English Premier League: Chelsea Stunned by Burnley, Manchester City Ease Past Brighton

English Premier League: Chelsea Stunned by Burnley, Manchester City Ease Past Brighton

"For sure it was a key moment, because after this red card we lost our composure and we conceded three goals".

There was at least one positive aspect for Chelsea in the performance of Álvaro Morata, who scored his first club goal, although Conte also warned that his record signing still has much work to do on both his fitness and fitting into the system.

But Conte was tight-lipped, he said: "I prefer not to answer questions about Costa - for me it's in the past".

"In the second half we were in that awkward predicament - do you attack or hold on to it?"

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas reacts after getting a red card during their opening English Premier League match against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have been relatively active in the summer transfer window after having brought in four new players - Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.

Dyche saw Sam Vokes score twice and left-back Stephen Ward connect with a stunning volley as his side won away in the top flight at the first time of asking - last season their only away league win came at Crystal Palace in April. We tried until the end to reach a good result against Burnley - it was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good. "I have to start to study a new formation with 10 players because this irregularity is worrying".

But Conte has made no secret of his desire to recruit more players to strengthen his first team for a season that sees the addition of Champions League matches to their fixture list.

"We're written off at the start of every season".

Huddersfield Town marked their top flight return with a brilliant 3-0 win against Crystal Palace that sent them top of the table, while Wayne Rooney bagged the victor on his Everton comeback in a 1-0 win over Stoke City. We lost our heads too easily and we need to reflect on this situation. "After the red card we lost our heads, conceded two goals and then it's very hard to change the final result".
