Friday Facts: Chelsea's pre-season 2017/18


Happy Friday Blues fans! It's the end of another week without any Chelsea football, but at least Abraham, Baker and Chalobah have been entertaining us in the U21 Euros!

Chelsea's fixture list have also recently been released, which means we can look forward to our favourite matches next season.

Before that, though, the Blues will come back from the summer break to play some pre-season football.

Here are five great facts about the Blues' three pre-season fixtures announced so far!

1. Chelsea get the chance to pay back Arsenal for their FA Cup defeat in their first match on 22 July, before taking on the Gunners again in August in the Community Shield.

2. Chelsea's next match is against Bayern Munich on 25 July. The Blues have played Bayern four times in competitive matches: three times in the Champions League and once in the UEFA Super Cup.

3. The Blues beat Bayern at their home stadium in Munich in 2012, when they lifted the Champions League trophy for the first time.

4. Inter Milan are Chelsea's final pre-season opponents on 29 July, a team they played over two legs in the 2010 Champions League.

5. All three matches will be played in Asia: the Blues face Arsenal in Beijing before taking on Bayern and Inter in Singapore.

It's the transfer window before that, so a lot could happen in the lead up to July's first game. I can't wait to see how the new Chelsea squad do against these three big teams!
