Alvaro Morata impact not enough as Burnley stun Chelsea

Share

Chelsea substitute Alvaro Morata, a summer capture from Real Madrid, grabbed his first goal for the club with just over 20 minutes to play with a close-range header from a Willian cross as the Blues started to pile on the pressure.

Antonio Conte was facing a full-blown crisis on Saturday night after his Chelsea side were embarrassed by Burnley's shock 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge.

And memories of Mourinho's infamous title defence in 2015 came flooding back at Stamford Bridge today when Conte's men were reduced to 10-men and went 1-0 down to the Clarets.

Stephen Ward doubled the lead with a header after Defour made a brilliant cross while Vokes scored his second goal two minutes before the first half ended.

"I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate playing with nine or 10 men in the next game".

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

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

Chelsea begin the new season with a surprise defeat.

"We tried to keep the ball second half and contain them, but they're a fine side, they threw caution to the wind because they had nothing to lose".

Conte believes that he might need to train his players with one or two men fewer after the spate of red cards they have received in recent games but he didn't want to talk about the referee's performance. You are not satisfied with my starting XI?

"I don't this appetite for someone to send a message". In his re-debut for his boyhood club Everton, Rooney scored on the edge of halftime at Goodison Park to give the Toffees a 1-0 win over Stoke City.

Conte will have some thinking to do, along with the board, as both Cahill and Fabregas will be missing for next week's match with Tottenham Hotspur. I am not anxious, I am ready to fight with these players.

Antonio Conte might not be happy with the lack of discipline shown by his senior players, but the spirit and fight shown by his side should be a positive sign, although Chelsea must avoid these self-inflicted wounds in the future.

Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez, and Tiemoue Bakayoko are injured, striker Diego Costa is estranged, and Conte has a threadbare squad after selling midfield anchorman Nemanja Matic to rival Manchester United and loaning out numerous club's youngsters.
