"Arsene Wenger has picked him because he needed him but he will be left out along the way".
Chelsea face Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday, with Conte wary of the threat posed by Claude Puel's side.
"People don't know Alexis well", Wenger continued.
"When we were playing, you didn't read about players doing that". The German's performances since joining Chelsea haven't been as noticeable compared to the likes of Azpilicueta. He can make a difference between what's going on outside and what's going on on the football pitch. A roller coaster, doesn't even begin to describe this long and annoying transfer saga.
We start with Belgium, many people's dark horses for the tournament.
"So he had a big impact behind the scenes and also on the pitch".
The Blues pushed in bid to find victory at home but were denied by steady defensive structure by the Gunners.
Few believe that the two regulars Cech and Mertesacker no longer have the quality needed to be among the top teams.
"We knew we couldn't (afford to) lose". Quizzed on whether selecting Iwobi sent a mixed message on team discipline, Wenger said: "There's one thing to punish someone individually and a second thing to punish everybody". Join the The Pride of London team!
"It was frustrating but you (the media) have the best seats". Jan Vertonghen added his side's third. "It is impossible to go out 48 hours before a game".
"We shot 20 times". "Every game we create chances, this season we might be a bit unlucky, but haven't taken the chances".
Wenger can be assured that Ospina is a reliable replacement should Cech become unavailable further down the line.
"So what is the player's calculation?"
"There was only two opportunities for them to intervene".
Meanwhile, Wenger has revealed midfielder Francis Coquelin is set to join Valencia.
Rudiger followed that up with the opening goal of the 5-0 stroll against Stoke to prove that he is a genuine menace from set pieces with all three of his Chelsea goals coming via that route. But new additions are not racing through the door at the Emirates.
Jack Wilshere will be assessed ahead of Arsenal's weekend trip to Bournemouth after the midfielder sustained an ankle injury in the EFL Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge. Ramsey has been sidelined since mid-December with a hamstring problem. Although his first strike for the club came in the 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Everton, his winning goal against Swansea at the end of November will have carried much more weight.
Now, it seems like the situation has altered. Does he show loyalty to Cahill's old head, one that effectively led Chelsea to the Premier League title last season as John Terry became all too familiar with the substitutes' bench?
