Chelsea will take on Brighton in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. Mauricio Pochettino's side will be looking to continue their progress in the Cup after a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon in the second round.

The Blues have struggled to get going this season and have only managed to win one out of their six Premier League games so far. They are winless in their last three matches which included two defeats and will be looking to bounce back from that with a much-needed mid-week victory.

Having won five out of their six league games, Brighton are third currently in the standings and will be the favourites to win the game based on form. They are heading into the fixture on the back of a win against Bournemouth in which Kaoru Mitoma scored a brace.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
