Chelsea fixture list 2017-18 sees Blues handed very tough August and September by Premier League

Posted by

Chelsea’s bid to win back-to-back Premier League titles for the second time this century will begin with a home clash with Burnley.

The Premier League fixtures were released at 9am this morning and they appear to have given the Blues a mixed start.

After their opener against Burnley, Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton in their next six, as well as tricky trips to Stoke City and Leicester.

Their most testing month could well be September, while their run-in looks fairly straightforward, other than home games against Spurs and Liverpool in their final nine.

Chelsea have four high-profile pre-season games to play before the Premier League gets underway.

Antonio Conte’s men face Arsenal in a Beijing friendly on July 22, before travelling to Singapore, where they will take on Bayern Munich on July 25 and then Inter Milan four days later.

Chelsea meet Arsenal again six days before the Premier League begins as the two London clubs re-enact May’s FA Cup final in the Community Shield at Wembley.
