"One of the issues is that striker Diego Costa, last season's top scorer, remains in exile".
"He's faced something similar this season, but he's highlighted all the issues where he felt they weren't good enough and he's rooted them out".
Costa will definitely miss Chelsea's clash with Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (12 August), while Conte confirmed his compatriot Pedro will also sit out of the encounter with Sean Dyche's men after suffering an ankle injury against Arsenal in the Community Shield.
"We have to rest well because we have a very important game on Sunday against West Ham", Matic said.
'You don't want to come to a club and behave like you are passing through.
He's available, can we get him?' I think Chelsea more often than not have backed their managers and brought in the players needed.
We've seen it with Nathan Ake, who scored a late victor against Liverpool last season to help Bournemouth to a 4-3 victory.
"Alvaro is working well, improving a lot his physical condition and starting to understand what I want about him".
"With Costa not involved you have taken away 20 goals and someone has to replicate that", said Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal between 1991 and 1998. I personally think that Chelsea is weaker than last reason because Morata is not a proven Premier League forward and losing Deigo Costa will hit them hard.
