  • Arsene Wenger 'has sympathy' for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte

Costa, who scored 20 goals last season as the Blues won the Premier League glory, has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid who are now under a transfer ban.

Some pundits have suggested that Conte's side aren't favourites to retain their title, and as he pointed out the lack of depth in the Blues squad the Italian affirmed that he agrees with their assessment. "This season, at this moment, I agree with people who think this".

The German could well be handed a Premier League debut on Saturday if Conte's training session on Thursday is anything to go by.

An argument can be made that, despite spending more than $156 million on players during the summer transfer window, the team isn't better than last year's version. We have to go and to fight to try to win with these players.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he has "sympathy" for Antonio Conte over the size of his squad, but believes that his Chelsea counterpart has made his own problems. "I have great consideration for this player because he is top quality but I repeat I am the coach and I can give my opinion but the final decision is always the club's", Conte told the Daily Star. "He's playing every game from the start [in preseason] and it's very important for him to play well".

"It's very hard to repeat (a title)".

It's hardly a secret that Chelsea are anxious about the size of their squad, with Conte mentioning it over and over again - and the issue also being brought up by Gary Cahill during his recent words to the press - and the Chelsea skipper did not seem happy.

'If the club decides to loan out players for their development it is because they're not ready to play for Chelsea'.

Chelsea have recruited Antonio Rudiger from Roma, Monaco's Ligue 1-winning midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and also broke their transfer record to sign striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

"Sometimes you have the possibility to spend money, sometimes you don't have the possibility to spend money".

"He's a good player, strong, good personality, technique", he said. "It's important to try and do our best". "He's working very well and starting to understand our idea of football".
