Antonio Conte preparing for frustration ahead of transfer deadline

"Particularly at home and Chelsea come into that but it is the beauty of football and we love it when you can go away to these places with a bit of freedom, take on the game and see what comes your way".

Chelsea will look to extend their 100% record when the west Londoners take on Burnley at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

"I believe we can do it, but with this market it is very hard".

"I hope to improve the squad with some new players in this transfer market because when you start a very tough league like England it is important to have many players to face this situation".

Antonio Conte has hinted that Chelsea new-boy Michy Batshuayi could start up front against Burnley on Saturday.

The Italian also called for focus from his players ahead of the game, noting Burnley's fantastic win over Liverpool last weekend.

"Chelsea have got high quality players on the pitch, and they've got high quality players who are not even getting stripped and coming off the bench, such as Cesc Fabregas last week, so it gives you an idea of the depth that these clubs have".

"I repeat: this transfer market is very insane, very hard to reach the targets for us".

"If we had some advantage [I am not sure], but I can say that it's always important, always a pleasure to play in the Champions League".

"We've played three games, we won them all, but I know and I spoke to my players about it, we can improve a lot", the former Italy coach added.

Vokes and Gray, who scored the goals against Liverpool last weekend, will start in the final third, while Scott Arfield and George Boyd are expected to feature in the wide midfield positions.

On the other hand, Burnley were, by some distance, the best team in the Championship last season, only losing five of their 46 matches to finish top of the division and earn the right to compete in the Premier League once again.

"I watched the performance against Liverpool, it was fantastic, their physical aspect put a great pressure on Liverpool for 90 minutes", Conte said. It's incredible because only one year ago many people paid attention to ball possession. There lies the truth, or the gap, in the Premier League. Tonight I knew the English cup, I knew the atmosphere, and I can tell these games are very tough for all. Every team must fight until the end for the title.
