Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is delighted the club has the chance to win SEVEN trophies this season.

Chelsea begin the campaign against Manchester City in the Community Shield at Villa Park on Sunday, take on Atletico Madrid in the Super Cup in Monaco on August 31 and will travel to Tokyo in December to contest the World Club Cup.

These are on top of their usual commitments of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.

Di Matteo said: "These are opportunities and it’s great to be involved in these competitions because we want to win trophies.

"They don’t come around very often and that’s how we will look at it. We will deal with the fixture list. The targets we have are made collectively because football is a tam game.

"I talk to my players individually as well, but it takes a collective effort to achieve our ambitions."
