Chelsea fans left in tears as Man Utd trip opens Premier League 201920 fixtures
The London side now face a season which includes Champions League football.
The Red Devils have ambitions of their own for Europe’s elite tournament.
And the London side face a difficult game in September too, with European champions Liverpool travelling to Stamford Bridge.
Fans’ anger comes as:
United and Spurs then travel to Stamford Bridge in February before Pep Guardiola’s side come in March.
And a potentially season-defining trip to Anfield awaits Chelsea in late May.
But the Blues faithful were left fuming over the decision to start their season with the visit to Old Trafford.
“10th place loading”
“United, for f***s sake,” one supporter said.
Another commented: “Can we not get a break.”
While a third made a worrying prediction for Chelsea’s season.
“10th place loading,” they said.
And a fourth added: “18 points behind by December.”
With a fifth saying: “Can we just move to the second match please.”
