Conte: Chelsea's commitment is better than last season

Matic would have been the solid incumbent in the role, leaving Bakayoko domestic cups to prove himself.

"A big danger for clubs coming up is that second season syndrome, and you don't want to fall into that category", he said.

"There's responsibility on Bakayoko not just to bring the talents that he has - and he has many - but also the discipline to fit into the system".

Mee believes that Chelsea's new striker Alvaro Morata, who joined from Spanish champions Real Madrid last month, could pose a threat to Burnley defenders but is confident that team will come up with and stick to a solid game plan. What happens in the transfer market, the club is trying to do their best.

"That's the pressure he probably hasn't had".

"I think in his career he had some bad moments because he had some small injuries". I don't like to speak through the press.

The Reds signed Dominic Solanke from Chelsea earlier this summer-how do you think he will do at Anfield? He will need to get used to the Premier League but then he will perform. He won't have had anything like it in Italy or Spain.

Things are more comfortable on the personal front for Conte, who recently signed a new, improved contract and will have his family - wife Elisabetta and daughter Vittoria - living with him in London this season. "He's working very well and starting to understand or idea of football".

I think they overachieved last season and unless Jurgen Klopp is going to sign a couple of world-class defenders and a goalkeeper, I can not see Liverpool challenging for the title.

"With Costa not involved you have taken away 20 goals and someone has to replicate that", said Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal between 1991 and 1998. "It's gone beyond now and it's time [for him] to go".

"We played against a very good side". This team should not struggle in this match since they are at home and are by far the better side but I think they might have problems later on in the season. This is the season they are expected to deliver and while both may play down their chances, a lacklustre title challenge could spell serious doom for their reputations.

"I repeat: my only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players".

But United's gain is very much Chelsea's loss and not only does their spine appear more fragile, it's also hard to understand Chelsea's reasoning behind the deal with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Nathaniel Chabolah also leaving the club.
