Antonio Conte admits that he regrets Chelsea selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Matic was at the heart of Chelsea’s side which stormed to the Premier League title last season but the 29-year-old was allowed to join United in a £40million deal ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

The Serbian midfielder is expected to start against his former club at Old Trafford on Sunday and Conte has claimed the move was ‘unfortunate’.
