Antonio Conte: Must get a star defender

Chelsea fans believe now is the time to sign a new defender, while Liverpool fans look ahead to Klopp’s selection against Arsenal in their league opener.

If you have anything to add on these, or any subject, join the debate right here.


Liverpool face selection headache

It’s gonna be tough but I have a good feeling about this game. Furthermore the Gunners have lost their opening games in the past and this might be the best time to play them considering their injury situation. Players coming back late like Koscienly and the fact that they are known to be slow starters. Nevertheless it’s gonna be hard but probably very exciting and to end stuff.



It’s pretty hard to predict this Sunday’s team or formation with question marks over players fitness.
Matip has been in and out with injuries so that may suggest Lovren and Klavan.

Possibly Henderson and Can in a two as we are away from home and I just can’t guess what three/four attackers Klopp will use.

I suppose Wengers gonna be struggling to guess our plans too so no bad thing.



I think we it will be the same team as against Barcelona with either Wijnaldum or Henderson starting.

I really doubt Srsenal will have as weak a team as some predict. They are struggling at the back so it would be no surprise to see Kokscielny start or Ozil and Giroud playing some part.

Chelsea fans frustrated at transfer policy

So what now? If we want what we need which is a world class centre back, it’s time to just accept it and pay up for one.

The Matic-Bonucci thing will never happen. Our club isn’t known for smart decisions and will probably accept that useless Simone Zaza, who will just flop completely.

Bit of a mess at the minute all round with a lot of players leaving on loans and nothing coming in.

I see we continue to be linked with CB’s and yet I see other clubs making moves and getting deals done on players with EPL experience

I am always amazed that we seem to have to continually look abroad when there are decent players available in the EPL at possibly half the price

Just hope that the Club and Conte get this right.



Really struggling to understand the clubs transfer policy.

One example, why pay 30 odd mill for Michy Batshuayi, and let Traore go on loan, is this Michy actually any better? Well for £30mil+ anyway?

Definitely more players going out than coming in.




Did De Gea save United?

How far can this lad go? Can he become one of the greatest keepers the game has ever had? High praise, but I watch united week in week out. The kid has got everything! Obviously I hope we hold on to him for years to come now. How highly do you rate him guys?


Great keeper and still very young for a goalkeeper. Going to get better and better. God knows where Man Utd would have been without him over the past 3 season.


Best keeper in the Premier League, and in my opinion, he kept United away from the relegation zone almost single handedly under Louis van Gaal. If it hadn’t been for his performances, United would have been in real trouble…
