Antonio Conte 'not looking for sympathy' over size of Chelsea squad

Gary Neville: Nemanja Matic's Man United arrival from Chelsea 'strange' Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

"It will be hard, with the quality of their players, their fan base and the money that they can spend, but that's the Premier League".

Asked why he was down on his team's prospects, Conte again eluded to transfer business when he replied: "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

The hitman - who won two league titles with Juventus before doing the La Liga-Champions league double a year ago - added: "I wish I could put more than 20!" They finished last season with a bit of a damp squib.

Ronald Koeman has admitted that Barkley could leave Everton this season, with Tottenham said to be very interested in signing the midfielder. Manchester City to win the title, Manchester United as runners-up and Chelsea placing third.

"Maybe I'm talking out of turn, I would have thought so but there is no getting away from the fact that if you look at the back of the programme from the weekend (the squad is small)". And then I repeat: "the club is trying to do their best on the transfer market".

Burnley could not have wished for a tougher return to Premier League action as they make the trip to London to face defending champions Chelsea.


Spurning interest from his former club Chelsea, Lukaku opted to join Manchester United in a £75 million deal that was a record for a transfer between British clubs.

"In the Premier League you can not afford to let it slip, you have to be ready from the first game until the end". They have a number of new players still likely adjusting to Conte's philosophy and it should be interesting to see how they cope without the talismanic Eden Hazard.

Manager Antonio Conte does not appear to be one of those displeased with the Spanish worldwide, who says his relationship with the Italian convinced him to leave Real Madrid.

"Towards the back end of last season, he couldn't get in their team". They need one that is going to score the goals. Antonio is not only asking me to make the usual moves of a striker. But do I feel sorry for Chelsea as they don't have enough problems?

If a team wins a match, it gets 3 points.

"I'm sure there would have been meetings in preseason between Conte and his players letting them know that". They were the best team by far last season and I still think a lot of that quality is there, ' said the 39-year-old former England worldwide, who is now a BT Sport pundit. "I think we just have to accept it and move on".
