Antonio Conte admitted the "two faces" of Chelsea were evident after the Premier League champions were humbled 3-2 by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

"We have to pay attention because you can see that in the last three official games, we finished twice with 10 men against Arsenal and today with nine men", he said.

Even though Chelsea have won 15 of their last 16 home games and scored at least three goals in the most recent four of those, finding the net could be more of a struggle on Saturday.

There was no such nonsense from Antonio Conte, but he must be regretting his comment last month when he said "wants to avoid a Mourinho season", referring to the 2015 meltdown.

"Instead we conceded three goals and the second half was very hard to change the result, despite the great commitment, the great desire, the great will of my players". "Our fight in the second half was very good".

"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play calmly and to stay on my path", Morata told Marca.

Trump Warns North Korea Of "Things They Never Thought Possible"
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Friday his government would back the USA if North Korea attacked. On Tuesday , Trump warned that he would unleash " fire and fury " on the North if it continued to threaten the U.S.

The Terriers, playing in the English top flight for the first time since 1972, led when Mathias Jorgensen's header flew in off Palace's Joel Ward.

Surprisingly, new signing and potential star striker Alvaro Morata has been sidelined, after the forward provided a less than impressive performance after the 24-year-old missed a penalty against Arsenal during their Community Shield defeat last weekend.

Chelsea's pre-season has had echoes of Mourinho's final summer at the club with Conte criticisng the board for their lack of success in the transfer market. At the moment I signed a new contract, and then I made a decision to stay, I chose to work for this club, and then to try to give every day 120 per cent. I wanted to win, not to send a message to my club.

Chelsea will also now be without both Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas for their trip to Tottenham next week after they were dismissed against Burnley.

"For a defender especially it's worth watching strikers movements, not too much, not overkill but I think you can get an idea of what type of player they are like".
