Conte growing a beard, hoping to grow Chelsea's winning streak as well

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insists that his side must "win every game" if they are to catch Manchester City at the top of the table.

Conte and Luiz had a high-profile bust up before the worldwide break that saw the Brazilian axed from the matchday squad entirely for their Premier League clash with Manchester United.

"David Luiz is in the squad", Conte said. "When it's a technical decision, every single player has to react well and accept my decision. It's normal", Conte said at his pre-match press conference.

I repeat: I don't like to speak about a single player.

"I must be honest, now Manchester City are playing very well and it's very hard to think that you can catch them because, if they continue in this way, it will be very hard for any team to try and fight for the title".

Chelsea have been criticised for not giving youth a chance, and in Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham have two players who have impressed so much on loan at Crystal Palace and Swansea City respectively that last week they made their England debuts.

After the West Bromwich game, we have to play to go through in the Champions League in Azerbaijan, and then after two days we play Liverpool away. The defender responded by labelling the 54-year-old as "not special". Ruben, I read his interview. For sure, it won't be easy because I think Manchester City are very strong.

Amidst all the burning Chelsea problems, the Italian might point his finger at anyone other than himself but should come to terms that he carries great blame for the current situation. It's the same path as Christensen, who played for two years on loan and now he's playing regularly for Chelsea.

Charly Musonda (knee) is also absent, while Victor Moses is nearing a return to training following his hamstring problem.

Asked about City's summer recruitment, the Italian said: "I was anxious because they were working very well in all aspects".

He added: "We have to try to fight until the end. It's very hard to predict who will win the title".
