N'Golo Kante Now A Complete Player, Says Antonio Conte

But we have to try and think only to play the game.

When asked if he believed £70 million man Alvar Morata was dominated by Arsenal's centre-backs including an impressive performance from Shkodran Mustafi, he responded by saying: "In my opinion Morata played a really good game". "Kolasinac was not completely on his feet". "I don't know how severe it is but it looks like a "good" groin problem, not an easy one".

'The answer of my players in the last game was positive.

Player ratingsChelsea: Thibaut Courtois 6, Cesar Azpilicueta 7, David Luiz 6, Gary Cahill 7, Victor Moses 6, N'Golo Kante 7, Cesc Fabregas 6, Marcos Alonso 7, Alvaro Morata 6, Willian 7, Pedro 6. "I think it's not an advantage".

Arsenal have not won at Chelsea since October 2011 and have won two of 21 games against the established top six since the start of the 2013-14 season. Coming on top of the FA Cup final win over Chelsea in May and Community Shield success, Arsenal has the upper-hand in this London rivalry at the moment.

Conte, who also suggested Luiz was tripped by Alexis Sanchez in the build-up to the foul, telling Sky Sports: "I don't talk about the referees, but the only thing I can say is we need to see what happened before the tackle". Wenger and his players will have to show they can bring this level of sharpness every single week in the Premier League if they want to return to that conversation, not simply against a team they clearly no longer fear.

Eden Hazard could start for Chelsea for the first time this season after two substitute appearances. "With a bit more freedom we would have won the game". The Belgium playmaker suffered a broken ankle in June. He is very close to being totally fit.

Conte is likely to make a number of changes after rotating his players for the Qarabag contest, with four games still to play in September.

On Sunday, Stamford Bridge will host a London derby that is almost 110 years old, but before the boss spoke about it at his press conference at Cobham, he had a message to deliver following an incident at Parsons Green earlier today. Conte opened his press conference by saying his thoughts are with those affected.
