Conte desperate to improve Chelsea squad

Nemanja Matic Premier League Manchester United

Since the end of last season, transfer records have been shattered across the country as over one billion pounds has changed hands in a frenzy that could well set a new high for a single window. Lampard does not believe the situation will make the Frenchman's adaptation to the Premier League harder, but he conceded that the challenge facing the 22-year-old is a significant one. I am pumped for this to start though, I mean it seems early, but hey it is regular season.

"I think we'll have a few clips on him and they'll have done a little bit of research on him that will be fed back to us". But I do think there's a chance that we'll see a low-scoring game, and therefore backing Under 2.5 Goals at around the [2.4] mark is the recommendation. In the U.S., our National team plays in the Gold Cup every two years and if they qualify, in the World Cup every four years.

Fuelled by an historically lavish spending spree, the Premier League returns on Friday when Arsenal host Leicester in the opening game of the hotly-anticipated new season. "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".

Antonio Conte will walk away from Chelsea this season if his ambition is not matched, Chris Sutton has warned. What happens in the transfer market, the club is trying to do their best.

Those strong results were in large down to some excellent performances from Palace's star men - the likes of Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye, and the very underrated Jason Puncheon.

Full credit to Huddersfield and boss David Wagner who has spent close to £40m in strengthening his squad during the summer, though approximately a quarter of that was spent on turning the loan signings of Aaron Mooy and last season's leading goalscorer Elias Kachunga into permanent deals. Conte said: "It's simple". It was the same last season.

Fourteen of the league's managers are now foreign and the appointment of Portuguese-speaking coach Marco Silva at Watford was a major draw for Brazilian under 20 forward Richarlison, who has joined for 11.5 million pounds from Fluminense.

While some fear the spending is unsustainable and will put clubs' long-term stability at risk, the 25th year of the Premier League era should deliver a title race more fiercely contested than ever.
