Chelsea eye good omens with Burnley opener

Chelsea’s opening-weekend fixture at home to Burnley may have Blues fans finding good omens for their Premier League title defence.

Antonio Conte’s team are striving to become the first club to retain the Premier League title since Manchester United in 2008/09 and will aim for a repeat of their convincing 3-1 victory at Turf Moor on Matchweek 1 of their victorious 2014/15 campaign.

An intriguing first round of fixtures will also pit Manchester United at home to West Ham United, while promoted Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion will host Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City respectively.

Huddersfield Town’s first Premier League match will take place at Crystal Palace.
