FT Thoughts

This is a tough call as nobody quite knows what Conte is thinking. Does he stick or twist? His Chelsea team were comfortably the best in the Premier League last season, but with others spending big this summer, he surely must add to what he's got.

We aren't expecting a big overhaul though, just a few tweaks and adjustments to ensure the title defence goes a lot better than last time. This includes the excellent young defender Antonio Rudiger, as well as one of the most solid midfielders in Europe - Tiemoue Bakayoko

Up front, if Diego Costa leaves for Atletico Madrid - Alvaro Morata is the man to replace him as their big-money signing this summer.
