The Premier League is off and running but Chelsea fans have had to wait for their first glimpse of their new-look team in action.
Antonio Conte will take charge of his first competitive Blues game this evening at Stamford Bridge when West Ham United come to town.

What the managers say
Conte: “I am not very relaxed. When you start a new season, it is a fantastic experience because for me this is the first time I have managed a new team in a new league in a new country.
“It is a fantastic challenge for me. For this reason I am not that relaxed. I know we have to do a lot of work to improve but we have started and I am very happy to start.”
Bilic: “I will look forward to meeting Chelsea and Antonio Conte on Monday. Antonio comes from a different football culture, a different mentality and, from my experience last season, it is not easy when you move to a new country.”
