The Blues’ most recent competitive match was the FA Cup Final against the Gunners, which they lost 2-1, and the pre-season fixture schedule that has been confirmed means the London duo will have met three times in all between their most recent and next Premier League games.

For their summer tour, Antonio Conte’s side are heading to the Far East where they will play three matches in total, the first of them being against Arsenal at the Beijing International Stadium in the Chinese capital on Saturday July 22.

Chelsea will then move on for their first ever trip to Singapore, where they are involved in two fixtures in that republic’s edition of the 2017 International Champions Cup.

The first of those, on Tuesday July 25, is against Bayern Munich whom Chelsea famously beat on penalties in the Germans’ own stadium to win the Champions League in 2012. Bayern subsequently gained a modicum of revenge by triumphing in a spot-kick shootout to lift the UEFA Super Cup the following year.

Four days later, also at the Singapore National Stadium, Chelsea will take on Inter Milan who reportedly wanted to make Blues boss Antonio Conte their new manager this summer, instead appointing Luciano Spalletti.

The only previous competitive meeting between Chelsea and Inter was in the 2010 Champions League round-of-16 when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the Italian club and knocked out his previous and future employers on the way to securing the trophy.

After flying back to England, Chelsea have the chance to gain revenge on Arsenal for their FA Cup Final defeat when they meet at Wembley again in the FA Community Shield.

Three of Chelsea’s four victories in the Community Shield have come since the turn of this century, in 2000, 2005 and 2009, but they have lost on their last three appearances in the traditional curtain-raiser to the season against Manchester United, Manchester City and, in 2015, 1-0 to Arsenal.
