- Picture by Action Images via Reuters LONDON, Aug 5 ― Premier League champions Chelsea face FA Cup holders Arsenal in the Community Shield at Wembley tomorrow.

On paper some of the Wolves players look too good for the Championship but whether they're suited to it is an entirely different question.

The Gunners are comfortable at Wembley, but Chelsea have shown recent flashes of brilliance in recent weeks.

"Arsenal are a good team", he said.

"Arsenal will always give goals away because they are an attack-minded team but they were not clinical enough last season". They also start a season not in the Champions League for the first time since 1997-98 after finishing fifth last season.

Pre-season is done, the talking is over and the football is back. "He has advantages and disadvantages on both sides going into a situation like that".

Morata will be tasked as the primary No. 9 by Conte, and his productivity will be expected to bring immediate success. Furthermore, the game was won with a beautiful curling shot from ex-Stoke City player Steven N'Zonzi, which could only be applauded by the Emirates Stadium.

A total of 27 players - the highest number since the days of 42-game seasons - made it into double figures in 2012/13.

"That's normal to live with, but I want to focus on my job and do as well as I can and win absolutely every competition". The Blues finished 18 points ahead of Arsenal last season and Conte has conducted some excellent business in the transfer market this summer.

Despite spending over £100 million on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, Conte believes his squad is painfully short of strength in depth.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that the race for the Premier League title this season will be "very open". The man he could replace - Victor Moses - had a torrid afternoon trying to handle him in the FA Cup final, making only two tackles before being sent off in the second half. The Chile international returned from an extended break at the beginning of August and has recovered from a bout of flu, but has looked in high spirits in training.

Sky Sports, the home of Premier League football, will show 126 live top-flight games in 2017/18 and mobile users will once again be able to see in-game goals and match highlights.

"We know it will be difficult next season and we will try and avoid what happened to Mourinho's side at the start of 2015", he said during a pre-season tour of Asia.

As it stands, Arsenal has had a positive transfer window signing two top-quality first team players, namely the powerful wing-back Sead Kolasinac from FC Schalke 04 and deadly-finisher Alexandre Lacazette from Olympique Lyon in a club record €53 million deal.
