The Premier League champions will be back at Wembley on Sunday looking to assert some revenge on Arsenal after the Blues were beaten in the FA Cup final.
It’s been a summer of upheaval at Stamford Bridge amid reports that Antonio Conte isn’t happy behind the scenes.
And that’s after the Italian signed a new, improved contract with Chelsea.
A few players have come in. Tiemoue Bakayoko joined from Monaco, although he’s missed the entire pre-season with an injury, and it’s unclear when Chelsea fans will get to see him in action.
Andreas Christensen is back at the Bridge after a two year loan stint at Gladbach, while Antonio Rudiger signed from Roma.
Up top, as Diego Costa continues to be frozen out, Alvaro Morata has joined from Real Madrid.
Out v Gunners, in v Burnley
This Sunday, Chelsea are likely to field a familiar XI as they did in the back end of last season.
Pedro and Eden Hazard, however, will miss the Arsenal match through injury.
It’s also been revealed on the FA official website that Victor Moses is suspended for the Community Shield.
Moses received a one match ban in the FA Cup final after he failed to con the ref into giving him a penalty.
That could ultimately be a huge bonus for Conte, as Moses would be available for the Premier League opener against Burnley a week later.
Re. earlier tweet: Victor Moses is actually only suspended for the Community Shield it appears, and not the opening PL game. #CFC
