Premier League champions Chelsea will open the new season at home to newly-promoted West Brom on August 14.

The Blues will then face a trip to Wigan on August 21 and host Stoke at Stamford Bridge a week later.

Carlo Ancelotti's men will face the first of their 'Big Four' rivals on October 2 when they play Arsenal at home. They face managerless Liverpool at Anfield on November 6.

Chelsea will play Harry Redknapp's Tottenham at White Hart Lane on December 11, followed by Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on December 18.

On Boxing Day, the Blues will take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, while the tricky festive period will also see the champions host Aston Villa on January 1. The home match against Liverpool is on February 5.

The run-in sees a mouthwatering fixture with Manchester United at Old Trafford on May 7, followed by a home clash with Newcastle on May 14. The final day sees them go to Goodison Park to face Everton on May 22.
