Chelsea have 'problems' but Conte doesn't want sympathy

Conte also claimed he was "not looking for sympathy" over the size of his squad after leading the Blues from 10th the previous campaign to the Premier League trophy in May. They definitely look strong on paper.

Conte put pen to paper on a new contract last month which raised his salary but did not extend his stay in west London. He has been replaced by Alvaro Morata, an expensive acquisition but a player who is yet to hit more than 15 goals in a top-flight season.

Chelsea's lack of progress during the current transfer window has already drawn the ire of manager Antonio Conte and numerous club's fans and now, club captain Gary Cahill has spoken out about the lack of new faces that have arrived at Stamford Bridge, this summer.

"Having said that, I think Manchester is where the title will end up [and] it might well be Manchester United".

"And Conte isn't happy with Michael Emanalo and Marina Granovskaia, who is the director". The Spaniard has been eased in to things by Conte following his big money move from Real Madrid but the Blues boss has hinted he's now ready to start after getting a good weeks training under his belt.

"You can tell by Conte's body language".

"United were crying out for a central midfielder with the qualities of Nemanja Matic".

"I think we played everything so we don't lose this game", the Serbian said after a performance that thoroughly impressed Mourinho.

Groves reckons the disillusionment is not just isolated to Conte ahead of tomorrow's showdown with Burnley though.

The last two English champions both sacked their manager in the midst of title hangovers the following season, with Jose Mourinho axed by Chelsea in 2015 and Claudio Ranieri ousted by Leicester City last term. Chelsea desperately lack strength in depth to successfully compete on four fronts and nobody was surprised to see them lose the Community Shield match to Arsenal.

The 23-year-old England global has just one year left on his contract and with talks having reached an impasse, Conte is confident that a bid in the region of £35 million will be sufficient for Arsenal to sell their man instead of losing him on a free transfer next year.

Conte was asked when Costa might return, but a club spokesman intervened, saying: "Nothing to report on that".

He continued: "Chelsea are two dodgy results away from exploding and imploding at the same time".

"I think he's got all the tools to do that".

Brazilian Gabriel Jesus who shone during his brief show last season, is now fit and raring to go.

But Lampard believes the 24-year-old's determination to force his way out of a comfortable situation in the Spanish capital is a good sign.

"You just do not sell one of your best players".
