Chelsea news: Conte confirms Drinkwater debut delayed and fans are not impressed

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has offered little sympathy when it comes to their opponents for this weekend and London rivals, Arsenal.

With Alexis Sanchez scoring a controversial opener for Arsenal and Chelsea's Victor Moses sent off for diving, it was a bitter conclusion to an otherwise perfect first season in charge for Conte.

"And in two, three weeks, four weeks, I don't know", Conte said.

Wenger rotated a lot of players, a lot of players are rested for the game against us.

"We tried to change the game, then a red card, with 10 men we equalised, but then we conceded another goal".

"It's a pity because he was starting to improve his physical condition and also adapt to our idea of football".

Any meeting with London rivals Arsenal is a big moment in Chelsea's season, but those painful losses mean the latest derby at Stamford Bridge carries extra significance for Conte and company.

Leutner managed to crawl to the side of a road where a cyclist found her. "This sounds insane , because it is", McMahon said. Because of the plea, jurors on Friday were examining only whether she was legally responsible because of mental illness.

Arsenal overcame Cologne 3-1 in the Europa League on Thursday and Conte believes Wenger's side remain title challengers. In England there are six top teams and when you play against one of them it's always a massive game.

"I remember when I was a coach of the national team and if you remember well when the terrorist attack we stay with the national team, we must play against Belgium. We have to fight and play against a rival".

The Belgian wing wizard certainly looks pretty sharp in training, posting this video to his Instagram account which hints at just how difficult he can be to cope with.

Conte said: "I think it's very difficult to see him before the international break". I hope this. Then during the game I think win the best.

"When you start the game you try to keep always the right discipline". He needs time to recover. It's an interesting poser for Conte, and his decision could provide pointers to his plans for the balance of the Premier League campaign. If you see their squad you can understand there are a lot of top players.

"They are one of the six top teams in England and are capable of winning the title". I don't understand why they can't fight for the title.
