  • Phil Neville identifies two Chelsea stars who can’t play together

Speaking ahead of Sunday's clash with title rivals United at Stamford Bridge, Conte said: 'He (Kante) is progressing well and we still have tomorrow. and then I will take the best decision for him and the team.

Phil Neville believes whoever chose to sell midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United should be sacked after Chelsea crashed to a 3-0 defeat to Roma.

Manchester United's Nemanja Matic shoots at goal and hits the post, rebounding off Benfica's Mile Svilar (not pictured) for their first goal.

Chelsea players are under pressure - and their manager has been linked with the axe, but former Chelsea player Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has offered his support to the boss and claimed that he should be in the job for as long possible and anyone that says otherwise is wrong. "It's just because Chelsea are Champions and Manchester United are Manchester United".

"Honestly, if I wanted to risk him I could do this against Bournemouth or Roma, instead I waited, I found myself a lot of patience to find best way for N'Golo".

Paris Masters: Rafael Nadal moves into quarter-finals
While he was serving for the match, Nadal hardly had any spring as he double-faulted. "It's not the thing that I love to do". He has only reached the final once, on his debut in 2007, losing to David Nalbandian.

"We know we must respect them", Matic added.

Chelsea slaughtered United at the bridge last season, and it led to bad blood between the two managers, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

Conte has shuffled his pack since conquering the Premier League, with tweaks made to his senior squad. I think it's a big game because it's a big game not because I've been at Chelsea or Matic or Mata.

When asked whether Sunday is already a must-win game, Conte replied: 'I think now there is a big problem for all the teams that want to fight for the title and this problem is Man City.

Chelsea have lost twice in the six competitive matches he has missed - including a poor showing in a 3-0 Champions League loss at Roma in midweek.
