Chelsea vs Chesterfield LIVE: Stream FREE, TV channel, score, team news, kick-off time for FA Cup 3rd round clash

CHELSEA kick off their FA Cup campaign with a third-round clash against non-league Chesterfield.

91 places are between the teams as Chesterfield – top of the National League – make the trip to Stamford Bridge today.

The eight-time FA Cup winners will be aiming to go one better than last year – when they lost in a dramatic Wembley final to Leicester City.

Chesterfield were once involved in one of the most exciting FA Cup semi-final ties of all time – their 1997 3-3 draw with Middlesbrough.

Boro eventually went through after a replay, losing the final to Roberto Di Matteo and today's opponents.
