The inaugural Premier League Summer Series USA 2023 comes as good news to Chelsea players and fans after a terrible 2022-23 season. The Londoners spent approximately $600 million on transfers last season but still struggled to win important matches throughout the season.
They began a poor run of form from their last friendly matches, going down 4-0 to rivals Arsenal, 1-0 to Aston Villa, and losing on penalties to Charlotte, a match that saw USMNT star Christian Pulisic score 30 minutes in.
The new boss will utilize this summer break to restructure the team to return to its European pedigree besides giving their US-based fans a chance to watch their stars in action. Last time in the USA, The Blues played against Mexican outfit Club America at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The other match was at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, against Charlotte FC.
