Chelsea vs Leicester City live stream: How to watch the Premier League from anywhere in the world
Watch a Chelsea vs Leicester City live stream as the Blues seek to bounce back
Chelsea vs Leicester City live stream, Saturday 27 August, 3pm
Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat by Leeds when they take on Leicester this weekend.
The Blues were emphatically beaten by Jesse Marsch's side on matchday three, going down 3-0 at Elland Road. Thomas Tuchel stated his belief after the game that his team had been superior, but he probably did not believe that deep down. Chelsea (opens in new tab) were poor in Yorkshire and have plenty of convincing to do as they seek to mount a challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Tuchel will hope that the showing against Leeds (opens in new tab) was a one-off. Chelsea were pretty comfortable in a 1-0 defeat of Everton (opens in new tab) on the opening weekend, and they were unfortunate to draw 2-2 with Tottenham (opens in new tab) on matchday two after dominating that London derby. There is no need for Chelsea to despair, then, but they do need to get back on track as quickly as possible.
Leicester (opens in new tab) have just one point to their name so far, and even that was a disappointing outcome as Brendan Rodgers' charges threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Brentford. Subsequent losses to Arsenal (opens in new tab) and Southampton (opens in new tab) have left Rodgers under pressure, although it would have been hard for any manager to shut out the noise that has whirled around the club all summer.
Alex Smithies, a back-up goalkeeper, remains the only signing Leicester have made since the end of last term. Youri Tielemans continues to be linked with a move away, while Chelsea target Wesley Fofana will play no part this weekend as he seeks to force through a transfer.
Leicester will also have to make do without injured full-back duo Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand, but James Maddison is expected to be fit after feeling a "twinge" in training this week.
Kalidou Koulibaly is suspended for Chelsea, who will also be without Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso and N'Golo Kante.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST on Saturday 27 August. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
