Watch: Ireland International Stephen Ward Scores Outrageous Half-Volley Against Chelsea
Becoming the first ever title-wining side to concede three goals in the first game of their following season, Chelsea were rocked by a red card given to captain Gary Cahill inside just 15 minutes of the game. "We didn't lose our balance and I have to be proud about the great commitment, the great desire, the great will of my players even though it was very hard to change the result in the second half". Stops only that Burnley plays on the road.
"It was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good", Conte said.
"You don't know me very well", Conte said, replying to the suggestion he might have meant to highlight the club's lukewarm summer recruitment. "He has a lot of space to improve, he is a young player and he needs to continue to work and to improve".

Chelsea went down to nine men via a red card to Fabregas with about 10 minutes to go. It's a game the Blues really ought to win, though their opponents did establish themselves as a very solid mid-table outfit last season, and have strengthened in the transfer market.
There's talk of signing Leicester City's Danny Drinkwater, but any club who hear Chelsea knocking will quickly pick up the scent of desperation as they scramble to add players before he window slams shut.
Diego Costa was as important a player as any for Conte last season, however, the bad relationship between the two has made sure that Costa won't play again for Chelsea.
