Chelsea will be hoping to regain the Barclays Premier League title in the 2011/12 season, and face a mixed bag of opponents in the opening 10 games of the new campaign.
The Blues face a tough opening day fixture away at Stoke City, however, the task for the new Chelsea boss will be more straightforward in the two games after, with West Brom and newly-promoted Norwich travelling to Stamford Bridge.
Another away trip - this time to the Stadium of Light - follows, before an early season crunch match against reining champions Manchester United.
The last time United hosted Chelsea, the former ran out 2-1 winners in what was to be an almost title-clinching victory at Old Trafford. Chelsea, then, will be looking to strike an early blow next season by taking all three points this time around.
Next up for the west Londoners will be Swansea - who triumphed over Reading in the the playoff final - while a potential banana skin awaits a week later with a visit to the Reebok Stadium.
Everton - who beat Chelsea on the final day of last season - lie in wait in early October before an old geographical rivalry is reignited with Npower Championship winners QPR.
Chelsea end October against fellow title-contenders Arsenal, with both teams likely to be vying for supremacy at the summit of the table.
In terms of key dates, Chelsea face a potentially pivotal encounter against Manchester City in December, with both sides looking to be top of the tree come the festive period.
Things really hot up for Chelsea in the New Year, with Manchester United coming to the Bridge in early February, while another tasty battle against City awaits in March.
A thrilling climax to the season is in store for the Blues, with a vital trip to Arsenal at the end of April followed closely by a visit to Anfield for the penultimate game of the campaign.
