All summer Antonio Conte attempted to sign a high profile full-back to add to his Premier League winning squad and all summer he failed. He'll be pretty glad now though.
Alex Sandro, Benjamin Mendy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were amongst the full-backs courted by Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
Sandro stayed at Juventus, Medny went to Manchester City and the Ox moved to Liverpool, to avoid being a full-back at all. Leaving Chelsea to sign Davide Zappacosta from Torino.

Tonight the Italian made his Champions League debut for the Blues and scored a ridiculous goal against Qarabag in the opening Group Stage game.
There's every possibility this was meant to be a cross but it's still a great goal!
It's a great run from the 25 year-old defender, taking on the Qarabag defence, before he gets himself in position to seemingly cross the ball.
However the cross goes a bit 'wrong' resulting in the ball flying in. It's unlikely the fans at Stamford Bridge are going to be too concerned whether or not it was supposed to be a shot.
Fans on social media were loving the goal, even if not all of them could admit it was a cross:
Not a bad way to make your Champions League debut!
