Leicester City and Chelsea are currently battling it out for a spot in next season's Champions League - but attentions turn to a very different prize this afternoon.

Leicester haven't exactly hit the ground running on their return to the Premier League, dropping four points across two games to Watford and Brighton and Hove Albion. As a former reserve manager at Stamford Bridge, Brendan Rodgers will want his Foxes to rediscover their edge, and having been defeated in the semi-finals of the League Cup to Aston Villa, the FA Cup could provide a trip to Wembley this season after all.

In the opposite dugout, Frank Lampard has also impressed with his brand of positive, possession-led football. With big names Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner on the way, Chelsea will be even stronger next season, but will be targeting a cup win to cap the season off in style. 

Kick-off is at 4pm BST and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1BT Sport Extra 1 and BT Sport Ultimate in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

AND Premier League live stream best VPN: how to watch every game from anywhere in the world


Use a VPN to watch a Leicester City v Chelsea live stream from outside your country

If you’re abroad for the game, your domestic on-demand services won’t work because the broadcaster knows your location based on your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to resort to illegal streams which buffer every five seconds. 

Don’t worry, though. All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to circumvent such annoyances, assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, of course. A VPN creates a private connection between whatever device you’re using and the internet, meaning your suppliers’ service can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
