Antonio Conte suggests being long-term manager at Chelsea is impossible

"It's pretty much the form of his career, we've talked about all their big man transfer targets - he's certainly a step-up from Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch and Ashley Barnes".

After steering Chelsea to the Premier League title last season, Conte's side have struggled to last the pace with leaders Manchester City this time around, with 15 points separating them from Pep Guardiola's side.

I think he probably slots straight in, as you say, he's never relied on pace, so he's probably just more of a refined player now, and one in two is pretty impressive for a striker. "I'm sure about my work and am doing everything to improve this club". Who knows me very well, they know I'm not a diplomatic man.

Once the Edin Dzeko rumours got in full swing, Emerson was largely ignored and seen as something which was already sorted out, but when the two players got tangled up in a double deal there was some doubt attached.

"But this is something I don't want to discuss with you". I had this opportunity to have a chance in a fantastic country, in one of the best leagues, maybe the best league in the world and to face this type of situation.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is keeping his head down amid reports that there is a break in relations with Blues leadership. Conte says he predicted a hard campaign last summer, when he said Chelsea must avoid a "Mourinho season".

Showalter: Machado To Move From 3B To Shortstop
Hardy, Showalter believes the Orioles will be better defensively if the slick-fielding Machado plays in the middle of the infield. Manny Machado will get his wish in 2018 when the Baltimore Orioles move the three-time All-Star to shortstop.

"If I remember, at the start of the season, I said maybe this will be the most hard season for me".

"I'm happy. I'm happy to work with my players. A goal every other game, in real life, is a very, very good scoring ratio". "But I think that sometimes you think that you are cutting a lot of time with your family".

Reports have emerged from Chelsea that Conte is now a far cry from the happy coach of last season, and is constantly in a bad mood behind the scenes, even being grumpy with the Italian coaching contingent at the club.

"If we stay with the same players from the start of the season, it doesn't change".
