Nemanja Matic Sale a Casualty of "Crazy Transfer Market", Says Antonio Conte

An ankle knock Pedro sustained in the Community Shield penalty shootout loss to Arsenal could mean Morata will start alongside Michy Batshuayi, who scored the decisive goal in Chelsea's title success at West Brom in May. "But if you look at the number of players on loan, they can call a few back".

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte may have recently agreed an improved two-year contract at Stamford Bridge, however, things are still far from ideal at the club, according to Neville.

Conte is said to be a big fan of the England global and is looking to land the 23-year-old, who has a year left on his Gunners contract, for £35million.

"But do I feel sorry for Chelsea as they don't have enough problems?"

"And I do not think he likes it and I do not think he agrees with it because he said he has to strengthen now and fill that gap".

"The situation is clear". I'm not looking for sympathy.

"We are trying to improve. If the club decide to send on loan players for their development it's because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea". "It's harder to win games comfortably and I don't think you're going to see teams have the sort of dominance that Manchester United and Liverpool enjoyed in past years". "But sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market, and sometimes you must accept different decisions".

Eagles trade Jordan Matthews to Buffalo for CB
Wide receiver Sammy Watkins was sent to the Rams from Buffalo as the centerpiece of a big day of trading for the Bills. Matthews had three catches for 18 yards Thursday in the Eagles' 24-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Nemanja Matic's name is echoing strongly at Chelsea over the past couple of weeks as it becomes apparent that Antonio Conte might have been against his sale to Manchester United.

"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".

Antonio Conte arrived to Stamford Bridge needing to piece together a squad in tatters, following a disastrous 10th place finish on the ladder as the defending champions in the campaign prior.

"He's starting to understand what I want (from) him during the game", Conte said.

"He needs time. The striker is an important role". And when asked this week whether it would difficult to hold onto their crown without more signings, he said, "Yes very hard".

Victor Moses is suspended following his dismissal in last seasons FA Cup final while Bakayoko isn't available to make his debut as he's still working his way back to fitness from a knee injury.
