But Conte will be quite pleased if he doesn’t play against Chelsea on Sunday.

And when asked about the Frenchman potentially being on the bench again this weekend, the Blues boss said: “We are talking about a top player, about a fantastic player.

“My expectation is to see him on the pitch, if he stays out [of the XI] it will be better.

“As I said before, we are talking about a top player. Every coach has to find the right way to manage him. But I think that Pogba is showing at United that he is a top player.”

When asked if he was surprised Pogba had been left out recently, Conte added: “I must be honest: my focus is only on Chelsea. I’m not interested on what happens with the other teams.”
