Burnley stun champions as nine-man Chelsea suffer meltdown

Chelsea Injury news Pedro Antonio Conte Burnley Premier League Dyche Eden Hazard Moses

In a very revealing interview with MARCA, Alvaro Morata admits the amount of money that Chelsea paid for him is very high, and that with that money comes heavy criticism.

And Conte believes Ronald Koeman's men are well-placed to compete for honours in the coming campaign, despite losing former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75million.

"After the red card we lost our composure and we conceded three goals". I want to win. Sam Vokes is tasked with leading the line, with the likes of Robbie Brady, Jack Cork (on his second debut) and Jeff Hendrick hoping to get forward in support.

After spending heavily on players including Wayne Rooney, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane, Everton have been tipped to break into the top six this season. Blues boss Antonio Conte was not too happy about starting out the new season being plagued by injuries but the Italian manager still expects his squad to put up a strong fight.

Chelsea kick off their Premier League title defence at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, as they play host to Sean Dyche's Burnley.

That wouldn't be the end of the harsh vibes at the Bridge, and Stephen Ward scored a goal Burnley fans will never forget when he laced a gorgeous shot from an unlikely and tight angle to make it 2-0.

Disappointing US inflation and jobs data have not helped the dollar. "Risk aversion is still very much a concern for markets". The remarks, following North Korea's earlier revelation of a plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S.

Conte then joked: "I think I will have to adapt a new system to play with nine men or 10 men for the next game, to anticipate this situation!"

"I am not worried because we have to trust in our work".

Here's how Twitter reacted to the game.

The fiery 28-year-old striker has remained in his birthplace Brazil for much of the summer holidays, where he's been seen partying and playing beach soccer. I thought the referee was very good - he had a tough game to handle.

Conte, in an interview with the BBC after their 3-2 loss to Burnley on Saturday, stated that he was focused on working with the players at his disposal.

"I don't know if this season could be more difficult than last season", Conte told reporters on Friday. "This win won't do us any harm at all but it won't make our season".
