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.
