Chelsea and Man City face off tonight as the Premier League's 'Project Restart' continues. Don't miss a kick by following our Chelsea vs Man City live stream guide below.

Fourth-place Chelsea kick off on home soil for the first time since lockdown began in England as they host the Premier League title holders at Stamford Bridge. Man City currently sit in second place, trailing league leaders Liverpool by 23 points.

The Pensioners have only played one game following the unscheduled break in the season with a spirited victory over Aston Villa. That away win saw them coming from behind in the second half with Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud both finding the net.

Pep Guardiola's men have been in fine form since their return to competitive action with two fine victories over Burnley and Arsenal with a combined goals tally of 8. However, the Citizens will be without star striker Sergio Aguero after he picked up a knee injury in the team's last outing at Turf Moor. That being said, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, and Aymeric Laporte could return to the starting lineup.

Given the post-lockdown form, Man City look the clear favorites though nothing is certain in the current climate. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Chelsea vs Man City no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
