Fans of League One’s Plymouth Argyle will have had to set an early alarm to get to London today – the Devon side have a lunchtime date with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Pilgrims haven’t beaten the Blues since a League Cup victory in 1979 – could a famous giant-killing be in store this weekend? Make sure you know how to watch a Chelsea vs Plymouth Argyle live stream for free in HD wherever you are in the world.
Chelsea’s form has stuttered in recent weeks, although Thomas Tuchel’s side have still only lost four games all season. The boss will be missing from the sidelines this afternoon having just tested positive for Covid, but he’s still named a strong team in advance of the FIFA Club World Cup. Lukaku starts up top with in-form Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount, with Hudson-Odoi likely to be asked to play as a wing-back. The Chelsea bench includes 18-year-old goalkeeper Teddy Sharman-Lowe.
Even though Plymouth Argyle have won just once in the past four games, they may well see this as the best possible time to play Chelsea. The Pilgrims currently sit just outside the League One playoffs and a famous win here could be just the confidence boost they need going into the second half of the season. Defender Brendan Galloway is the only injury absence, with Panutche Camará back from the AFCON and starting in midfield. Luke Jephcott and Jordon Garrick start up front.
Kick-off in this 4th round FA Cup fixture is today, Saturday 5th February at 12:30pm (GMT) and 07:30 (ET). Read on to find out how to watch a Chelsea vs Plymouth Argyle free live stream, wherever you are in the world
