Antonio Conte and Chelsea must be wary of bullish Burnley's threat

Antonio Conte says Diego Costa is an important part of his Chelsea side.

With two Premier League wins already in the bag, Chelsea might be forgiven for relishing the visit of Burnley this coming Saturday. Having already overcome two surprise packages from last season in West Ham and Watford, the newly promoted club from Lancashire should -- on paper, at least -- represent an even smoother path to victory.

The Blues would be well-advised, however, to treat Sean Dyche's well-drilled team with respect and any premature thoughts of an easy ride will surely have been eradicated...

AC Milan must keep Alessio Romagnoli at all costs amid Chelsea interest

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson address the day's rumour mill.

If speculation is to be believed, Chelsea's search for a new defender this summer has taken them from Naples to Turin, and now it appears as though Milan is the latest stop on Antonio Conte's recruitment tour.

The Premier League giants had a bid "in excess of €25 million" rejected by AC Milan for centre-back Alessio Romagnoli this week, although they could yet continue to test the resolve of the Rossoneri between now and transfer deadline day on Aug. 31. It's a concerning time for Milan...

Can Antonio Conte tame Diego Costa before the striker's luck runs out?

Antonio Conte stresses how important Diego Costa is to Chelsea's success this season.

When you are as street as I am, you tend to stay way ahead of the curve, which is why I was already aware of the new word that the Urban Dictionary recently introduced.

Wenger (noun) -- a person unwilling to spend money.

While "Wenger" has officially moved to cliché status, I remain cutting edge and propose a new evocative football expression for the UD to consider :

Diego (noun) -- a talented tool who you only like when he's on your team. (synonym -- see Bellamy, Craig)

I realize that there...

Victor Moses and Ruben Loftus-Cheek shine in EFL Cup, but questions remain

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson assess how Antonio Conte will utilize Chelsea's back line this season.
The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on Chelsea's formation and the coach or player they would have liked to play for or with.
Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack said Jurgen Klopp has the mental strength to lead Liverpool to the EPL title.

Chelsea laboured their way into the EFL Cup third round on Tuesday night, withstanding a spirited fightback from League One strugglers Bristol Rovers courtesy of goals from Michy Batshuayi and Victor Moses as the match ended 3-2.

Antonio Conte made six changes to the team that started in Saturday's 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road, and while some players strengthened their claims for a more regular place in the starting XI, others failed to impress.

Here, ESPN FC's Chelsea correspondent Liam...

Allowing two goals to League One outfit Bristol Rovers will give Antonio Conte more to ponder with the Chelsea defence.

Here are the latest stories for Wednesday.

CHELSEA: Michy Batshuayi looked like the real deal in his full debut for Chelsea. The Belgium international, who joined Antonio Conte's team this summer, scored twice in Chelsea's 3-2 EFL Cup win versus Bristol Rovers.

- However, Conte was not pleased with how close the final scoreline was, insisting his team need to be more ruthless in killing off matches.

- Meanwhile, Conte has said only John Terry and Sam Allardyce can decide whether the Chelsea captain...

Chelsea's good start continues in EFL Cup but improvement is needed

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson assess how Antonio Conte will utilize Chelsea's back line this season.
The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on Chelsea's formation and the coach or player they would have liked to play for or with.

Tuesday night's 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in the EFL Cup made it three wins out of three for Chelsea this season. In terms of pure results, not much more can be asked of a team that struggled to string two consecutive wins together last season let alone a third.

In the 2015-16 campaign it happened just once, in a 10-day period that straddled the end of February and the beginning of March that saw the Blues beat a second-string Manchester City 5-1 in the FA Cup before recording back-to-back away...
