Chelsea have announced three pre-season fixtures, one of which will take place at Stamford Bridge.
Once the World Cup is over and the players begin to return from their holidays, preparation will begin for the 2018/19 campaign.
Frustratingly, we still have no idea who will be holding the reins at Stamford Bridge when we lock-horns with Manchester City in the Community Shield. That hasn’t, however, stopped the club preparing our pre-season plans.
Chelsea have announced three more fixtures on the club’s official website. Firstly, on Saturday 28th July, the FA Cup winners will face Serie A giants Inter Milan at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice, France.
On Wednesday 1st August, Chelsea will lock-horns with Premier League rivals Arsenal in Dublin, before facing Lyon at Stamford Bridge on August 7th. Our final pre-season fixture takes place just two days after the Community Shield, so you can expect a heavily rotated side.
