Chelsea team predicted: Expected Chelsea line up for Burnley clash

He has complained about the lack of transfer activity despite signing Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger in the window, but other deals have gone awry for the Blues.

Too many parallels already to 2010-11 and 2015-16, i.e. the last two seasons that Chelsea entered as champions only to descend into discord and disarray by December, if not earlier.

"[Conte] is a coach who works hard every day, works a lot of tactics and the physical part".

" I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league". All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League. Chelsea could certainly use an upgrade at left back and Rose is arguably the best player in the Premier League at that spot. "We need more players, not top level like Neymar but more players to improve our squad and our quality".

The defending champions will make a return to Champions League football this season and will also attempt to retain the English Premier League.

"For me, it will be the most difficult season of my career", Conte said just a few weeks ago.

During Sunday's Community Shield clash with Arsenal, Conte was short of experienced options among his substitutes, with youngsters Charly Musonda, Andreas Christensen, Kyle Scott and Jeremie Boga making up more than half of an inexperienced bench.

New kids on the block: Alexandre Lacazette - Lyon, Sead Kolasinac - Schalke.

Reports from the Metro suggest that Chelsea are now seriously considering a move for Everton star - Ross Barkley, who is also a primary target for Tottenham Hotspur and is currently valued at £25 million. We'll see how that plays out, but we just have to keep everybody fit and keep everybody sharp.

There have been speculations that Arsene Wenger would be walking away when his contract runs out towards the end of the last season.

I expect Chelsea to play Conte's favourite formation the 3-4-3 with Thibaut Courtois in goal, Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta as the back 3, Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses as the wing backs with Bakayoko and Kante in central midfield, finally, they will have Hazard, Morata and Pedro up top. "If you want to contend for the league, they'll have to strengthen".

Faced with steering Chelsea through such choppy waters, perhaps it is not surprising Conte has cut a restless figure since returning from his Mediterranean cruise.
