Alan Shearer: Chelsea Must Do This To Hope To Defend Title

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte left forward Diego Costa out of the club's pre-season tour of Asia

"It's a great challenge for us to try and retain the title, but we are working hard".

'I was surprised because selling to a direct rival isn't the norm at the top end, ' Lampard told ESPN.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that Chelsea needs to bring in more players if they are to stand a chance of defending the Premier League title won in May.

20-year-old Palmer is set to start his second season on loan at Huddersfield Town.

"Him and [N'Golo] Kante were magnificent together and that allowed [Eden] Hazard and [Cesc] Fabregas that bit of freedom". Now when you're starting from scratch again, you need an even stronger mentality.

"I repeat: my only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players".

"Every game becomes tough".

Since arriving at the Emirates stadium from Southampton in 2011, Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to establish himself as a first team regular under Arsene Wenger, despite his potential.

Frank Lampard spoke exclusively to ESPN FC.

Appeased by Chelsea's decision to allow him to hire two new Italian assistants, Conte finally signed an improved deal, which at around £9.6 million a year makes him the best-paid manager in the club's history.

Leicester reportedly value the midfielder at £30m and do not want to sell.

"The other stuff outside of that is none of our business".

The same newspaper says Liverpool is preparing itself to receive a fourth bid from Barcelona for star playmaker Philippe Coutinho, as the Spanish club looks to replace Neymar. I think Everton will be sixth or seventh, and the rest we know.

"It won't be easy".

The gunners have also splashed some big money over the international French striker Alexander Lacazette coming for Lyon. "He is very young".

Arsenal and Manchester City love to hold possession, allow the fullbacks to attack more than defend. I'm sure they'll be challenging. I visited them a couple of times last year, to check how they are doing.

Friday night football was introduced last season with the experience beginning with Manchester United's home win against Southampton on 19 August.
