels and KO times
Chelsea resume their Premier League campaign against Aston Villa on Sunday, over three months after their last outing due to the coronavirus outbreak. The Blues currently sit fourth in the table and are on-course for Champions League qualification, but Frank Lampard’s men need to keep up the momentum.
Chelsea are five points behind third-placed Leicester and just three clear of Manchester United while Wolves and Sheffield United are also in close attendance.
Victory at Villa Park is therefore vital in keeping their hopes of Champions League football alive – particularly as winning this year’s tournament looks out of the question.
The Blues are 3-0 down after the first leg of their Round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich, having been hammered at Stamford Bridge.
A turnaround against the German champions is highly unlikely, and Chelsea will not be able to attempt a comeback until after the Premier League campaign has been completed.

With these restrictions in place, the Premier League has struck deals to show every single remaining fixture of the season on TV.
This will include four free to air games each on the BBC and Amazon while selected games on Sky Sports will be shown on Pick and will not require a subscription.
