Chelsea vs Blackburn: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

Chelsea are tonight under pressure to make it into the Carabao Cup quarter-finals by beating second-tier Blackburn.

For Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino, the season continues to be littered with inconsistencies.


Despite some promising signs, Saturday’s home loss to Brentford was a major disappointment and his team are yet to fully convince.

Losing to a Championship team at Stamford Bridge would only ramp up the pressure even further after such a big summer spend.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs Blackburn is scheduled for a 7.45pm GMT kick-off time tonight, Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

Stamford Bridge in London will host.
