Chelsea start Premier League title defence on losing note

13 August 2017, 04:39 | Megan Pierce

As far as Burnley are concerned, Sean Dyche has no injury concerns and will travel with a full squad as they get ready to pay Stamford Bridge a visit for their first match of the season.

On his exit from Real Madrid, where he made 26 appearances last season, Morata said the situation had been "difficult".

In the short term, Chelsea start the season with Eden Hazard and Bakayoko out injured, while Morata is still getting used to his new teammates and may take time to settle.

"I don't think I need to adapt to the Premier League, but to my new coach". Finally, Diego Costa remains away from the squad following his public fallout with Antonio Conte and the club over the summer.

Flashback to two years ago on the opening day and Jose Mourinho's champions were reduced to 10 men and held 2-2 at home by unfancied Swansea.

New signing Alvaro Morata was introduced with an hour on the clock as he replaced Michy Batshuayi in a tactical substitution. This will no doubt have supporters worrying - as the Blues were dispatched by Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in the preseason - before a sluggish effort against Arsenal saw them defeated on penalties in the Community Shield.

Chelsea kick off their 2017/18 Premier League campaign tomorrow afternoon with a home fixture against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Following the suspension of Super Eagles star Victor Moses (for the red card in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal in May) who plays at right wing-back for the club, Conte revealed that Antonio Rudiger is likely to start at the same position in the absence of the Nigerian.

Burnley have a poor record in London, only winning once out of all their previous 16 attempts, that was against Crystal Palace in April however. Not one person believed Chelsea would win the title. Tiemoue Bakayoko's work in Ligue 1 was highly touted and many observers predict he could be a similar force to N'Golo Kante, while Willy Caballero adds another option between the posts.

"For me the striker is a really important role and it is very important to understand the position I want in the game and it is more hard to adapt than other roles".

Fortunately, the Blues face-off against Burnley, not that much of a formidable team. But you never know if he could pull off a couple of saves during the first half and go in at half-time, the Clarets may just grab a point and all thanks to their captain and goalkeeper.

"We kept going, kept probing and it's 3-0 at the interval".
