It's crunch time today for Chelsea and Leicester City with top four spots up for grabs and Liverpool hot on their heels. Any dropped points in tonight's game gifts the advantage to their rivals. Forget the cup final. That was a dress rehearsal. The Champions League is the prize this time. Make sure you know how to watch a Chelsea vs Leicester City live stream today in 4K or for free wherever you are.
The team news is in and Mateo Kovacic makes the bench after his long injury absence. Kante and Jorginho start as the midfield pair. Mendy is back in goal but the Chelsea XI is otherwise as it was for the FA Cup.
The Foxes name a team much as it was for Saturday's final too. Timothy Castagne starts in the back three with Marc Albrighton and Luke Thomas as wing-backs. James Maddison is the third attacker along with Vardy and Ayoze Perez.
Leicester City will walk into this one feeling 10ft tall. Tucked under one arm is their first ever FA Cup trophy. Under their metaphorical other is the knowledge that they've already bested the Blues twice this season. It's Chelsea who have it all to prove.
With the two teams incredibly well matched, though, this feels like another test of player nerve and managerial know-how. Both know how to defend and it may simply be case of who can score first but will VAR have another key part to play? Don't miss the final part of this footballing drama.
It's an 8.15pm BST kick-off at Stamford Bridge today. UK viewers can watch in 4K on Sky Sports. US viewers can catch the action on Peacock TV and lucky football fans in Australia can subscribe to Optus Sport to catch all of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League matches for just AU$14.99/month.

Watch Chelsea vs Leicester City live stream abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch Man United vs Liverpool.
When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access – in this case, Australia. Then navigate to Optus.
You'll be able to continue using ExpressVPN from then on to watch anything else on Optus and a host of other services which may also otherwise block you.
