Antonio Conte explains what Chelsea have to do to be Champions

Pep Guardiola confirms John Stones injury blow

Asked about City's summer recruitment, the Italian said: "I was anxious because they were working very well in all aspects".

"If you want to try to fight for the title, it's very important to win and not to drop points". Not only on the pitch, but off it as well.

"Manchester City will be a great danger now only for this League, but for the whole world because I think they can fight to win everything".

Chelsea's title triumph was built on a 13-league game winning run last autumn, with the form of defender David Luiz key to the success.

"It was a technical decision and every single player has to react well and accept my decision".

The Blues boss was frosty when questioned about his relationship with the centre-back, maintaining Luiz was excluded for "tactical reasons" against Manchester United.

It's easy to understand why Conte is deflecting away from queries about his relationship with Luiz.

Meanwhile, both Andreas Christensen and teenager Ethan Ampadu, who replaced him the starting XI and squad respectively, have been away on worldwide duty with Denmark and Wales.

OnePlus 5T vs. Samsung Galaxy Note8 - The flagship killer strikes again
Due to go on sale on November 21, the handset features some interesting wallpapers that were once again created by Hampus Olsson . OnePlus 5T has been launched after much anticipation as an upgrade over the company's previous flagship, OnePlus 5 .

It's the same path as [Andreas] Christensen, who played for two years on loan and now he's playing regularly for Chelsea. "He's young but an important Chelsea player".

"For sure, he's only 21 years old, but he's playing with great maturity".

The decisive goal in the title win at The Hawthorns was scored by Michy Batshuayi, who is out with an ankle problem.

Midfield: Victor Moses is still working his way back to full fitness following a hamstring injury and he isn't expected to be ready to start just yet so Davide Zappacosta could keep his place in the right wing-back position.

Luiz is believed to have asked for Gary Cahill to move from his usual left-sided role in the back three, with disastrous consequences, though his fall out with Conte never came close to matching the bust-up the Italian had with Diego Costa.

The midfielder was criticised in some quarters, but former Italy boss Conte can not fathom why. "The player was clear and intelligent".

"At the same time I think that we have to respect his professional decision, and I wish for him and his family the best for the present and the future".
