Chelsea will begin 2022/23 under the ownership of new owners after a campaign that nobody could have predicted coming off the pitch in 2021/22.
The new coach, Todd Boehly, will take over a team that qualified for the Champions League by finishing the third last time out, and head coach Thomas Tuchel will be hoping that his players will be able to challenge for the title in the coming season.
Chelsea came agonizingly close to winning both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup in their most recent editions, losing on penalties to Liverpool in the finals.
When should Boehly fans and Blues fans mark their calendars for the following dates? Here is a quick look at the upcoming season’s schedule.

Predictions & odds for Chelsea in the Premier League
Tottenham’s return to the top four means that the club joins Chelsea as third favorites for the title ahead of the new season as bookmakers take into account the 2021/22 Premier League table when quoting odds on who will win the title in 2022/23.
As Tuchel has dealt with a period of uncertainty at Stamford Bridge, challenging reigning champions Manchester City and Liverpool, who finished 18 points ahead of Chelsea in second, would be a notable feat.

Here is a list of Chelsea best and worst finishes in the Premier League
Under Antonio Conte, who is currently the Spurs manager, Chelsea has won five Premier League titles, the most recent of which was in 2016/17.
In 2004/05 and 2005/06, Jose Mourinho guided Chelsea to successive titles, signaling an abrupt change in English football, as Roman Abramovich’s wealth ushered in a flurry of transfers as the club’s former owner began to spend more and more money.
