Conte: 'Rarely get players I want'

"If the club decide to ask me something about my team, I try to give my opinion".

Antonio Conte was a part of Italian national team in 1994 World Cup which lost to Brazil in the final, only on penalties. However, the defending Italian champions are also interested in Luiz and selling to a foreign club holds more appeal to Chelsea than strengthening a rival for the English Champions League spots. If they don't, then that's fine too.

Attack: The slight change in formation means Conte needs to lose one of his attackers but I think we'll see Pedro and Willian make way despite both impressing at the weekend.

Conte would prefer to keep his squad together this month and also hopes to sign a left back and a striker, but does not want unhappy players being a disruptive influence.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte continues to be without the injured David Luiz, but the Brazilian is close to shrugging off knee inflamation. "It is very important in my plan to involve all my players. At the same time I understand if some players are not playing with regularity and want to play with regularity".

Following his £35 million deadline day transfer to Stamford Bridge at the outset of the campaign, injury curbed Drinkwater's chances of making an impression on Chelsea supporters.

Conte would not be drawn on whether Luiz would stay at Chelsea by the closure of the transfer window, speaking generally, rather than specifically. "I'm enjoying a lot staying with my players during training and in games".

Juve are currently sat second in the Serie A standings, one point behind leaders Napoli.

"Juventus feels like family to me and I couldn't be better".

"It was an exciting game for the people who watch, less so for us [Chelsea] because when you are winning 2-1 and there are two minutes to go, we have to win the game, especially against a great team like Arsenal", Conte told his club's official website.
