Photos: Antonio Conte show skills in Chelsea training ahead of Burnley clash

Chelsea kick-off their title defense campaign on Saturday with a game against Burnley and the Blues have been put through paces ahead of their League opener.

Antonio Conte appears to participate in the training session as he looks to build a relationship with his squad that will help them master his tactics.

In his debut season, Antonio Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League conquest and that came on the back drop of a record 30 wins in the League. Conte is poised to achieve similar feat like he did last term.

The Blues are among the favourites to clinch this year’s Premier League title despite the failure to beat their capital rivals Arsenal in the Community Shield game.

Conte has already bolstered the squad of the Blues ahead of the currently campaign but the new signings will not change the outlook of Chelsea. Tiemoue Bakayoko is still out injured and he will not be back until next month.

Conte started a tactical formation in the Premier League after they were beaten by Arsenal in the first half of the League last term and that appeared to be the key to their success.

Chelsea new signing Alvaro Morata has struggled in the Blues pre-season games but the fans will be hoping that he shoves that aside and settle in the team quickly.
