If Chelsea lose their semi-final, they will face the losers of the other semi-final. That would be at an earlier time of 1pm (UK) and at the Al Nahyan Stadium.
Channel 4's head of sport Pete Andrews said: “This is one of the few major honours to have eluded Chelsea so it’d be great if they can make history live on Channel 4.
“We’re delighted to be bringing top-flight football live on free to air terrestrial television, let’s just hope the Blues can go all the way.”
