Chelsea’s next Premier League fixtures compared to top four opponents Man United, Arsenal, and Spurs

Chelsea were far from flawless in their 1-0 win over Everton, but Thomas Tuchel won’t mind because they came away with all three points.

After Ben Chilwell was bundled over, Jorginho’s penalty kick proved decisive. 

The German manager was tight-lipped about his plans for the remainder of the transfer window, but he did admit they were looking to add to the squad.

The victory over Frank Lampard’s side was the first in six years, following a string of defeats.

Blues fans got to see their summer signings in action as Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling were given starts, with Marc Cucurella making an appearance late on.

With the race for the top four already virtually impossible to predict after gameweek one, SportsDias compares Chelsea’s next seven games to those of league rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, and Arsenal.

Tottenham (H) – August 14

Chelsea welcome Antonio Conte back to Stamford Bridge as they look to build on their opening-day win over Everton.

Spurs had a brief stutter when James Ward-Prowse volleyed home, but they quickly recovered.

They finished fourth last season, but after a summer spending spree, they are expected to improve on that performance this season.

Chelsea will be hoping that the rust has worn off by the time they play again, but a win over Spurs would boost their growing momentum and confidence.

Leeds (A) – August 21

Their second away trip of the season will be no easier than the first, as they travel to West Yorkshire to face Elland Road.

Chelsea have won three of their last four meetings against the Whites, scoring three goals in each of their victories.

The Blues won the previous meeting 3-0 thanks to Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, and Romelu Lukaku, while Dan James was sent off in the first half.

Leeds also got off to a good start, coming from behind to defeat Wolves in a tense match.

Leicester (H) – August 27

When Leicester returns to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will be hoping to cause more problems for them.

Brendan Rodgers has yet to add to his squad, with James Maddison and Wesley Fofana all linked with moves away from the King Power Stadium.

With years of Champions League and Europa League football behind them, the Foxes are a far cry from their best.

a lethargic Chelsea drew their first meeting in May, but Tuchel will be hoping that by the time they meet again, more additions will have come through the door and they will be firing on all cylinders.

Southampton (A) – August 30

Southampton is another club that is widely expected to struggle this season. They started well against Spurs but gradually faded as the hosts ran riot.

They play Leeds and Leicester before facing two of the big six, Manchester United and Chelsea, at home.

Last season’s trip to St Mary’s proved to be a delightful trip to the south coast, as they won 6-0.

West Ham (H) – September 4

It remains to be seen whether West Ham will attempt to join the Big Six in their pursuit of European football.

They did a good job under David Moyes last season, but the Hammers have strengthened in the summer.

During the previous season, they proved to be difficult opponents, making life difficult for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool.

Chelsea earned three points in their most recent meeting after Christian Pulisic scored in stoppage time after Jorginho missed a penalty.

Fulham (A) – September 10

Their London rivals will be hoping to have made their mark on their return to the Premier League by the time they face Fulham.

Many fear Fulham will continue to vacillate between the Championship and the English Premier League.

However, their opener against Liverpool demonstrated that they will not be taken lightly, as they made life difficult for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah restored parity twice after Aleksandr Mitrovic scored twice.

Chelsea will need to be ready to race from the start, or they will face the same problems as last season’s runners-up.

Liverpool (H) – September 18

The two German head coaches meet again on the eve of the international break.

Both teams played two classics against each other last season, with Mateo Kovacic scoring a goal of the season candidate.

Liverpool got off to a slow start in the new season, and by the time they visit South London, they’ll want to be firing on all cylinders.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking for vengeance after losing to their Merseyside rivals in the Carabao Cup final and the FA Cup final.

Crystal Palace (A) – October 1

Following the international break, the Blues will travel to Selhurst Park.

Patrick Vieira was nominated for Manager of the Season for his work with Palace.

Although their start to the season was not ideal against Arsenal, they will need to pick up points quickly as they face Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United before hosting the Blues.
