Conte And Cahill Admit Disappointment In Seeing Matic Leave

Premier League’s biggest and smallest spenders revealed

As a result Chelsea will name several youth and fringe players on the bench for Saturday's match.

There have been quite a few changes in personnel at Stamford Bridge since they lifted the trophy in May and the Blues suffered a defeat in last weekend's Community Shield.

And Reds legend Scholes, who, it's fair to say, knows a thing or two about central midfielders, believes Matic's arrival represents one of the best pieces of business of the summer.

"We must be ready also in this moment, even if many players are missing". "I think he has good prospects for Chelsea - for now and the future".

"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".

The bullying striker moved to Chelsea instead, playing an integral part in their 2 Premier League title triumphs of the last 3 seasons by scoring 52 goals in 89 EPL appearances.

"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.

Ibrahimovic in talks to pen new Manchester United deal
Defeat by Real Madrid in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup match in Skopje was a setback, but Mourinho says his team are ready for the new season.

"I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club - there was the same kind of feeling at Inter [Milan] and at Real Madrid".

"Bakayoko is a good signing for us".

Conte has replaced the outgoing Diego Costa with Alvaro Morata, Nemanja Matic with Tiemoue Bakayoko, Asmir Begovic with Willy Caballero, but he still needs at least four more purchases like new centre-half Antonio Rudiger to actually deepen his squad. "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much. If he doesn't get players in then it wouldn't surprise me if he walked". I think he has good prospects for Chelsea - for now and the future.

The Express report he said: "I think a lot about Costa". We are working very well to try to do this.

"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.

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".
