Chelsea 2 Burnley 3

Costa filmed some of the action while a friend wore a Spain shirt with No 19 on the back

Chelsea broke their transfer record to sign Morata from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth a reported £70 million (Dh332.4m), with the Spain global recruited to replace Diego Costa, who is set to leave the club this summer.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte berated his players for losing their composure after new captain Gary Cahill saw red on Saturday, and said he would be working on new formations using only 10 men. Chelsea players are not in the best psychological state, the leader is injured in the team, Conte is dissatisfied with the work of management, but for the time being, 85 million euros spent on Morata cause dissatisfaction with the game of the newcomer. I think they will be beaten in this game.

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.

"If we are able to stay in the game, then anything can happen in the second half, but instead we conceded three goals".

Burnley manager Sean Dyche was delighted after his team ditched their label as poor travellers to pull off a shock 3-2 win at champions Chelsea, who finished with nine men, on Saturday.

If Cesar Azpilicueta moves out to the left flank to replace Moses, Antonio Rudiger, who also isn't match fit, could be forced into the starting XI. For example, when I was with Juventus I did not score more than 20 goals.

"I don't like this appetite for someone to send a message". Not one person believed Chelsea would win the title.

Next up for Chelsea is a tricky trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.

Asked if he was concerned by the situation, the Italian said: "No, I'm not anxious".

"In the next game I don't know if Pedro is able to recover from his injury, but for sure we'll have two players out for a ban, Cahill and Fabregas".

"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play with calmness and continue my path". We will find the right solution, we will find the right solution.
