Premier League Ones to Watch

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has tipped new Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata to become the Premier League signing of the summer - the former Reds captain admitting his appreciation of the former Real Madrid forward.

This coupled with a host of injuries to the likes of Pedro, Eden Hazard and Tiemoue Bakayoko has left the Blues short of depth ahead of Burnley's visit for the first Premier League game of the season.

The bulk of the opening weekend's fixtures will be played on Saturday and Sunday, with Chelsea starting at home to Burnley.

"Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that".

Some pundits have suggested that Conte's side aren't favourites to retain their title, and as he pointed out the lack of depth in the Blues squad the Italian affirmed that he agrees with their assessment.

Costa's rollercoaster Chelsea career is ending in acrimonious fashion, but Lampard thinks now is the right time for player and club to part ways.

"If you have to give an evaluation only on paper".

"I think these are good signings for us", Conte told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

"Some players have different styles but that won't affect the way that we go about our business". Conte said: "It's simple. But we must be ready, we must be ready to try to do our best tomorrow".

"When you speak about pressure with me". "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much".

"I repeat: my only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players". "We solved a lot in this summer, and for this reason it's very important to try to improve our squad because we have one more competition". We are the most physical league.

Another player with a lot to prove, the Chelsea loanee needs to show he is Premier League class - something he has not had chance to do at Stamford Bridge.

"He seemed like he wanted to leave previous year at times, although he was very influential and played very well", he said of Costa. It is very important because every coach can have the best idea of football but then there's the quality of players.

Bosnia is just one of 105 nations outside the British Isles who have supplied players to the Premier League in its 25-year history.
