Burnley Shock Chelsea, Watford Hold Liverpool, Huddersfield Win — EPL

Antonio Conte speaks at Chelsea press conference

"We lost our composure after this red card (to Gary Cahill) and we have to improve a lot in this aspect". Cahill was sent off for a clumsy challenge on Steven Defour fifteen minutes into the match, and Fabregas was given his second yellow nine minutes before time.

However, it was Burnley that came closest to scoring again with Robert Brady's free-kick coming off the post. Me, I have to start to study a new formation with ten or nine players.

"If we are able to stay in the game, then anything can happen in the second half, but instead we conceded three goals". "We didn't lose our balance and I have to be proud about the great commitment, the great desire, the great will of my players even though it was very difficult to change the result in the second half". I want to win today and I wanted to win, I wanted to win not send a message. Why?

Chelsea are unbeaten in the past six meetings with Burnley while the visitors have gone eight league matches without an away win in this fixture.

"We must focus on working very hard with these players", Conte told BBC Sport after today's game.

Joe Hart: 'Not many options for permanent move'
I'd like to think it's helped me. "I can adapt to whatever my manager wants". 'I kept him updated with my situation, ' Hart said. Sometimes take a few things on the chin and dig in and work. "I'd love it to be a little bit smoother, obviously".

Chelsea start their title defence against one of the few teams to nick a few points from them in the middle of last season.

They're desperate to find a buyer for him but Chelsea chiefs are becoming concerned that Spanish striker Diego Costa has put on too much weight over the summer and now they run the risk of not being able to offload him.

"On taking off youngster Jeremie Boga early in the game as a result of Cahill's red card, the Italian said: "For sure in the future he could have another chance". "This win won't do us any harm at all but it won't make our season".

"It allows our players just that little edge of growth".

You would have to go back 19 years for the last time the Blues lost an opening game.
