Chelsea will travel to Huddersfield Town on the opening day of the new Premier League season.

It has been confirmed that Blues will make the trip to David Wagner’s side before facing Arsenal the following week in their first home game of the season.

Despite not yet appointing a new manager or confirming the future of head coach Antonio Conte, the Blues will be optimistic about the trip to Huddersfield.

Chelsea will be pleased with the opening run of fixtures, with only Arsenal and Liverpool featuring from the top six clubs.

Games against Cardiff and Bournemouth in September present the Chelsea boss, should Conte leave the club, a good chance to hit the ground running.

The Blues also face a busy, but favourable Christmas period with games against Leicester, Watford and London rivals Crystal Palace.

Chelsea's 2018/19 away kit leaked online .
An image of what appears to be Chelsea’s 2018/19 away kit has appeared online. Twitter: New Chelsea found in local store @LavCFC @SiPhillipsSport @HazardChaos @NGoloFC @tatticadisarri @OfficialCheIs https://t.co/FJkenfLipX (@Hkouf8) The image was posted by a fan who saw it in a local store, who have seemingly put the strip on sale prior to its release date. The image shows that Chelsea are reverting back to having a yellow away kit for the first time since the 2014/15, the year when they famously won a Premier League and League Cup double under Jose Mourinho. It has been suggested that yellow shorts and socks will complete the Chelsea 2018-2019 away kit. There is no official launch date set for the kit at this time, but is expected to be officially revealed and released in early July.
