With the Blues set to visit Spurs' temporary home at Wembley on Sunday, before a home clash with Everton seven days later, Conte sees it as vitally important to pick up some points before the first worldwide break of the season.

"We've done well in the transfer window but we still have time to bring more players in".

"My opinion is we have to adapt to the situation, it doesn't matter what", Mourinho told his weekly press conference at United's Carrington training base on Friday.

The way the transfer system is set up is a far from ideal.
