All Premier League clubs including Chelsea have begun their pre-season ahead of the 2021-22 season to come in August.

The Blues will look to replicate their success in Europe last season on to the Premier League this time out.

Fans in India will be able to stream almost all of Chelsea's pre-season games free of charge via The 5th Stand app and the official Chelsea website, with details on when the free stream will commence also to be confirmed on the Blues' official website before all games.

Here are the reigning European champions' pre-season results:

17th July - Chelsea 6-1 Peterborough United

28th July - 00:15am - Bournemouth 1-2 Chelsea

1st August - 19:30pm - Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea

5th August: 00:15am - Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham

After these pre-season games, the Blues will head to Windsor Park in Belfast to take on Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup on 12th August at 00:30am Indian Standard Time.

Players involved in pre-season

Chelsea will be without quite a few main players for the pre-season ahead of their preparations for the new Premier League season.

Christian Pulisic has been involved in pre-season action already alongside players like Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech.

Good news for Chelsea fans is that a lot of loaned out players from last season are also being tried out by Tuchel, who joined the club in January.

This means that players like Conor Gallagher, Baba Rahman, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Danny Drinkwater, Malang Sarr, Davide Zappacosta and some others will surely get a chance to impress Tuchel and gain their entry into the first-team squad next season.

Once the pre-season is done and dusted on August 5th, the Blues will begin rigourous training with their full first squad including key players returning from holiday as Tuchel aims to target the Premier League crown for the 2021-22 season.

The Blues kick off their campaign against Crystal Palace on August 14 in the Premier League.
