Gary Neville: 'Chelsea boss Antonio Conte not happy with Nemanja Matic sale'

One thing that people have questioned is if the sale of Matic was against the wishes of manager Antonio Conte, who has spoken about his plans for the new season and made it clear he would have liked Matic to be a part of that.

"I can't think of a reason why Chelsea would sell him", Neville told Sky. If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Victor Lindelof is capable of playing in central midfield this season.

He said:"Chelsea have broken up that partnership and strengthened their rivals".

United did not finish lower than third in the Premier League era under Sir Alex Ferguson, but since his retirement have ended seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth.

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them".

Solar eclipse science: What you need to know for Aug. 21
So how can you watch the eclipse then? However, not all meet the required ISO 12312-2 global safety standards; make sure yours do. On Aug. 21 , the total eclipse path, called the path of totality , is only about 70 miles wide crossing the US from west to east.


Chelsea have brought in Tiemoue Bakayoko to replace Matic, while Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Willy Caballero have also been signed this summer. Will he gel alongside Kante?

Jose Mourinho's men could only muster a painful 1-1 draw in this fixture last season - a result reflective of their ongoing woes at home in the Premier League last season - and cannot afford to start off in the same way on Sunday. Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League a year ago.

The 23-year-old struggled in stages of United's pre-season but Mourinho insists the Sweden global will be given enough time to settle in at the club.

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

"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".
