Chelsea’s fixtures for the 2017-18 Premier League season have been released.
The Blues will begin the campaign with a home match against Burnley, followed by a visit to Wembley to take on London rivals Tottenham on August 19. Their first encounter with Arsenal, meanwhile, will take place at Stamford Bridge on September 16.
Antonio Conte’s first season in the English top flight could not have gone much better, but defending the title will be an even greater challenge. Their full league fixture list for 2017-18 is below.

Just two weeks after the visit of Arsene Wenger’s side, the Blues host Manchester City, while Manchester United arrive in early November and a trip to Liverpool follows a fortnight later.
Chelsea’s festive period begins with a visit to Everton, before home games against newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion on Boxing Day and Stoke City before opening the New Year at Arsenal.
Back-to-back trips to Manchester await, with Jose Mourinho’s side coming up on February 24 before Pep Guardiola’s men on March 3.
Despite sitting top of the table for most of last term, Conte’s men had to wait until the third last week to seal the title and their run-in to the end of next term is a mixed one, with Huddersfield and Swansea preceding a home clash with Liverpool before closing at Newcastle.
