Chelsea head into the new season with high hopes and renewed expectations, and the Blues have rolled the dice in a busy summer so far.


Romelu Lukaku has been allowed to leave the club, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are gone, loan stars Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja have returned and Raheem Sterling appears to be on the way in.

Thomas Tuchel will be determined to use this summer to shape the squad in his image. He came under pressure towards the end of the season after losing two major finals to Liverpool at Wembley in 2021/22.

The German coach is something of a perfectionist and will no doubt have his side working hard in the coming months to ensure they're prepared for their season opener against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday 6th August.

With Boehly now the owner, it's no surprise that Chelsea's pre-season schedule takes them across to the United States for the first time since 2019 – starting with a training camp in LA ahead of three fixtures played across the country.
