Nine-man Chelsea lose 3-2 to Burnley

Nine-man Chelsea lose 3-2 to Burnley

Huddersfield Town made a dream start to their debut season in the Premier League as they beat Crystal Palace 3-nil away.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits his players lost their cool as they were reduced to nine men in a shock 3-2 Premier League defeat to Burnley.

It left the Italian manager concerned by the inability of his players to control their emotions when a team-mate was dismissed.

While there will be plenty of deflated Chelsea fans around the world, there was one major positive to be taken from Saturday.

"I don't want to see these tackles (Cahill challenge) given a red card, but that's the law".

Earlier, the youth clashed with the security forces in Awneera to break the cordon around the village on Saturday. The two soldiers who have lost their lives have been identified Sepoy Ilayaraja P and Sepoy Gowai Sumedh Waman.

"I have to start to study a new formation with 10 players because when it happens with regularity you must be anxious". The Blues couldn't have played a worse first half of football, falling behind to Burnley 3-0 before getting up off the canvas and clawing two back in the second half to finish the match 3-2.

Sub Alvaro Morata pulled a goal back before setting up David Luiz to make it 3-2 late on, but Sean Dyche's men clung on for a famous win.

"In the second half it was very hard to change the final result, despite the great commitment, the great desire, the great will of my players". We had to get on, get the job done and I'm pleased we have done that. Today we had three injured players missing and one missing for a ban.

Conte played down any sense of crisis or fear of a meltdown similar to 2015-16, insisting Chelsea would "find a solution". "I picked the best players that we have at this moment", Conte said.

Chelsea dominated en route to winning the Premier League last season.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's bleak afternoon began in the 14th minute when new club captain Cahill was shown his first red card in five seasons.

"It quietens down a few stories", Dyche said to Sky Sports.

"It's a big win for us because they're a fine side".

"We're written off at the start of every season". Chelsea are a top-class side and it is tough to come here and dominant possession, even when they have 10 men, but we were too flippant with the ball and we gave it away too cheaply. "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.
