This summer, 12 Chelsea players have already gone out on loan to various teams in the Premier League, Championship and beyond. Endure a trophy-less season and he joins Carlo Ancelotti and Mourinho as Chelsea managers sacked a season after winning the league. "It's not easy. It's very important to try to find the right solution, to try to improve the squad, to improve the quality before we start the season".

Sane's former Schalke team-mates Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Sead Kolasinac have moved to the Premier League this season, joining Stoke City and Arsenal respectively, and the winger believes he could one day return to the Bundesliga club.

"And if they lose Philippe Coutinho, they'll get an enormous figure for him, but at this point of the window, they'll probably end up spending a lot of money on someone they are not sure about to replace him".

And he has made a superb start to life as a Man United player, producing an excellent performance at the base of midfield during his side's 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

Can Chelsea avoid a repeat of their 2015/16 defence of their title when then manager Jose Mourinho was unemployed by Christmas and the champions eventually finished in tenth place? I think they will be beaten in this game. We are not happy that we lost but did everything.

Team-mate Ander Herrera is also desperate to hit the ground running against West Ham.

Conte does what he did at Juventus, and just keeps the team firing and finishing first again to become the first English champions since Manchester United 2008-09 to retain the title.

Man United Will Be Among Europe's Elite in Two Years, Says Mourinho
The Premier League gets underway on Friday and Chelsea return as the defending champions after lifting the trophy last season. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

Below we take a look at five players who have something to prove this season. Having also struggled throughout pre-season, the Blues will have to show serious improvement if they want to kick off the new campaign with a win.

"In every position, we have two very good players, so I am optimistic for this season and let's forget about Madrid". Tottenham went out of the Champions League in the group stage after winning just one of its three home matches. They have the opportunity to momentarily help us forget about their failed transfer dealings this summer.

Herrera says United simply came up short against the "best team in the world" - a philosophical stance that echoed his manager's post-match thoughts.

The Italian saw the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season at the helm, with his tactical prowess and man-management saluted throughout a productive campaign.

"But we are playing at Old Trafford in front of our fans and we want to win the first game". After making some impressive additions in the transfer market, with Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez, Slaven Bilic's team is now preparing a £25 million offer for Sporting Lisbon's 25-year-old central midfielder William Carvalho, according to the Daily Mail.
