Chelsea to start defence of title at home to Burnley

Chelsea will start their title defence at home to Burnley when the 2017-18 Premier League season starts.

A week after that they face a short trip to face Tottenham at Wembley Stadium in the first Premier League match to take place at the national stadium.

The league will finish on Sunday 13th May 2018 with a 3pm kick, a week earlier than last season, with the World Cup in Russia starting on 14th June.

In the final set of fixtures for the season all of the newly promoted sides face matches against a team that finished last season in the top 5. Huddersfield will host Arsenal, Brighton will travel to Merseyside to face Liverpool and Newcastle will host Chelsea.
