In what should be a mouth-watering reunion with Frank Lampard, the Blues will be looking to get one over the Merseyside outfit, having lost each of their last four visits to Goodison Park.
Chelsea return to Stamford Bridge seven days later for a highly-anticipated London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, before wrapping up August with a fairly easy run as they face Leeds United (A), Leicester City (H) and Southampton (A) in an 11-day spell.
Thomas Tuchel’s side secured a third-placed finish to book their place in the Champions League last season, while also clinching the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles.
However, the Blues narrowly came up short in the finals of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, losing on penalties to Liverpool on both occasions.
Chelsea will be able to exact their revenge on the Reds on September 17, when both sides lock horns at Stamford Bridge, before visiting Anfield for the return fixture on January 21.
The Blues take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on November 5 then host Newcastle United seven days later in what will be their final outing before the month-long break for the FIFA World Cup.
With no games between Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve, Tuchel’s side will enjoy a light festive schedule as they host Bournemouth on December 26 before wrapping up the year with an away clash with Nottingham Forest on December 31.
Chelsea’s final road game sees them visit the Etihad Stadium in the penultimate game-week of the season to face champions Manchester City, who they lost against in both home and away fixtures last term.
