The arrival of Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison who arrived from Everton this summer may cause Son Heung-min being left out of Conte’s starting team in partnership with Harry Kane.

While asked specifically about Son’s place in his team ahead of the game, Conte said,“I think when you try to build something important, when you try to build something with ambition and try to be competitive and fight to win, you have to change old habits.”

“For this reason, all the players have to accept the rotation especially up front, we have four players. For me especially it’s very difficult right now to drop one of these four players, but I have to make the best decision for the team, also for the players.”

“You try to make the players happy, but big clubs have a big squad, a deep squad. At this moment we don’t have a big squad, but we have just started to try to follow this path,” Conte said.
