Burnley Proved Doubters Wrong With Victory Over Chelsea — Dyche


Conte was angry with his Chelsea players and spoke about their inability to keep their heads in his post-match press conference.

The Blues were beaten 3-2 by the Clarets as the defence of their Premier League title got off to a dreadful start.

"They (the critics) are already killing me so I know what awaits me".

The last time Chelsea and Burnley met on opening day, their respective seasons could not have ended more differently. 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. "Also me, I have to study a new formation with 10 players online, because when it happens with this regularity you must be worried".

After Chelsea's new captain Gary Cahill was shown a straight red card in the 14th minute at Stamford Bridge, a Sam Vokes brace and a Stephen Ward rocket saw Burnley go 3-0 up before half-time.

"But our first half we kept losing our heads - after the red card we lost our heads a bit, conceded three goals and then it's very difficult to change the final result. I wanted to win here, not to send a message".

"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.

"We are champions. We have to face every game in the right way". But he needs time to understand, to adapt to our style of football, above all for a striker.

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.

The Blues cruise with a makeshift lineup while Burnley continue their away struggles from last season. Do not cut, copy or lift any content from this website without our consent.
