It's Friday, and that usually means that there isn't too much footie to be found on TV. Every once in a while there's a Friday night game that is of interest to Chelsea fans though, and tonight there are several Chelsea loanees in action. The following games being played on Friday all feature Chelsea players:

  • Roda JC vs. Utrecht (Amin Affane) 19:00 BST
  • Blackburn vs. Middlesbrough (Josh McEachran) 19:45 BST
  • Moreirense vs. Vitoria SC (Milan Lalkovic, Matej Delac) 20:05 BST

For you American fans, the Middlesbrough game is worth paying special attention to. Many television providers have started carrying the beIN Sports Network, and beIN will be carrying today's Middlesbrough game live. Josh has been playing very well for them, and it's fairly likely he'll be getting another start today. Lalkovic and Affane have also been impressing, and there's a good chance both get starts today as well. Delac will likely have his usual view from the bench.

As always with these open threads, keep it clean, no linking to illegal streams (they are out there), and have fun.
