Chelsea begin the defence of their Premier League crown at home to Swansea City on August 8.
The reigning Premier League champions, who finished eight points clear of second-placed Manchester City in May, will be the pre-season favourites heading into the new campaign.
However, in the second weekend of the new season Jose Mourinho's men face a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City. (Full fixture list can be seen HERE).

Mourinho is currently busy making changes to his squad ahead of another gruelling campaign.
A loan deal for AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, who spent last season with Manchester United, has been agreed and should be announced within the forthcoming days. The Colombia international will replace club legend Didier Drogba, who left Stamford Bridge this summer.
Falcao is unlikely to start Chelsea’s first match against … because Diego Costa will continue in his role as the club’s first-choice centre-forward.
However, it will be fascinating to see whether Mourinho can help the 29-year-old rediscover his best form over the course of the season following his ill-fated campaign at Old Trafford.
Chelsea will be acutely aware that the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal will all strengthen this summer - but Mourinho is not expected to make wholesale changes to his title-winning squad.
Chelsea can win the 2015-16 title
The Blues possess a team capable of successfully defending their Premier League crown, with arguably the strongest spine in the division.
Thibaut Courtois is arguably the Premier League’s best goalkeeper - and certainly will be when Manchester United’s David de Gea leaves for Real Madrid - John Terry is still an outstanding centre-half despite his age, Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas are two of the league’s best midfielders, while Costa needed no time to acclimatise to the Premier League last season.
