Twelve Premier League games from now, on Match Day 23, Chelsea will battle Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.  The way things are going, this could very well be an early title-decider, title-clincher for the boys in (not light) blue.  Unsurprisingly, Sky Sports have picked it for their Saturday prime time kick-off slot.

Our Barclays Premier League home fixture against Manchester City will now kick off at 5.30pm on Saturday 31 January.

What this means is that fans in England will be able to watch on TV as well, now that the fixture isn't scheduled in the traditional 3pm Saturday slot.

This will be our fourth Saturday prime time match of the season (in addition to three Super Sunday picks).  Earlier, we beat Everton at Goodison 6-3 in what still remains one of the craziest matches of the season.  The second will come soon after the current international break, when we travel to bogey team Sunderland on November 29th, while the third one will the New Year's Day match at White Hart Lane.
