Chelsea manager Antonio Conte discusses Nemanja Matic sale, hints at board decision

At the other end, Peter Crouch has six Premier League goals against the Toffees including one last season.

"He didn't say anything - Jose just gave him a nod and Adedeji said thank you". "I like to work, I like to work very hard and my owner appreciates a lot this characteristic".

Cancelo made his first senior appearance for the Portuguese national team last summer when he played the full 90 minutes of a 5-0 friendly win over Gibraltar in Porto.

John Pentin from bettingtips4You.com said: 'Despite what happened two years ago, I would rather stick my money on the aliens coming to earth that backing Huddersfield Town to be crowned Premier League 2017/18 champions!' "I went for Chelsea because they had such a good set-up past year".

"This doesn't seem quite the same, but at the same time we don't know whether Matic wanted to leave".

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.

Guardiola will hope goalkeeper Ederson, acquired from Benfica for £34.9 million, is less error prone than Claudio Bravo, whose dismal season was a major factor in City's failed title challenge. And for us it's important because it can be very offensive this formation.

2 trains collide in Egypt, killing at least 25
In Egypt's deadliest train accident, in 2002, 373 people died when a fire ripped through a crowded train south of the capital. The collision involved one train that had been traveling from Cairo and another from Port Said, according to Al-Ahram.

" I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".

AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli admits that Chelsea striker Diego Costa is still on their shortlist of forward targets.

'I don't think Morata will do it that way but he has to come in and be confident, believe in himself and show the quality he has possesses. All 20 teams are in action, with seven games Saturday, and two more Sunday. "I think we just have to accept it and move on".

Last season saw United win the Europa League and the League Cup but this campaign Mourinho's side will be aiming to take matters a step further by challenging for the Premier League title, while they will also be aiming to make a significant impact in the Premier League. "I'm not saying they're completely conflicting".

Although Wenger understands the former Juventus chief's frustrations, the Frenchman insists that the problem could have been avoided had Chelsea not loaned out so many players during the summer months.

"He seemed like he wanted to leave past year at times, although he was very influential and played very well", he said of Costa.

Mourinho's starting line up could read: the ever reliable David De Gea in goal; Antonio Valencia offering strength and pace down the right -who Mourinho has recently rated claiming "there is no better right-back in football", - Eric Bailly and Lindelof playing as a solid pair in the centre and the technical Daley Blind at left-back.
