"But when you buy players like Ederson, a top goalkeeper, then [Kyle] Walker, then [Benjamin] Mendy, then Bernardo Silva, then Danilo. for sure you improve your squad, improve your quality in your squad".

And Pedro has spoken of his delight at linking up with the likes of Willian and Hazard in the Chelsea team this season.

Chelsea entertain Southampton on Saturday, looking to build on a stylish 3-1 midweek win at Huddersfield Town.

Pocking up points on their travels is becoming more of a problem, in fact, as they have taken just one from a possible 12 against Manchester United, Arsenal, Leicester City and Watford.

Third-placed Chelsea play host to a Southampton side sitting in 11th in the Premier League table this weekend, with Antonio Conte hoping his Blues team can revive the form that saw them capture the division title last campaign.

"When I speak, we must be realistic".

"Tomorrow will be very hard", Conte said.




No wonder, with the Citizens maintaining their impressive scoring rate that has seen them net at least twice in their last 10 matches and 52 in all - an average of more than three a game across their 17 fixtures.

He told the club's official website: "For sure tomorrow the game will be very hard for us because Southampton are a really good team, they have young players with a great future".

"Two different players, different characteristics", said Conte.

"I can tell you that, for sure, tomorrow the game will be very hard for us", he said.

"We must pay great attention, not only in England, because Man City is building a strong team to lead in Europe. He has this pain in his back, but he's in contention for tomorrow's game".

So, that's not so much a title concession from Conte but him pointing out that it will be very tough for his team to claw any points back on City.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have given Musonda the option to go out on loan this winter, with the youngster set to make a decision on his future, per Nizaar Kinsella at Goal. They can play very well on the counter-attack: Austin, Redmond.
