Conte wants more out of Chelsea

Conte wants more out of Chelsea

The Spain worldwide made his competitive debut as a 74th-minute substitute in the clash with Arsenal at Wembley and missed from 12 yards as his side lost 4-1 to the Gunners in the shoot-out following a 1-1 draw.

Despite making only two pre-season appearances for Antonio Conte's side before the Arsenal clash, Morata came under fire from critics, which he believes is pre-mature and unfair.

"Honestly, I'm pleased because we are working very well with the team and this group of players".

Palace fans started the season with renewed optimism amid De Boer's appointment as manager but they will be anxious by their woeful performanc, which suggests another year of struggle.

"It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer". Chelsea players are not in the best psychological state, the leader is injured in the team, Conte is dissatisfied with the work of management, but for the time being, 85 million euros spent on Morata cause dissatisfaction with the game of the newcomer. I wasn't fresh and I couldn't train well. I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate playing with nine or 10 men in the next game. "If you have the possibility to spend money and improve the quality", he said, "I think this is right way to be competitive and fight for something important".

Speaking earlier in the week, the Chelsea captain admitted that Conte's men, despite recruiting Tiemoue Bakayoko, will miss Matic this season.

Alexandre Lacazette starts for Arsenal in season curtain-raiser against Leicester
Albrighton crossed for Jamie Vardy to put Leicester ahead after Xhaka had gifted the ball straight to him. Lacazette is simple in every game.

"He hasn't proven himself in the Premier League", "He has never started consistently in his career", "He had a poor preseason" - these are just some of the comments I have heard from friends who follow Chelsea and pundits who know a lot about the game. They have be stronger and the squad needs freshening up, which has started to happen and I think will continue to happen. "No news, no news", Conte added when questioned over the Costa situation before being asked when last season's leading scorer might return to the club.

"I've seen managers sacked for less". "In a way, I felt indebted to him because he signed me for Juve and then had to go".

"I am not looking for sympathy from any coaches for this situation. But it was a personal decision: it had to do with sports ambition".

"In my career I always work with real pressure and it's normal". If it had been for my team-mates, I would have stayed.

"I'm not sure that Manchester United are quite at the level to win it yet".
