The 2016–17 season was Chelsea's 103rd competitive season, 28th consecutive season in the top flight of English football, 25th consecutive season in the Premier League, and 111th year in existence as a football club.

They entered this season looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015–16 campaign, when they finished 10th in the table.

The new formation featured a back-three pairing of Gary Cahill, David Luiz and César Azpilicueta, with two wing-backs providing cover in the form of Marcos Alonso on the left-hand side and Victor Moses on the right-hand side.

After spending a season-and-a-half on loan at Udinese, Udinese activated a clause in Stipe Perica's contract to sign him permanently.

In June, Chelsea submitted a total of three bids for Roma's Radja Nainggolan, with the third reportedly valued at €40 million; the player ultimately decided to stay after receiving an improved contract from Roma the following month.

Two Liverpool goals in the first half, from Dejan Lovren's close range finish and Jordan Henderson's thunderous 25-yard strike, put the game out of reach for the hosts, who managed to peg one goal back through Diego Costa.

On 20 September, Chelsea beat Leicester City 4–2 after extra-time to advance into the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

The hosts put in a domineering performance against the champions, with Diego Costa opening the scoring for Chelsea in the seventh minute.

Two further goals followed from Eden Hazard and Victor Moses to inflict Leicester's fourth consecutive away league defeat.

The win was also Arsenal's first against Chelsea in the league since October 2011.

After suffering back-to-back Premier League losses to top-four rivals Liverpool and Arsenal, Antonio Conte switched to and debuted a 3–4–3 formation against Hull City on the 1 October which earned him a 2–0 victory, thanks to a goal apiece from Willian and Diego Costa.

On 16 September, Chelsea suffered their first defeat of the season at home, as Liverpool won 2–1 at Stamford Bridge.
