The Blues manager failed to secure his top defensive targets in the summer, settling for £30million David Luiz on deadline day after failing to land Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Conte was visibly frustrated when asked about his defenders’ performance against Arsenal.
“Was I angry at half-time? Yes, but I prefer to keep my words, because it’s right when I talk with my players, to keep what I tell them,” he said.
“This is normal. Sure I was angry, but my players were also angry. Because we weren’t satisfied with our game, with our performance. I don’t sleep, sure. I don’t sleep. This is normal.
