Chelsea manager Antonio Conte looked a frustrated figure on the bench for Chelsea as Chelsea lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The Chelsea manager has revealed that he needs more signings ahead of the new season and former Blue Frank Lampard also believes that it’s exactly what Conte needs.

Lampard said: “If you read between the lines, he wants more signings.

“I was looking at the programme earlier and if you look at the two squads, Chelsea have got half what the Arsenal squad is.

“If you’re talking about quality, Chelsea still have it. But you can see Conte wants people.

“When he was at Juventus, he did the same thing in the summer. He wants to push the club to buy more players to move forward.

“They’ve brought players in but he wants more, especially now they’re challenging on the Champions League front.”
