Antonio Conte places full confidence in Chelsea attacker following £58M move

"It has been a summer of familiar, relentless headlines: of Conte's discontent, frustration and barely concealed anger over the club's transfer dealings; of missed targets; lack of spending; lack of numbers", says Jason Burt of the Daily Telegraph.

Antonio Conte has invested well over £100million on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, but those arrivals have been largely offset by the departure of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United and Diego Costa's exile.

The stats-based Sky Sports Predictor is back for the new season - and it's tipping Tottenham to win the Premier League title.

"You get comfortable, think you've done it after a year - I don't think we'll let that happen here".

"The return to European football, while welcome, will stretch the squad and other teams now have experience of playing against Chelsea's system", says BT Sport.

"Rest is going to be important because we're going to have a lot of games, and we players are in control of the way we prepare ourselves".

The Portuguese boss also disclosed that he will be without three players for Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham . Groves said: " Antonio Conte will not be manager of Chelsea at Christmas - fact".

It leaves Conte's squad looking threadbare and Sunday's Community Shield penalty defeat did little to lift Conte's mood.

Going into Saturday's home match against Burnley, it could even be argued that Chelsea is beginning the season in a weaker position despite a summer outlay of around 140 million pounds (USD180 million).

'If we're talking about quality, I still think Chelsea have that quality.

"There are many reasons which suggest to me that next season will be very tough, the most hard of my career, I have this perception", Conte told the club's website.

"It's the start of the Premier League and it's very important for us".

Lampard believes Matic will help to transform United into Premier League title contenders this season, as he suggested Paul Pogba may be the biggest victor from the arrival of a new holding midfielder who will give him more freedom to get forward.

Kristal had survived the First world War and lived in Lodz, Poland, newly independent, until the nazi invasion in 1939. The only survivor in his family, Kristal later moved to Israel in 1950 with his second wife and their son.

"We scored the first goal and we were close to winning".

In the short term, Chelsea start the season with Eden Hazard and Bakayoko out injured, while Morata is still getting used to his new teammates and may take time to settle.

"And I'm hoping he'll do that with United - freedom for [Paul] Pogba, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan - these players really need to step up this year I think".

"Matic knows very well what I think about him", said Conte.

"Honestly, I am pleased with the squad because we are working very well with the players, the commitment is incredible, better than last season", he said.
