Champions Chelsea stunned by Burnley on Premier League opening day

Share

Sam Vokes was Burnley's match-winner with a brace and Alvaro Morata's lively Chelsea debut - a goal and an assist for David Luiz - came in vain.

Burnley picked up just one away win in the Premier League last season and the visitors had to endure a nervy finish when David Luiz fired home after latching on to Morata's flick, but the Clarets held on to record a famous victory.

"Also I have to study a new formation with 10 men, because when it happens with this regularity I must be anxious".

Asked what he thought of referee Craig Pawson's performance that incensed much of Stamford Bridge, Conte took a long pause and then replied: "I prefer not to comment on the referee's decisions".

"I am not anxious, I am ready to fight with these players".

Four minutes of added time was not enough for an undeserved comeback and the Blues lost their opening Day defeat for the first time since Coventry City in 1998.

"We must pay attention and try to keep our heads the rest of the game".

"So that result is huge, a massive win for us at the start of the season".

A number of other hedge funds and other institutional investors have also recently made changes to their positions in the stock. The financial services provider reported $0.22 EPS for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of $0.19 by $0.03.

"I like to tell always the truth and in the second half we changed totally the situation".

Conte's matchday squad selection exposed the worrying lack of depth in Chelsea's squad.

The 27-year-old is interested in leaving Leicester for the Premier League champions, which Conte hopes will convince the Foxes to part with the midfielder when the Blues return with their improved offer. You are not satisfied with my starting XI?

Antonio Conte did not see his side go down to 10 men once during his debut campaign in the English top flight. I wanted to win, not to send a message to my club.

The Burnley end rejoiced, Dyche punched the air, and Chelsea continued to play like a team worrying away at the edge of this game, astonishingly short on passing rhythm, or anything approaching a way to play going forward without Eden Hazard on the pitch.

Conte made a tactical reshuffle after Cahill's exit, Andreas Christensen coming on for Jeremie Boga, who had been named a surprise debutant due to Pedro's injury.

"But for sure we'll have two players out for bans, Cahill and Fabregas".
