Why Chelsea vs Leicester City Premier League clash is not being televised live in the UK
Chelsea host Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night as the Blues play their penultimate game of the Premier League season.
Chelsea are set to take on Leicester City on Thursday evening, but the game isn't being broadcast live on TV in the UK.
Sky Sports opted to show Aston Villa’s game against Burnley due to the ongoing relegation scrap at the bottom of the table. Chelsea's original scheduled date to play Leicester was postponed due to the Blues featuring in the Carabao Cup final.
Thomas Tuchel's side have featured in both domestic cup finals this season, but lost out to Liverpool on both occasions, losing on penalties in both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup finals at Wembley. Tuchel spoke ahead of the game against Leicester covering topics on Ben Chilwell's return to training, Andreas Christensen's recent absence and the return of multiple loanees this summer.
Chelsea will finally play Leicester on Thursday night after waiting almost three months after the original scheduled date. Here are all the details you need to know ahead of Chelsea's fixture at home against Leicester City on Thursday evening.
Chelsea vs Leicester is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea v Leicester City live stream, Thursday 19 May, 8pm BST
Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their FA Cup final defeat by Liverpool when they host Leicester on Thursday.
The Blues pushed Jurgen Klopp's side all the way at Wembley, but for the second time this season they were beaten by the Reds on penalties in a cup final. Thomas Tuchel could not have many complaints about how his team performed over the 120 minutes, but the fine margins went in Liverpool's favour.
Chelsea may still have work to do in the Premier League. At the time of writing, they have still not wrapped up their place in next season's Champions League, and a defeat by Leicester would leave their fate unresolved heading into the final day. On the flip side, a victory over Brendan Rodgers' side would be enough to secure a third-place finish for Chelsea.
The Foxes thrashed Watford 5-1 at the weekend to register back-to-back wins in the Premier League for only the third time all season. It is no coincidence that Leicester's form has started to pick up now that some key players are back from injury, and Rodgers will now be eyeing a top-half finish.
Leicester will conclude their campaign against Southampton on Sunday, but they will first be looking for only their second win at Stamford Bridge in the last 20 years.
Chelsea will have to make do without Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi, neither of whom will play again until next term. Timo Werner felt something in the warm-up against Liverpool and is a doubt for Thursday's encounter, but Kai Havertz is hoping to be involved in some capacity as he continues his comeback from a hamstring problem.
Leicester will be unable to call upon the services of Ryan Bertrand, Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Hamza Choudhury. Papy Mendy could be passed fit in time to feature, though the midfielder is likelier to be on the bench than in the starting XI.
