Chelsea's away tie in the 4th Round of the FA Cup at Preston North End will now be shown live on ITV.

But this comes at a price.

The game, on Saturday, January 23, will kick off at 12.45pm.

Chelsea will have a ticket allocation of 6,000 so all you brave souls who fancy a night out in nearby Blackpool will have plenty of time after the game to sample the delights.

In fact why not go up a day earlier?

Should the Blues force a replay, then that match will be at the Bridge on Wednesday 3 February, kicking off at 7.45pm.

What do you think of the match?
