The latest live television broadcast selections have been made and there are two Chelsea league games rescheduled in October.
The month starts with a midweek Champions League group game before we travel to St Mary’s to take on Southampton in the Premier League. This game will now take place on Sunday 6 October and will kick off at 2pm.
An international break follows and then we host Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, which remains a 3pm kick-off on Saturday 19 October. Following another European outing, we conclude the month with a trip to Burnley on Saturday 26 October, with a new kick-off time of 5.30pm. Both televised games will be screened on Sky Sports.
The latest fixture amendments to accommodate TV rights holders follow four changes to matches in August and September, including our league opener away at Old Trafford and the first home game under Frank Lampard against Leicester City.
We will discover our Champions League group stage opponents and fixture dates when the draw is made in Monaco on Thursday 29 August.
