Premier League champions Chelsea need to sign more players to improve squad depth for the new season, manager Antonio Conte said ahead of Sunday's Community Shield match against Arsenal at Wembley.

"For sure, I don't understand why lawyers are getting involved".

Conte will lead Chelsea as they try to win back-to-back league titles for the first time since 2006 and the Italian is wary of the competition from fellow title contenders Tottenhan Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup final denied Conte the Double in his first season at Chelsea, but after ending the season with defeat he wants to begin this one with a win. Chelsea have signed striker Alvaro Morata, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, defender Antonio Rudiger and goalkeeper Willy Caballero, but all are replacements rather than additions.

"I think it's right to revisit your season and review it and improve your team and the tactical aspect and the physical aspect ... and to change something".

Samsung officially introduces the SM-G9298 flip phone
There are many sensors on board, some of which include an acceleration sensor, a gyroscope, and a barometric pressure sensor. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the flip phone does not come with a dedicated button for Samsung's Bixby.

"For me, it will be the most hard season of my career", said Conte, ahead of tomorrow's Community Shield match against Arsenal at Wembley. As Antonio has said, I think this is worth repeating, that the decision on Diego was made back in January. "But, for sure, we hope, in the future, to improve this situation because you can see". We know very well Arsenal is a strong team.

"For the rest I can tell my opinion, but then there is the club to make the final decision".

Having just won the Premier League, the Pensioners can offer Hazard Champions League football, a good lifestyle in London and a very real chance of collecting two titles in two seasons.

Initially laughing off such speculation, getting down to business the Stamford Bridge boss explains that Hazard is "very happy to stay with us, to play with Chelsea" - and it's not hard to see why considering the strong position the Blues are in presently. "(But) we have to wait for the best moment, the best solution". They have improved because they have kept the same squad as last season.
