All I care about is if he's fit enough to play at Wembley against Spurs, but preferably before the community shield. We're gonna heavily rely on him as a major outlet against pressing teams. His ability to retain the ball under pressure through a smart turn or one or two dribbles is invaluable in these type of matches. He dominated the Spurs midfield last year in the CL.

So still no update on his situation? I see him in what I assume is the rehab center at Cobham with Hazard in those pics with Morata.

Low-key more excited for him than any of our other signings. He's going to be an absolute game changer in big games, I'm absolutely sure of that. Conte is also perfect for his development. I think the defensive aspect of his game and his technique are already very good (though he can improve on receiving the ball in deep areas of the pitch), and his passing game has got real potential to easily be above average.

I`m glad we signed him but I don`t like the fact we are relying so heavily on him getting then staying healthy/uninjured and adjusting to the new to him league and performing at a high level week in week out.

is like we playing less games this season not much more.

Indeed why did board sell Matic if we dont have replacement already lined up.

I know Baka is Matic replacement, but he is not fully fit and that should be enough to keep Matic until then. Now we only have Kante and Cesc for midfield, one not being good enough.

Which further reinforces my opinion that there's no way Conte wanted Matic to go. It was 100% a board decision. He could've stayed and been a vital member of our squad. Now he's a vital member of a direct rivals squad while we are dangerously short in midfield.

I can't believe chelsea sold matic without contes permission.

this could lead to his departure.
