Chelsea enter the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night when Championship side Barnsley make the trip to Stamford Bridge.
The South Yorkshire side beat Championship rivals Middlesbrough 2-0 last week to set up a third round tie with Frank Lampard’s side.
Chelsea have won the competition five times, most recently in 2015, while their lower league rivals have never made it beyond the quarter finals, which they reached in 1982.
The third round match will be decided on the night, with the game going to extra-time and even penalties if the sides cannot be separated.
What time is Chelsea vs Barnsley?
Barnsley’s visit to the Premier League’s big summer spenders kicks off at 7.45pm.
It’s one of eight Carabao Cup third round ties kicking off on Wednesday night.
All of those games kick off at 7.45pm as well.
Chelsea vs Barnsley TV channel and live stream
The clash at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Barnsley has not been selected for TV coverage.
However, fans can still stream the game by going to carabaocup.live.
Supporters can buy a match pass for £10 that will allow them to watch the game. Passes are only valid for one game, so people will need to buy individual passes for each game.
The EFL says: “Revenue generated from streaming Carabao Cup matches is split 50-50 between the Clubs involved.
“This would be the same as if fans were able to attend the match in person.”
Chelsea vs Barnsley odds
Barnsley have been EFL Cup specialists so far this season – beating Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough to nil – while losing both their Championship matches to nil.
Those defeats were against Luton and Reading so no shame, but lengthy odds of 12/1 to score another EFL success against Frank Lampard’s side are justified.
