The future of Chelsea remains up in the air, but on the pitch they just keep winning. Today they host fellow West London side Brentford, who have been transformed by Christian Eriksen. Read on for your full guide to getting a Chelsea vs Brentford live stream and watching the Premier League game online from anywhere.
Thomas Tuchel's Blues won't be winning any style prizes, but there's no arguing with the results. They've won 12 of their past 13 games across all competitions, 12 of those being gritty, hard-fought, clench-your-teeth affairs decided by a single goal.
The Bees look like a different team with Eriksen in it, and the Danish playmaker comes into this clash off the back of an outstanding return to international football.
We've got all the info on how to live stream Chelsea vs Brentford from anywhere. And if you're out of the country and can't access your preferred domestic broadcaster, you can always use a VPN to bypass any geo-restrictions.
Chelsea vs Brentford kick-off time
The Chelsea vs Brentford game is being played at Stamford Bridge, and kicks off at 3pm BST on Saturday, April 2.
That makes it a 10am ET / 7am PT start in the US. It'll be a late night for Premier League fans in Australia, with kick-off at 1am AEDT on Saturday night/Sunday morning (with the clocks set to change just after the game).
How to live stream Chelsea vs Brentford if you're abroad
If you're out of the country right now, you can still get access to a live stream - simply drop a shoulder and a shimmy, and use the best VPN around to get past those geo-restrictions.
With most domestic broadcasters locking streaming services to their country, you may hit a wall when it comes to accessing the likes of Sling or Optus Sport when overseas. However, by getting yourself a handy streaming VPN, you can hop on a server within the US or Australia (or anywhere else for that matter depending on where your online content is geo-restricted to), and this will switch your IP address to make it appear as if you're browsing right from the comfort of your own home.
ExpressVPN is the top dog of VPN providers with its excellent speed, plethora of security features, and, of course, its ability to unlock geo-restricted content and get you the best seat in the house for Chelsea vs Brentford.
Better still, it offers new customers a 30-day money back guarantee, allowing you to give it a shot and find out if it's actually the service for you, before you part with your hard-earned money. Better still, right now you can save 49% and receive an additional 3 months with your plan for free.
Can you watch Chelsea vs Brentford in the UK?
Unfortunately, no broadcasters are showing the Chelsea vs Brentford game in the UK because of the pesky Saturday afternoon blackout.
The rule prevents any football that's being played between 2.45pm and 5.15pm from being broadcast live in the UK.
However, there are plenty of games on TV both before and after, with BT Sport showing Liverpool vs Watford at 12.30pm BST, and Sky Sports showing Blackpool vs Nottingham Forest at 12.30pm, and Man Utd vs Lecester at 5.30pm.
If you aren't in the country right now, using a VPN will allow you to tune in just like you would if you were at home.

How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions
If you're outside of your preferred broadcaster's boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and watch a Chelsea vs Brentford live stream as if you were right at home. Here's our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.
- VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anonymity as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
- As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
- Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
- When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, as well as nifty free VPNs.
- Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it.
- To live stream Chelsea vs Brentford, all you need to do is select the right server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions, with your broadcaster of choice opening its online gates to you.
- We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money back guarantee.
