It's part of a busy run of fixtures that sees Chelsea play seven games in September and Conte admits rotation will be required to keep his team fresh. Many expected Batshuayi to get more minutes this year since he was no longer contending with Diego Costa.

However, David Luiz has every faith in Bakayoko and has claimed he will make the Chelsea fans very happy.

With an expected lineup consisting of players who have not played with each other before, how quickly will Chelsea be able to adjust?

Antonie Griezmann was to join Manchester United and Alexandre Lacazette replacing him but the former Real Sociedad man decided not to leave when the transfer ban was not lifted. The more players we have the better it is for us. Apart from him, Koke and Saul Niguez can be the ones to cause trouble.

Eden Hazard should be back to compete in Europe following his recovery from a fractured ankle.

With two days less to prepare, Arsene Wenger is likely to rotate his side heavily.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte What time is it on at?

Chelsea weren't in the Champions League last season, but are the last English side to have won the trophy, having beaten Bayern Munich in the 2012 final. Since I was young, I have had a good career and I gained a lot of experience last season. Future games will be hard, but the Blues have a strong team, and as such, they should pull through. You know very well in this league there are six or seven teams ready to fight not only for the title, but also for a place in the Champions League and the Europa League. The Belgian is Roma's best player and it is no surprise that Conte wanted him.

"Before, a lot of people told me, "Yes, without the ball, he has good stamina and is a good worker", but now with the ball he has improved a lot".

Weakness: Defense - They might be very good in attack but their defense is shaky.

"It is easier now for me and my job at this point of the season". It's always been my dream to play in the Champions League and win it.
