Antonio Conte 'the same' despite transfer frustrations - Gary Cahill

The last two Premier League champions achieved the feat without the distraction of European football, an indication of how tricky it is to manage this workload.

"He will need to get used to the Premier League but then he will perform".

"It was fantastic last season".

Matic is United's third summer signing, after Jose Mourinho splashed out a huge £75 million to capture striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton, and paid £31 million to Benfica for the services of Swedish defender Victor Lindelof.

Chelsea are not fancied to repeat their title win, but why exactly is that?

Costa has been told he is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge - a decision Chelsea insist was made in January - and Sky Sports News understands the Spain global is wanted by former club Atletico Madrid. Bench options Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also been loaned out.

Amit Shah , who has earned fame as BJP's master strategist, started working for the defeat of Ahmed Patel several months ago. Congress leader and Political Secretary Ahmed Patel emerged victorious in the crucial Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat .

Chelsea are going to sign a minimum of three more players by the end of the summer transfer window, according to a report.

The Chelsea boss has added centre-back Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero and Alavaro Morata to his ranks this summer, but Conte has made it clear he wants more depth to his team, who were beaten on penalties by Arsenal in the Community Shield.

The Italian must wait to find out if Aurier wins his appeal against a conviction for assaulting a police officer past year and is thus allowed entry to Britain after being forced to miss a Champions League game at Arsenal last October when border control authorities revoked his visa. Rest is going to be important because we're going to have a lot of games. Pedro Rodriguez and Willian Borges will take turns at the reins but doubts remain if they can have the same impact the Belgian had in the past season. One, however, could also say they have weakened their strikeforce with Alvaro Morata really a replacement for Diego Costa. Can Morata fill his shoes?

On Saturday, Conte was asked why the club would sell Matic to a direct title rival and his response suggested he is far from happy with the club's dealings this summer. He has been with us for only one week. "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".

"He needs a bit of time but it is normal".
