"I've got no problem picking him", said Pardew. I have to learn a lot from the other coaches, the other managers, in that aspect. About mentality also. About the desire, the will to fight, and the tactical aspects. Yes. "I can speak about him very well, as a person and a coach".

When it was put to Conte that he might be too adept at improving players for his own good when it comes to convincing his clubs to spend more, he replied: "You are not the first person to suggest this, to tell me this".

"My task is to try to improve every single player, in every aspect". Usually, in my experience, I reached the best results possible with the players I have to work with.

"Coming out of the end of February it's important that we're in a good position in these competitions but it's all still there for us to play for".

The 48-year-old's future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months.

Maybe Chelsea are not the only London club who the former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique could be taking charge of.

You may be asking yourself 'but won't Chelsea get Enrique now?'.

Asked if he thought Chelsea's current squad could be improved, Conte said: "I don't know". When I was the coach of Juventus, he was Roma's coach. Yes. I have spoken with him.

Her favorite flavor: vanilla Swiss almond. "I just wrote 'Chloe, it's time to be a dragon, '" he said. Now four others have, including their American teammates Arielle Gold and Maddie Mastro .

"I have great admiration for Luis Enrique and, sometimes, he is a fantastic coach".

"We do this job, and our job is not "difficult", but you must be open and understand the situation can change". A club can take different decisions. But I am not jealous or envious of other managers.

Chelsea vs West Brom Premier League match will be live on Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD.

Reluctance to offer big money deals in a similar fashion to Manchester City or United has been a long time point of contention behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge, but has quickly come to the foreground following disappointing defeats to Bournemouth and Watford.

Chelsea signed three players in the January transfer window, adding to the seven purchased last summer.

He's been a big miss because he's a big character on the pitch and he can change the destiny of games, not so much with his ability sometimes - but with his character, when you've got one of those at the top of the pitch they're very hard to replace. 'When you've got one of those at the top of the pitch they're very hard to replace'. Antonio Conte's men have endured a shaky run of form in the past couple of weeks as they continue to slide down the Premier League table. 'The job he did previous year was absolutely outstanding and I don't think he's changed too much.

"But you can not fault his record and the job he's done since he came to the Premier League".

West Brom also have their troubles.
