Alvaro Morata admits Chelsea transfer doubts before Antonio Conte phone call

"I want to score them, but a player can be remembered for other things in the game".

Antonio Conte did warn that Chelsea must bring more players to have a fighting chance in the forthcoming season and Roman Abramovich should be very much aware that he risks losing his manager if he fails to deliver.

"The situation is very clear". Alvaro Morata is good but not the same quality that Costa has.

And Lampard, speaking to The Sport Review, is not convinced that the Chelsea squad, at present, will be able to fight on four fronts domestically and in Europe.

"Actually, at first, I did not know that I was so interested in signing myself, but when I found out, I did not hesitate and it was my preference".

South Korea's military says prepared to act immediately against North Korean provocation
The United States and its allies have two primary missile defense options to intercept a missile between North Korea and Guam. Meanwhile, Russia, China and Germany voiced dismay at the escalating rhetoric from Pyongyang and Washington .

"If the club decide to send on loan players for their development it's because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea".

'I was looking at the programme here earlier and you look at the two teams there, the squads, Chelsea are nearly half of what the Arsenal squad is, ' he said on BT Sport.

Conte added: "We are facing different problems". And I think he's concerned - they're going to lose Costa, they've lost Matic. My aim is to try to improve my players, to try to improve my team.

Conte is highly unlikely to leave with less than a week before the new season starts and with Chelsea due to play Burnley on Saturday but Chelsea should be concerned over the overall negative atmosphere that is being created after Nemanja Matic's departure. They have a lot of matches now and that means there's not the time to work like Conte wants [on the training pitch].

The Blues brilliantly won the trophy last season, but have had an underwhelming pre-season campaign, while Antonio Conte has missed out on some signings. "I'm trying to do my best every day".

Rep. Engel Compares Trump To Kim Jong Un
Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, later retracted that but still said he thinks Trump is "irresponsible". Ellison's comment about Trump and Kim drew quick fire from the Republican National Committee.

"I have only played two preseason games, 15 official minutes and a failed penalty and they're already killing me, so I know what's ahead".

"Alvaro is working well but he needs time to understand and adapt to our style of football, above all because he's a striker".

"This role is more hard to adapt to than the other roles".

No wonder the Italian coach cuts a frustrated figure heading into the start of Chelsea's Premier League title defence.

Fellow summer signing Rudiger is available and could make his debut on the right of a back three, with Cesar Azpilicueta shifting to wing-back in order to fill in for the suspended Victor Moses.

Guam Governor Says Trump Called, Assured Island Is Safe
However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. The phone call took place amid escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea - with Guam in the crosshairs.

"Then you know very well that there are the surprises".
