Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn't want any sympathy

Other eye-catching newcomers include former Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina, who played in last season's Champions League final against Real Madrid, and Dutch defender Jairo Riedewald, who is reunited with his former manager Frank de Boer at Crystal Palace. Burnley won just one of their 19 away games and had a goal difference of -22; only relegated Hull had a worse record on their travels.

No new Chelsea signing is under more pressure than Alvaro Morata, brought in for a club-record initial fee of £58m from Real Madrid to replace the unsettled Diego Costa as the focal point of Conte's attack. He was one of the Premier League's best before accepting a number two role at Chelsea. "I think he'll make the spine of Manchester United seem very strong and I think Lukaku will be very good as well".

"He could - also because there is no Victor Moses (Moses is suspended)".

Another pointer towards a low-scoring affair perhaps is the absence of Eden Hazard who will miss the game with an ankle injury. It could be an opportunity to start the game for Rudiger.

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory. In the United States of America, our National team plays in the Gold Cup every two years and if they qualify, in the World Cup every four years.

The Italian led the Blues from 10th the previous campaign to the Premier League trophy last season. They then concluded their home campaign with a resounding 4-0 victory over Hull. In these 10 days he is improving his physical condition and is starting to understand what we want, but he needs time to understand to adapt to our style of football. Hopefully he'll get a chance and take it this season. The transfer market is not finished. These clubs have their regular season, but also different tournaments that they play in during the season.

"There are a lot of variables that aren't easy but from the outside, it does seem odd to let that player go to a direct rival - and he will improve them".

"It's simple. I think I'm the coach of this team".

That's not a cop out, it's just how I feel given "form" is the main thinking behind most of my bets.
