Will Conte survive? Will Wenger turn things around? 10 questions ahead of PL kickoff

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard admits he was surprised by his club's decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, as he hinted the Serbian midfielder was the driving force behind one of the more unexpected transfers of this summer.

What are the odds?

Neymar's departure to Paris Saint-Germain only intensified rumours of Barcelona targeting Philippe Coutinho as his compatriot's replacement.

His presence has always made the Reds a dangerous side going forward, especially on the counter. In a way, I felt indebted to him because I signed for Juventus and he had to go.

Leicester's Danny Drinkwater, Everton's Ross Barkley and Valencia's Joao Cancelo are among the stars to have been linked lately with a move to Stamford Bridge.

"My time at Chelsea is full of great memories". "No news, no news", Conte added when questioned over the Costa situation before being asked when last season's leading scorer might return to the club.

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year". He suggests that they should acquire a 'plan B' to give them 'something slightly different' and more of an attacking edge.

City have spent big this summer on the likes of Ederson, Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy as they look to improve on a disappointing season last time out.

"Pedro is not available because he is suffering from an injury he got during the Arsenal game", Conte said at his pre-match media conference.

"He has somebody in there that will fill the holes when he vacates them, he has licence to go wherever he wants and he [Matic] will provide that stability for the back four".

Will Guardiola and Mourinho rediscover their magic? And it's not finished. "He's working very well and starting to understand or idea of football".

Just three months after lifting the Premier League trophy, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has described the new season as the most "difficult" test of his career.

"I think he has good prospects for Chelsea - for now and the future".

"We have shown progress in that area, which shows the kids have ability". AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are both interested in signing Costa, who is valued at around £40m by Chelsea, but Conte had "no news" regarding a potential transfer.

Wenger believes that Chelsea and their manager have themselves to blame after loaning a lot of young players to other teams. I think I'm the coach of this team. These surprises and the subsequent dropping of vital points against the lesser clubs cost the established sides. Is Tiemoue Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic?
