Nemanja Matic Sale a Casualty of "Crazy Transfer Market", Says Antonio Conte

You've got to understand what the club is all about. All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League.

Neville believes what Conte said shows he was not the person at Chelsea who allowed Matic to join a fellow competitor for the Premier League title in Manchester United.

The Red Devils have spent big once again this summer bringing in Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

Ryan Giggs has backed Paul Pogba to significantly increase his goal tally this season and believes he could be the key to helping Manchester United regain the Premier League for the first time since 2013.

The longest run was a 13-yard end-around play by wide receiver Travis Rudolph, who is on the bubble to make the 53-man roster. It looks like it will be an interesting contest over the next few weeks between Aldrick Rosas and Mike Nugent .

"But he (Conte) spoke about him in such a way about his incredible importance to the job they did past year, Matic and N'Golo Kante in front of that back three".

And Lampard has expressed his surprise at seeing Chelsea such an important player to a rival.

This summer Chelsea have brought in £40m midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko from Monaco.

The Chelsea manager's sentiments have been echoed by club captain Gary Cahill, who has described to great detail how good Matic was at shielding the defense in Conte's attack-minded 3-4-3 formation. It is most likely that he will take Matic's place in the Chelsea midfield alongside Kante.

If it is designated as such, missile interception and protection of USA military vessels will be allowed. Russia, however, has said that the missiles were intermediate range.

Tottenham Hotspur, for instance, have been lambasted publicly by one of their own players for a lack of ambition; Liverpool's best player has handed in a transfer request; Pep Guardiola has made good signings but apparently still wants more; Arsenal are going through the same mental process they do every year, so no problem there. Will he gel alongside Kante?

"Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year".

Matic has intelligence and experience of the Premier League. He was good in some games, inexperienced in others.

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
