Antonio Conte starts life Stamford Bridge tonight with a Premier League match against West Ham.
He is expected to field new signings Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante against London rivals. Defender, Kurt Zouma however remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury.
West ham star player, Dimitri Payet will not be fit to play the whole game after making a delayed start to pre-season due to his Euro 2016 commitments for France.
Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini are out with knee injuries but Andre Ayew and Sofiane Feghouli could be involved for West Ham.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants his players to channel the spirit of champions Leicester City: “When you watch Leicester’s games you understand this great feeling between the players.
“Every player is ready to help his team-mate because he knows in another situation his team-mate will help him.
“It’s important to have this if you want to win. It’s important to have talented, fantastic players, but it’s important as well to create the right spirit.”
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said: “We have a good squad – we’ve kept most of the players and we’ve added some players too.
“We are expecting them to improve us – we’d expect that even without them because we have been together for a year now and had a good last season.
The match will be played at 8:00pm Nigerian time.
