Club Are Trying Best In Transfer Market - Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte

Ahead of Chelsea's Premier League opener tomorrow at home to Burnley (3pm), Conte said: "I think I am the coach of this team, my aim is to improve the players".

The Italian tactician used the opportunity to once again allude to the Blues' poor work in the transfer market, having publicly stated his dissatisfaction over a lack of signings several times this summer.

Chelsea have been active in the transfer market, signing striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, plus defender Antonio Rudiger, goalkeeper Willy Caballero and Tiemoue Bakayoko, the midfielder bought from Monaco before Nemanja Matic was sold to rivals Manchester United. It's right not to put Chelsea to be a favourite, ' he said.

"It wasn't a fantastic year for United or Pogba, but it was successful in the end and that is all that matters", adds Lampard, as he passed judgement on the midfielder United paid £89m to sign from Juventus last summer.

In the past two seasons, Chelsea and Leicester City have sacked their managers less than a year after winning the title.

"I don't like to speak to this question and send message to the press".

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. "I know now twice as many people look at me", he said. I think the club is trying to do their best.

"It's the start of the Premier League and it's very important for us".

"My only task is to be focused [on matters] on the pitch".

The players showed a good form in the pre-season where they've won five games and drew two times, but anything more than honorable defeat at Stamford Bridge would be a massive surprise.

The German could well be handed a Premier League debut on Saturday if Conte's training session on Thursday is anything to go by. I need to understand Conte well, he demands the opposite to what my past coaches asked of me.

"Alvaro is working well but he needs time to understand and adapt to our style of football, above all because he's a striker".
