Asked who he sees as favorite to lift the title come May, Conte replied: 'At the start of the season it is simple to tell that in this league probably there are six top teams who should fight for the title. And it was weird at half time because you have to decide how you're going to approach it from there.

How Chelsea fans reacted on Twitter to Boga being named in the starting XI... Both Jeremie Boga and Charly Musonda have been a part of Chelsea's pre-season tour of the Far East, though it is probable that Conte will opt to play record-signing Alvaro Morata out of position in Hazard's usual spot rather than giving one of the younger players an opportunity. Chelsea were seven points clear, 10 points clear for a large part of the back end of last season.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says that the clubs needs to spend money to replace experienced players like John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic. My aim is to try to improve my players, to try to improve my team. Even in the home game against Chelsea back in February they proved their Premier league worth as they fort back from an early Pedro goal to draw the game 1-1.

Antonio Conte arrived to Stamford Bridge needing to piece together a squad in tatters, following a disastrous 10th place finish on the ladder as the defending champions in the campaign prior.

"I think this is a great possibility for Michy", Conte said. These are the most important things for us.

The former England full-back believes that Antonio Conte's side is now weaker than it was last season, when they won the Premier League, and could not understand the reasoning behind Chelsea letting the Serbian leave for £40million. United and City will be a tougher prospect now Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have something close to their ideal squads.


Sean Dyche is ready for another slog of a season and said: "We've already got that "we'll show you mentality". Mahrez could feature against Arsenal on Friday, but Van Dijk is now training away from the Southampton squad and won't play against Swansea on Saturday.

The Blues' striker will now spend the season on loan at Paul Clement's Swansea City. "I'm not saying they're completely conflicting".

Arsenal - It will be another season of pain for Arsenal with possibly more protests over Arsene Wenger.
