Chelsea will take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League match on 14th August at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are coming fresh in this home encounter after a UEFA Super Cup victory over Villarreal. The Blues played three pre-season friendly, defeating Bournemouth and Arsenal and drawing with Tottenham Hotspur.
Lukaku’s arrival has strengthened their team, and they will be looking to improve on their fourth-place result from last season.
Crystal Palace, who are now managed by former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, finished 14th for the second year in a row last season.
The London club has had a hectic pre-season schedule, playing five times and winning four of them, including a 3-1 win against Watford in their most recent friendly, but Vieira will be mindful of the task his team will face against Chelsea.
Chelsea and Crystal Palace have met on 58 occasions with Chelsea winning 31 games to Crystal Palace’s 12 victories. They last encountered in the Premier League 2020/21 with Chelsea winning the match 4-1.
