The 24-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016 from Marseille for a fee of £33 million, yet he had a quiet first season in England, despite netting the goal that won the Blues the title against West Brom.

Antonio Conte has rubbished newspaper reports claiming a number of Chelsea players had made contact with former assistant manager Steve Holland telling him they miss him and were unhappy with the club's current training methods.

Reports this week claimed former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti had been earmarked as the club's number once choice to replace Conte after being sacked by Bayern Munich.

"In this moment we have to try to overcome this spirit because don't forget from the start of the season we had lot of problems", he told reporters. "If I decide to play with three midfielders, it's very important".

"I had a really tough period last season, tougher than now", he said.

Howe has spoken highly of counterpart Antonio Conte, who he pits his wits against when the two sides meet in the Premier League on Saturday evening. "If you want me to do an interview I am ready". "If I see the past, it happened the same with a lot of managers".

Conte also opened up on regularly talking with Ancelotti.

"Why put another person in this b******t? Why?" If you want to hit me, hit me.

"I can accept that they write the club is ready to sack me, and accept stories with the players, but to use another person in this way is not correct". But don't put it on other people, it is incorrect and I hate this situation'.

'Yes, Im in touch with Carlo, he's my friend, but it doesn't mean nothing, ' said Conte.

The Blues now trail leaders Manchester City by nine points.

He also confirmed that N'Golo Kante and Victor Moses will not be available today.

'Carlo is my friend i have great respect for him, he was my coach at Juventus'.
