Manchester City vs Chelsea Exhibition Game in New York City: Open Thread

chelsea manchester city 600x345 Manchester City vs Chelsea Exhibition Game in New York City: Open Thread

After Thursday night’s pulsating 4-3 comeback win for Manchester City against Chelsea in St Louis, the anticipation is building for tonight’s match between the two clubs, which will be played at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

For viewers in the United States, the kick-off time is tentatively scheduled for 5:30pm ET on FOX Soccer. However, the exact kick-off time will depend on what time the UEFA Champions League Final finishes and whether the game will go into extra time and/or penalty kicks.

In team news, Chelsea are missing Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and Frank Lampard who have returned to London to meet up with the England national team.

This will be Manchester City’s first match in New York City since their announcement that they’re purchasing a MLS franchise, so it’ll be interesting to see what the reaction is to the team in Yankee Stadium.

Before, during or after tonight’s match, join the conversation in the comments section below.
