Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has backed Michy Batshuayi to make an impression if he is given the opportunity to feature from the outset for the Premier League champions.

"I think he has a lot of room for improvement", Conte said.

"They are trying to create problems between me and the club and the players".

"Last season was very hard for him, but it was also hard for me". I don't like to see managers sacked. I don't care what the newspaper write about my future or the other person because this is our job and Carlo is my friend.

"If someone is happy writing this then I can't do anything".

The Italian led Chelsea to the Premier League title last season, but they have struggled to keep pace with Manchester City so far this term, Conte's intense work on the training field reportedly rubbing Blues players up the wrong way.

New details have emerged in the unsolved case of a California mother who was kidnapped for 22 harrowing days a year ago . The FBI is offering $10,000 for information that will help identify either of the two alleged abductors pictured above.

"It is not good that this person has to send me a message to tell me, "I am sorry but this is not true, I am sorry, if you want to do an interview, I am ready". Why put another person in this position.

"It is not correct and I hate this type of situation".

Howe has spoken highly of counterpart Antonio Conte, who he pits his wits against when the two sides meet in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

He spent the last few days in London catching up with friends and it is understood he is aware of the interest in reappointing him at Chelsea.

Conte said he often talks to Ancelotti, whom he played for at Juventus, but added that the pair have no need to talk about Chelsea's managerial situation.

That seemingly only worsened this year when his concerns about squad depth in light of a return to the Champions League were not allayed.
