Chelsea boss Conte expects six-team Premier League title race

Chelsea boss Conte expects six-team Premier League title race”

Asked by Marca if the price-tag concerned him, Morata replied: "I admit it's a very big amount, but I have the personality to play quietly and go my way".

He said: "It's simple".

That being said, the Blues do not look like adding anyone to the team at the minute, although they are thought to be interested in Danny Rose, should the player wish to leave Tottenham Hotspur - something that is looking increasingly likely after his recent words to the press.

"My focus is on the pitch, training sessions and the players".

"It's the start of the Premier League and it's very important for us".

One of the issues is that striker Diego Costa, last season's top scorer, remains in exile.

Conte, in turn, reportedly ruled out the prospect of selling Matic to United but was rendered powerless by the midfielder's desire to move and Mourinho offering £40m.

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.

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

Alvaro Morata has insisted he's ready to prove wrong those critics who are already "killing me" following his penalty miss in last weekend's Community Shield.

"I like this. To have many teams ready to fight for the title increases the level of this league".

"But he needs time to understand, to adapt to our style of football, above all for a striker".

Victor Moses is banned and Conte has revealed that could see summer arrival Antonio Rudiger make a debut, with the former Roma man lining up on the right side of a three-man defence and Cesar Azpilicueta taking up the right wing-back role usually occupied by Moses.

"For sure they are trying to take another step and to try to fight for the title, to try to fight for the Champions League".
