August 12, 2017 at 17:00, in one of the matches that will open the first round of the English Premier League will be a duel at the stadium "Stamford Bridge", in which Chelsea will confront Burnley. Here's some of what the Italian had to say.
The Spanish worldwide was sent off during the game at Wembley but Conte has confirmed the attacker picked up a knock to his ankle before the incident and won't be involved tomorrow afternoon. Whether it's a home game, you could take a chance and start with zero, and so ... Anyone's debut always attracts the spotlight as they are keen to impress their new spectators, Morata is a hard-working player who plays with his heart on his sleeve, he is tall and strong so will not struggle with that aspect of the Premier League.
"I think the most important thing for us it to try and do out best and to put 120% in our work every day".
"Honestly, I am pleased with the squad because we are working very well with the players, the commitment is incredible, better than last season", he said.
'If the club decides to loan out players for their development it is because they're not ready to play for Chelsea'.
"I repeat: it is important for us to concentrate on our work, to be focused every day in training and to try to work in our best way".
He did insist, though, that he was still fully focused on defending the club's Premier League title this season irrespective of any other concerns.
"It's not easy when you speak about pressure", he said. Conte would not talk about individuals - "the club knows very well my opinion" - but he was happy to make a broader point.
The Blues have brought in Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, but they have lost Matic and deemed last season's 20-goal top scorer, Diego Costa, to be surplus to requirements.
"In the last three official games we have finished with nine or 10 men. We'll have a game-plan and I'm sure we'll have the same game-plan regardless of whoever plays up front".
'Antonio Conte wants more players in and I think he will get them because the board has backed the manager over the years, ' added the former midfielder. "This role is the most hard to adapt to then the other roles".
"This choice was a natural choice because Gary has played for the club for many years and has won a lot. I haven't seen it but my staff tell me it's the correct decision", Dyche said.
"The situation is very clear".
