Conte desperate to improve Chelsea squad

Premier League 2017-18 season sees two Manchester clubs as favorites

Chelsea have signed Spain forward Alvaro Morata

Ex-Chelsea striker, Hernan Crespo, says Nigerian winger Victor Moses is playing his best football at the moment under Antonio Conte. I'm sure he will be thinking even harder this season because of past year.

Souness feels the attacking midfielder is likely to leave Anfield, but can not see Jurgen Klopp's side challenging for one of this season's biggest two trophies even if they keep the 25-year-old.

Burnley won just one game on the road last season.

Across the last six times these teams have come toe-to-toe, both at Stamford Bridge and Turf Moor, it is a similar story of Chelsea's dominance.

"Every game becomes tough". Then again, Conte would want to make an impression in the Champions League and it's going to be interesting to see how he juggles between the two competitions.

Frank Lampard spoke exclusively to ESPN FC.

Failure to land top transfer target Romelu Lukaku as well as strengthening rivals Manchester United by selling them midfield enforcer Matic are only two of the setbacks the club has had to endure in the current transfer window. They have the opportunity to momentarily help us forget about their failed transfer dealings this summer.

The team struggles to adjust, flames out of the Champions League early and struggles to finish in the top four after a shaky start.

"I think he's more skilful than Costa".

Goal difference is the difference between how many goals a team has scored, and how many goals have been scored against them.

The Italy global has been heavily linked with a move back to Italy after a below-par campaign at Old Trafford last season.

"It's a great challenge for us to try and retain the title, but we are working hard".

"I think it's a challenge on all fronts".

"I can see him walking".

Over the last 20 years, Chelsea have outscored their opening day opponents 48-18.

Chelsea's number of available players has decreased, and it is now open to question whether they have the bodies - and the goals - to retain their title.

Conte has, however, been left frustrated by an apparent reluctance to build on that success.

While one could argue that these are all quality signings, there is no doubt that Chelsea boasts a weaker squad than last season, following what felt like a fire-sale of players this summer.

'But they have a superb manager in charge.

"Burnley had a terrible record on the road last season and I feel they will continue to struggle this term with goals likely to be at a premium".

"The next year I had some offers from overseas and took the step towards Manchester City and had another great year".

Tottenham Hotspur has kept away from all the shopping, but I'm not sure for how long. Amid the big spending Manchester clubs and Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, few observers gave the Blues a realistic chance of reclaiming the title - yet the Italian sparked a revival in West London. They've gone down a certain route with strength in their team and they are potential winners.
