Chelsea’s full schedule for the 2018/19 campaign has been revealed, with the Blues looking to make up for the failures of last season.
The Blues will be hoping to improve on the shortfalls of the past campaign and force their way back into the top four. Failing to qualify for the Champions League in three out of four seasons would be a financial disaster. It is, quite frankly, not an option.
It remains unclear who will be in the Chelsea dugout come the opening fixture of next season. Antonio Conte’s future at the club remains in serious doubt, with Maurizio Sarri, Laurent Blanc and Luis Enrique all being linked with the managerial post in recent weeks.
Whoever it may be zipping up their Chelsea tracksuit on the opening day will undoubtedly be eager to find out who they’ll be locking horns with for the first three points on offer. We can reveal that we will travel to Huddersfield on the first day of the league season

Ones to look out for in there are that we will be playing away from home on both the opening day and final day of the Premier League season. We also host Arsenal on just the second game of the season, which is one to look forward to.
Our clash with Manchester United on April 27th could prove pivotal in the race for top four, especially when you consider that we are due to face Liverpool just 14-days prior to the game.
We will visit Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium for the first time on November 24th, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men travelling to Stamford Bridge on February 27th.
Chelsea’s first game against champions Manchester City will take place on December 8th. We will pay a trip to the Etihad two-months later on February 9th.
What do you think of our fixtures, Blues?
