"I think this player is a good prospect for the Chelsea team, for the present and for the future", Conte explained to David Jones in an interview with Sky Sports Premier League.

And after their defeat on penalties in the Community Shield, Carragher said he thinks it is unlikely that Conte will still be in charge next year.

And Reds legend Scholes, who, it's fair to say, knows a thing or two about central midfielders, believes Matic's arrival represents one of the best pieces of business of the summer.

Chelsea's current squad now contains just 24 registered players, while Arsenal's, the Blues' opponents this past weekend, was nearly double that, at 41.

"[They have improved from last year] in the way they work in the training session".

At the other end of the table, it's bad news for Huddersfield in their inaugural Premier League season - with a predicted immediate return to the Championship, joined by Watford and Burnley. "He's beginning to understand what I expect from him during games", Conte said.

The Blues shattered their club transfer record to sign Morata from Real Madrid last month. "Last season they had a good season and we have to pay great attention tomorrow", the Italian said. My idea was to give Bakayoko the right time to adapt in this league behind Matic.

Souness feels the attacking midfielder is likely to leave Anfield, but can not see Jurgen Klopp's side challenging for one of this season's biggest two trophies even if they keep the 25-year-old.

Chelsea have signed Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Real Madrid striker Real Madrid this summer. "I had the benefit of realising how good he is when he's playing just in front of you, on and off the ball", said the England worldwide to Sky Sports on Wednesday. Former Everton striker, now with Manchester United finished second on 25 goals while Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez scored 24 to hold the third position.

"With the players and the characters we have in the building we won't let it".

"I think he's the type of manager who won't accept the involvement from people above, especially on the back of winning the title".

" I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
