Among their league duties, Chelsea will have Champions League and Carabao Cup commitments prior to November in the first half of the season and will be hoping to heading into the mid-season break in a commanding position.

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar commences on Monday 21st November which means the domestic leagues will come to a halt on the weekend of 12 November.

And Chelsea's task on that weekend, with fixtures subject to change, is no easy feat - they will travel to St James' Park on Tyneside to face Eddie Howe's Magpies.

But there is 15 games before Chelsea play Newcastle.

Tuchel is yet to improve his squad this summer ahead of the season starting and the squad returning to Cobham for pre-season but business is expected to be carried out in the coming weeks.

The Chelsea head coach knows they need to improve to match the benchmark set by Manchester City and Liverpool, while also expecting a challenge from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

"It will be a super tough race," said Tuchel last season on next year's title race. "Manchester United will be in the race and Tottenham will be in the race with Antonio Conte for sure. 

"We want to stay in the race and Liverpool and Man City do everything to make their squads bigger and they set the standard so high. This is the challenge in which we compete."
