Chelsea head to Goodison Park for their Premier League opener against Everton on Saturday evening, and all the details of how to watch the match have been revealed.
Thomas Tuchel's side begin their 2022/23 campaign with a trip to Merseyside to face Frank Lampard's Toffees, and will be hoping to get off to a winning start.
It was a challenging pre-season for the Blues, but Chelsea have dedicated their whole week to preparing for Everton to ensure they are as ready as they can be for the league opener.
Tuchel said: 'We are what I explained before, not only because of the World Cup but also how we see ourselves, a bit of delay and the sanctions, change of ownership. We allow ourselves the luxury to dig in week by week now into this season. This is how we decided in the staff to communicate to the team, let’s take this opportunity and go week by week. This full week was dedicated to Everton."
After losing to Everton back in May and coming up against Lampard and co again, Tuchel is aware of what is needed to be done to ensure they avoid another defeat in front of a 'very emotional crowd and team'.
The Chelsea head coach added: “We played very late last season in Everton, we lost. We remember very well. We need nothing more to know what is coming. Fantastic atmosphere, very emotional crowd, very emotional team.
"Of course we know some familiar faces on the other side of the bench. The bench is not so far away in Everton. And still, we have nothing but respect for Frank and his staff. A lot of people with Chelsea history, it was very respectful between the two benches and it will be but at the same time will be very competitive.
"Was a very late game in the season and we lost it and absolutely do not like to lose. We even dislike it more to lose twice, so we know what is coming and we will be ready."
