Burney puts the sword to reigning EPL champions Chelsea

13 August 2017, 06:57 | Charlene Valdez

Looking back at today and the defending champions are in action at 3PM against Burnley, with Antonio Conte hoping to get off to the best possible start to the season with his Chelsea side, maybe even seeing new signing Alvaro Morata get amongst the goals. It will be interesting to see, given his immediate impact, if Conte picks Morata from the start in their next game - a trip to Wembley stadium to face title rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

When asked if Pawson got the big decisions right, Conte replied: "Mmm.I prefer to not comment on the referee's decision and performance".

Captain Cahill was sent off just 14 minutes into the game as Burnley went on rampage, scoring three goals in the first half.

"It was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good", said Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Boos greeted both the halftime and fulltime whistle as Chelsea fans encountered the unusual feeling of a home loss under Conte, after 17 wins in 19 league games at Stamford Bridge last season.

"The first half I wasn't too happy with". Last year, then-champion Leicester lost at Hull 2-1 in its first match and its fortunes improved only after manager Claudio Ranieri was sacked.


Bakayoko was absent through injury against Burnley, along with star man Eden Hazard, while striker Diego Costa has been frozen out after being deemed surplus to requirements. "This win won't do us any harm at all but it won't make our season".

David Silva fed Sergio Aguero to run through and beat goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and five minutes later Lewis Dunk headed Fernandinho's cross into his own net.

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.

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.

NAN also reports that Wayne Rooney scored the winning goal on his top-flight return to Everton after 13 years.

Debutant Ahmed Hegazi's first-half header earned West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, while Mauricio Pellegrino's tenure as Southampton manager began with a 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City. 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.
