Antonio Conte on Premier League title race

Sergi Roberto

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has pointed a finger at the club's late night/early morning arrival back from their Champions League win over Atletico Madrid as a factor in their disappointing defeat to Manchester City at the weekend.

Chelsea have stuttered somewhat this term, however, dropping points in three of their seven outings so far to find themselves down in fourth place.

Conte's Chelsea team were shown how tough it would be to retain their Premier League title in Saturday's loss to Pep Guardiola's side. For sure, to defend the title is very hard because the past has shown it is very hard to win two titles in a row. It wasn't simple second time, but it was easier.

That's because the forward is the only world class striker Chelsea have, and it was clear to see that the Blues were struggling for an outlet against Manchester City once Morata went off with an injured hamstring - in a game they went on to lose.

Aduriz last featured for Spain in a 2-2 friendly draw with England in 2016 and has scored four goals in seven league appearances for Athletic this season.

"I think last season we did a really great job, because we won the League against a really strong team, because Man City last season also was a fantastic team".

"And now after I think a great transfer market, they have improved a lot". It's not simple to play this league'. "We must put all of ourselves into trying to do the best in every game". "You must be honest and accept the result".

Spain host Albania in Alicante on 6 October before travelling to Israel three days later - with Julen Lopetegui's side needing four points from their final two games to confirm qualification for Russian Federation 2018.
