Thomas Tuchel is preparing to take charge of his first Chelsea fixture.

The German was only appointed as Chelsea’s new head coach last night and he will be on the Stamford Bridge touchline watching his new side in Premier League action by 6pm this evening.

Tuchel won’t get a warm welcome at Stamford Bridge with fans still not allowed inside stadiums, so where can fans watch his first game in charge?

We run you through the details below.
