Hull City vs. Chelsea — Live on NBCSN and Live Extra, Noon  ET

Steve Bruce’s Tigers are one of four teams within three points of the final relegation spot in the Premier League, and face a tall task in hosting Chelsea. Hull has only lost one match of its last six, and would be buoyed by taking any points from the visiting leaders.
