Promoted Sides, London Derbies, Big Six: Chelsea Learn Key Fixture Dates For 2022/23 Premier League Season

Chelsea can begin planning for their 2022/23 Premier League campaign after the fixture calendar was confirmed on Thursday morning.

They will face all the other 19 sides twice, both home and away, with the season kicking off for Chelsea on Saturday 6th August against Everton at Goodison Park - kick off at 5.30pm (UK). Thomas Tuchel's side will end the season at home to Newcastle United on Sunday 28th May 2023.

Everton haven't lost on the opening day since the 2011/12 season and after their 1-0 win over the Blues on Merseyside last month, Frank Lampard will be confident of another victory against his former club.

They will play three new sides next season after Fulham, AFC Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest were promoted from the Championship to the top-flight.

Meanwhile, it's a bizarre run of games for Chelsea for when they play the 'big six'. They will face all five of Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal at home, before travelling to the respective away grounds for the reverse fixtures.

Chelsea will play 12 London derby fixtures, with seven London sides now in the Premier League following Fulham's promotion.

Here are the full fixtures for when Chelsea will face the newly-promoted teams, their London counterparts as well as the 'big six' during the 2022/23 campaign:
