Antonio Conte: Retaining PL title harder than retaining Serie A

"Of course this season they have a little more problems because they play every three days".

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he has no regrets over leaving Premier League champions Chelsea, report ESPN.

"What happened, happened", De Bruyne said.

"The only thing that came of it is that I had to leave".

The result leaves Chelsea six points adrift of both City and Manchester United after seven Premier League matches, having already lost as many times at home (twice) as they did in the whole of last season.

The Argentine striker was in the back of a cap in Amsterdam on Thursday night when it crashed, causing Aguero to suffer a broken rib.

De Bruyne - described as a "complete player" by Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte - left Stamford Bridge for Wolfsburg in January 2014 after making only a handful of appearances for the Blues under Jose Mourinho.

It took a brilliant De Bruyne effort to break the deadlock in the 67th minute as he fired the ball in from the edge of the box.

Well if there is some sort of lingering issue between the Spaniards, you'd never know it judging by Guardiola's comments on the 30-year-old in his post-match press conference. "With the ball he is excellent and without the ball he is the most humble guy".

Roy Hodgson's men are now the first English team in the top six flights to not score a goal and lose all seven of their opening league fixtures.

"We knew coming in it would be our toughest game yet this season". They were unbeatable, they won the league.

Juan Mata opened the scoring inside three minutes and Marouane Fellaini netted either side of halftime.

Just one win in their last seven games has got to be a huge concern for Jurgen Klopp going into the worldwide break, especially as they welcome Manchester United to Anfield on the first top flight game after the interlude.

Ultimately, it's safe to expect Chelsea to go on a hot run of form as their Premier League schedule starts to soften.

"We still have United and the Harry Kane team (Spurs)".

In his last season in charge of Juventus, Conte led the team to an emphatic title win with the team finishing 17 points clear at the top of the table.
