Chelsea Fixtures: Maresca Reign Begins With Man City Meeting  (Sky Sports)

Premier League FixturesEnzo Maresca will host former club Manchester City in his first Premier League game as Chelsea head coach.

Chelsea also look set for a daunting May, closing their top-flight campaign with games against Liverpool, Newcastle and Man Utd, before travelling to Nottingham Forest on the final day on Sunday May 25.
