Chelsea manager Antonio Conte discusses Nemanja Matic sale, hints at board decision
Chelsea begin their title defence at home against Burnley on Saturday and Conte expects tougher campaign than the one before.
Winning the trophy this season would make Chelsea the first team to retain the Premier League since Manchester United in 2009, and Lampard believes it would be an even more impressive achievement now.
Despite Arsenal seeing the lowest level of price growth in the league, rivals Tottenham have seen prices increase by 4.5% in the previous year, handing them the bragging rights off the pitch at least.
Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United are all looking to bridge the gap this year in what looks like an open title race.
The Clarets have just sold Andre Gray to Watford for £18 million to rob Dyche of his key striker on the eve of the new campaign.
"Sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market", Conte told British broadcaster Sky Sports, "and sometimes you must accept different decisions".
In the United States, the game between Chelsea and Burnley will be broadcast live on NBCSN and viewers also have the option to stream live online using the NBC Sports app.

The champions have so far signed the likes of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata and Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, but Conte has insisted Chelsea still to strengthen before the transfer window closes on August 31.
Yet, with the money they have spent, United have no excuse not to be amongst the elite Premier League clubs and battling for both the league and the Champions League next season.
"They are very different".
After several long months, the Premier League finally returns at the weekend and celebrates its 25th birthday on Tuesday.
"I think I have for sure a good relationship with the club, with my owner", he said.
Though Tottenham finished in second place on the Premier League standings last season, some feel that they do not have the depth to go all the way this season as they are the only club in the top flight that have yet to make a new signing. We are the most physical league.
It is also likely a reason why several of the names Chelsea are now being linked with in the final weeks of the transfer window - most notably Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Drinkwater, Ross Barkley and Virgil van Dijk - are known Premier League quantities.
"So we stayed to watch it and the next minute Jose was walking towards us - I didn't know what he was going to do and then he stretched out to give the medal to him".
