Premier League fixtures: Chelsea face tricky start to title defence

Chelsea face a very tough start to their Premier League title defence as Antonio Conte’s men take on Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City in their first seven matches of the campaign.

Conte’s arrival at Stamford Bridge last season saw them surge to the trophy they had lost in the previous term, eventually winning it by seven points from Tottenham.

And they will meet their closest challengers from 2016-17 in just the second week of the season, following up an opening home match with Burnley by becoming the first team to take on Mauricio Pochettino’s side in a Premier League game at Spurs’ temporary Wembley residence.

They take on Everton a week later, with a home encounter against Arsenal sandwiched by difficult away trips to Leicester City and Stoke City.

Manchester City are the visitors to Stamford Bridge on September 30, with Jose Mourinho and Manchester United arriving five weeks later. The new year begins in a similarly tricky fashion with a January 1 trip to Arsenal.

The return fixture against United on February 24 precedes a potentially decisive month of March in which Chelsea face City and Tottenham, while the final two games of the season see them host Liverpool and travel to Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United.
