Burnley 3-2 Chelsea: Reigning Premier League champs shocked in opening game

13 Août 2017

"We scored three good goals and I think when you are talking about who you are playing against and where you are playing, that's up there as one of the best 45 minutes of my time here", said the manager, who joined Burnley in 2012.

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

Goals from substitute Alvaro Morata and David Luiz brought Chelsea back into the game, but Cesc Fabregas's dismissal for two bookable offences meant Conte's men finished the game with nine men.

"We must pay attention and try to keep our heads the rest of the game".

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. 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.

Morata came off the Chelsea bench just before the hour as the club-record signing replaced Batshuayi, although there was no sign of Diego Costa following the striker's high-profile falling-out with Conte.

"We conceded three goals too easily". It's a big win for us, even with 10 men they're a fine side.

Secretary Mattis says USA is 'ready' to counter North Korean threat
Trump's initial "fire and fury" comments, saying Americans shouldn't be unsettled by recent rhetoric about the crisis. The two discussed responses to North Korean provocations and the security situation on the Korean peninsula, he said.

"Instead we conceded three goals and in the second half it was very hard to change the final result despite the great commitment, will and desire of my players".

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mo Salah scored for Liverpool, which was without Coutinho amid interest in the playmaker from Barcelona.

Antonio Conte might not be happy with the lack of discipline shown by his senior players, but the spirit and fight shown by his side should be a positive sign, although Chelsea must avoid these self-inflicted wounds in the future.

Frank de Boer made a losing start as Palace manager after a Joel Ward own goal and a Steve Mounie double earned Huddersfield a 3-0 win on their return to the top flight after an absence of 45 years.

Wayne Rooney crowned his first appearance for formative club Everton since 2004 by notching the victor in a 1-0 win over Stoke City, heading in Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross for his 199th Premier League goal.

He left Everton in 2004 as a precocious teenager.

West Bromwich Albion beat Bournemouth 1-0 thanks to a goal on his debut by defender Ahmed Hegazi. The Belgian was used primarily as a back-to-goal target man, with 55.6 per cent of his passes played backward.
