The Clarets opted for weaker opposition in pre-season, but nonetheless did well to win four of five fixtures, defeating very good Celta Vigo side in final warm-up game. That, in fact, he thrives on it.

Chelsea kick off their Premier League title defence at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, as they play host to Sean Dyche's Burnley.

"I don't think I need to adapt to the Premier League, but to my new coach".

Unlike the last time they won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, Conte has chosen to strengthen his side with some big money signings.

He said: "I must admit, it's a very important amount".

Contained within these remarks is a reminder to the Chelsea hierarchy to get a move on in recruitment.

No wonder the Italian coach cuts a frustrated figure heading into the start of Chelsea's Premier League title defense.

A Chelsea spokesperson then intervened, saying: "Nothing to report on that".

Danny Rose and Danny Drinkwater this week joined the lengthy list of names to which the champions have been linked this summer, alongside ongoing targets such as Juventus's Alex Sandro and Internazionale's Antonio Candreva.

Here he picks his Premier League teams to beat, bolter to watch out for and the clubs set for relegation. "But I've already adapted and I'm excited to play". Despite his instant success at the club, a recent deal signed by Conte did not extend his tenure, while a publicised dispute with Costa resulted in the star striker's isolation and likely exit.

"Matic is a fantastic player, a real top player", he said. This will no doubt have supporters worrying - as the Blues were dispatched by Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in the preseason - before a sluggish effort against Arsenal saw them defeated on penalties in the Community Shield.

British media reported that the text was not appreciated because it weakened Chelsea's bargaining position after it was made public, but Conte denied there being tension between himself and Roman Abramovich, the club's owner. "After that we lost our composure and conceded three goals", Conte said. I don't like to speak through the press. "With me I am used to it". It's very hard to judge young players only through the training session. Again, the coded message. "It's the most competitive league in the world and it's becoming more competitive as we go on", he insisted. Last season the Blues had around 38 players out on loan. Whether it's a home game, you could take a chance and start with zero, and so ... Michy is putting 120% into every moment during training and in the game. He is a player valued the most by his teammates, as opposed to their fanbase, and Bakayoko has his work cut out trying to replicate his stony brilliance when he returns in September.

In the end, there was no third goal for the nine men. The striker is an important role. They were the best team by far last season and I still think a lot of that quality is there, ' said the 39-year-old former England global, who is now a BT Sport pundit.

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