Conte Predicts Tough Season for Chelsea

Conte Predicts Tough Season for Chelsea

Conte joined Chelsea last summer after leaving his role with the Italian national team and in his first season with the club he led them to the Premier League title.

Indeed, Carragher cites Matic's sale to Manchester United as a prime example of why Conte might leave the club.

However, Conte has recently said that his debut season as the Blues boss was the hardest in his managerial career which has continued as he vented his frustration over the club's inactivity in the transfer window.

Chelsea have a net spend estimated at only 22 million pounds, compared to Arsenal's £43 million, Manchester City's £182 million and United's £136 million.

'I don't want to comment too much, ' Simeone said after his side beat Premier League new boys Brighton 3-2.

Conte, whose side begin their Premier League title defence against Burnley on August 12, said: "I haven't great patience".

The issue was highlighted when Frank Lampard held up the programme from the Community Shield against Arsenal at the weekend, the disparity in strength and depth to that of the FA Cup final was evident enough, our squad HAS been significantly weakened in some key areas.

"For many reasons. It's very hard".

They've signed Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger in the summer.

Nemanja Matic and John Terry have departed, Bakayoko and Eden Hazard will miss the start of the season with injuries, and Costa is in exile while Chelsea try to find a buyer following Conte's text message spat with the Spain striker. "But now we have to wait".

"It wasn't the fact they lost yesterday to Arsenal because at times I thought there was some very good football from Chelsea".

'I don't know, the back of the programme was interesting today, ' he said. "Now we have few players".

The wing-back opened the scoring for the Blues in the first minute of the second half at Wembley on Sunday when he darted in to poke home from close range. Their first "official" game however, was evidence of how Conte needs more reinforcements if they are to repeat their fantastic achievements of a year ago. We have already discussed our best Arsenal XI for today and here is the very strong team we have gone for....
