The Serb, a key component in the Blues' two Premier League title triumphs in the past three seasons, joined United in a surprise £40 million move last month.

"I do think he's got the natural talent to come in and score the 20-plus goals that Diego Costa scored previous year".

"They have signed Bakayoko from Monaco to replace Matic, but he has to come in and hit the ground running because Chelsea want to go far in the Champions League and defend the Premier League trophy", Wright told BBC Sport.

With Matic now in a United shirt, it is unlikely Fabinho would be used to screen the defence, but his knowledge at right-back would be welcomed by the self-proclaimed Special One.

Nemanja Matic is clearly an upgrade for Manchester United in an area that was a problem for them, especially with Michael Carrick getting older.

"We can but we can also play with four in the back", he said.

"I think he brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they have been lacking".

The 23-year-old is not the finished article, but his energy and physical presence make his flawless for the Premier League.

"You would applaud that but those players aren't even at the club now".

"It amazes me, why would you sell Matic to Manchester United?".

Asked if Chelsea need more signings in order to successfully defend their Premier League title, Conte replied: "Yes, for sure".

Prior to his first "official" goal for United, Lukaku had already scored three times for the club during pre-season with strikes against Real Salt Lake, Manchester City and Valerenga.

"It is hard job to play against a team that dominates the possession - and he tried", Mourinho said of his striker. I hope to be able to improve our squad. "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly a year ago but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".

"We just develop that and we played in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think the LA Galaxy, because it is something during the season we are maybe going to do".
