Today's clash with Leicester is quickly followed by Wednesday's (Singapore time) Champions League group game at home to Qarabag, with Chelsea needing to play seven fixtures in just 21 days.

Back in 2013 Jamie strongly denied any romance after the pair were seen hitting the dance floor together at a Hamptons event. A source told US Weekly: "They're going to go out to dinner more often... they plan to start going public".

Conte told a news conference at Chelsea's training ground on Friday afternoon: "Now he is available, he is in the list for the squad". I'm very happy to work with the players we have.

Leicester were crowned shock champions in 2016, but they could only finish 12th in the standings last term, while they have lost two of their opening three league matches this season. "But about this issue (Barkley) I think it's ridiculous what I read, so I stop". "I think now I can count on him for sure". He is in the squad for tomorrow's game and he is improving a lot. But I hope, this season, to do our best. "He is an important player for us". It is normal when the transfer window, when you go into another team it's not simple.

The former Wigan forward managed to adapt his game to the wing-back role after Conte switched to a 3-5-2 formation earlier in the season - following humiliating consecutive defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal.
