"I want to play and I want to score and I want to give everything on the pitch".
"I think Chelsea are weaker squad-wise".
Faced with steering Chelsea through such choppy waters, perhaps it is not surprising Conte has cut a restless figure since returning from his Mediterranean cruise. Currently Chelsea have a total of three first team players who are considered homegrown, Cesc Fàbregas, Victor Moses, and Gary Cahill.
"It's the start of the Premier League and it's very important for us".
"Right now Chelsea are in a worse position than last year", added Wright. That way, Los Rojiblancos get to keep him sharp and fit, as well as ready to go when he joins in January.
The Italian boss was appointed as Chelsea boss last summer and drove the squad to success when they won the Premier League title.
"If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid".
"We have shown progress in that area, which shows the kids have ability".
The defensive midfielder played a key role in United's goal and was impressive with his all round display but couldn't prevent the Red Devils from suffering defeat. Will he gel alongside Kante? Bench options Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also been loaned out.
"I had the benefit of realising how good he is when he's playing just in front of you, on and off the ball".
"Chelsea have broken up that partnership and strengthened their rivals". We want to be competitive and we want to fight for the title again. At centre back, they have arguably improved, getting rid of club legend, but ageing John Terry, youngster Nathan Ake and Kurt Zouma on loan. That was the one that surprised me a little bit.
While the Blues ran out 3-0 winners against Burnley at Stamford Bridge last August, the campaign before saw the Clarets earn a 1-1 draw in west London. Conte likes to work the tactical and the physical part.
Glass half empty: The Sanchez and Ozil contract situations will overshadow the whole season and, while the club have strengthened in the transfer market, the likes of Manchester City, United and Chelsea have all spent more.
Antonio Conte lifted the Premier League title in May at the end of his first season as Chelsea manager, but the summer hasn't gone according to plan for the Italian.
