Key Moments Goal

* Aug 2: Baba Rahman departs Chelsea for Schalke in a season-long loan.

* Aug 3: Mohamed Salah officially completes his permanent transfer to AS Roma for €15 million. His time at Chelsea was largely spent on loan back in Italy at Fiorentina and Roma.

* Aug 5: Papy Djilobodji leaves the Blues after one year for Sunderland in an £8 million deal. The defender signed for the Blues as an alternative to John Stones on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2015, and his Chelsea career spans a measly one minute in a League Cup match against Walsall.

* Aug 12: Bertrand Traore’s impressive pre-season displays earned him a new three-year contract, but he is not to feature in Conte’s first season as Chelsea manager having been loaned out to Ajax.

* Aug 15: Antonio Conte marks his first competitive Chelsea game with a narrow 2-1 win against West Ham, with Diego Costa scoring a late winner.

* Aug 25: 33-year-old goalkeeper Eduardo joins Chelsea on a one-year deal to act as third-choice cover after Courtois and Begovic.

* Aug 27: Thibaut Courtois manages to finally halt a run of 13 home Premier League matches without keeping a clean sheet with a 1-0 victory against Burnley.

* Aug 30: Chelsea’s forward line shrinks further with the news that both Loic Remy and Kenedy will spend the season out on loan, to Crystal Palace and Watford respectively.

* Aug 31: Matt Miazga is loaned to Vitesse for the year, whilst Juan Cuadrado is loaned to Juventus for three years.

* Aug 31: Incoming are ex-Bolton left-back Marcos Alonso for £23 million and the returning David Luiz for £30 million, having only left the Blues for Paris Saint-Germain two summers before.
