Arsene Wenger 'has sympathy' for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says Alvaro Morata is yet to start for the club because playing adapting to his style of play as a striker is "more difficult" than in other positions.

Will Chelsea's Antonio Conte make it back to back trophies, or will Pep Guardiola guard Manchester City to the title?

The reigning Premier League champions were in high spirits as they took part in an official photo shoot at Cobham yesterday before their first game of the new season against Burnley. "In a way, I was indebted to him".

It was Conte who pushed for the deal that saw Morata move to Juventus in the summer of 2014, and the 24-year-old has detailed how he feels he owes the Chelsea manager for believing in his ability.

Morata did himself no favours by failing to convert his penalty in last weekend's Community Shield shootout defeat at Wembley.

"I admit it's a very important amount (the fee) but I have personality to play quietly and go my way,"Morata told Marca, as reported by the Metro".

'It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer. I left because I want to succeed in football, to do great things.

The same story claims that Chelsea have been "extensively" scouting the defender and watched him closely when he played for Portugal at the European Under-21 championships this summer. "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly previous year but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".

"Conte doesn't me to move as a classic centre-forward, he wants more from me".

"I really like the Matic signing", he said in an exclusive BT Sport Facebook Live ahead of Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup.

"At the start I wasn't aware that he had so much interest in signing me, but when I understood it then I had no doubts and [Chelsea] was my preference". "But you know very well that there are surprises".

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
