Conte favourite to become first Premier League manager to be sacked

Conte favourite to become first Premier League manager to be sacked

Conte has struggled to hide his frustrations over Chelsea's failure to strengthen their squad, with Morata, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero their only new signings. "But for sure he played very well in the last 30 minutes, which is good news for us". The Chelsea supporters vented their anger towards referee Pawson, while the delirious Burnley fans sang: "We are top of the league!"

After N'Golo Kante had seen a shot deflected onto the roof of the net in first-half stoppage time and Marcos Alonso had been denied by Tom Heaton, Willian began to haul Chelsea back into the contest.

"After the red card we lost our heads, conceded two goals and then it's very hard to change the final result".

The Blues never quite recovered from that incident in the second half.

Chelsea, despite their numerical advantage, anxious Burnley for the remainder of the game.

Breaking into the box from the left, Ward controls a lofted pass on his chest before smashing an effort beyond Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois.

The Blues came out with renewed vigor in the second half, pressing their opponents as they looked to reduce the three-goal deficit, but the champions were still lacking in the final third.

ANTONIO CONTE accused his Chelsea stars of losing the plot after an opening-day shocker.

"The sending-off made a difference and I thought we did really, really well to handle that and keep the ball and create chances", he said.

Morata did manage to give the majority of those in Stamford Bridge hope, however.

Two goals from Sam Vokes and a Stephen Ward effort put the Clarets 3-0 up. But the offside flag was raised.

Cesc Fabregas was then sent off for a late challenge on Jack Cork but David Luiz added 1 more goal for Chelsea.

Alvaro Morata nearly inspired a comeback as a second-half substitute, scoring before setting up a late strike for David Luiz, a goal that came after Cesc Fabregas' removal for a second yellow had seen Chelsea reduced to nine men.

Coming into the new season as champions, Chelsea's prospective attacking problems had one silver lining: their defense would be undoubtedly solid.

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