Chelsea's title defence has gotten off to a terrible start 3-0 down and a man down
Speaking immediately after the Burnley game, Conte cast doubt on Pedro's availability, and rued the suspensions for Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas following their red cards at Stamford Bridge.
"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.
Referee Craig Pawson, right on the spot, instantly brandished a red card.
After two minutes, Marcos Alsonso became the first Chelsea player of the season to go on the ref's book for a foul on Johann Berg Gudmunsson. The Spaniard then provided an assist for David Luiz to reduce the deficit.
Matt Lowton's right-wing cross found Vokes and he sent a bouncing volley into the far corner, with Thibaut Courtois unable to get across in time.
Stephen Ward compounded Chelsea's misery just after the half-hour mark when he controlled a long pass and beat Antonio Rudiger to lash home from a tight angle on the left.
The visitors were the better side overall with a disciplined, energetic and ruthless first-half display that saw them put three past the Blues, with Sam Vokes netting twice.
Guardiola: City Spending Cannot Be Sustained
After capitalising on a Brighton back pass, was left one on one with Ryan but sliced his shot well wide of the Brighton goal . The attacking duo of Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero have formed a lethal partnership, as was evident in the pre-season.
Antonio Conte must have had some words with his side at half-time because Chelsea emerged energised after the break.
Chelsea substitute Alvaro Morata, a summer capture from Real Madrid, grabbed his first goal for the club with just over 20 minutes to play with a close-range header from a Willian cross as the Blues started to pile on the pressure.
The Blues forced goalkeeper Tom Heaton into a couple of smart saves, in a hope of regaining a foothold in the match.
Morata thought he had his second when he bundled the ball over the line from Christensen's cross, only to see the linesman had flagged for offside.
The first half pleased me because although Chelsea went to 10 men it was not easy.
The champions won 19 of 21 matches across all competitions at Stamford Bridge last season while Burnley took a scant seven points at Turf Moor all season.
The champions had two men sent off in the game, Gary Cahill in the 14th minute and Cescc Fabregas in the 81st minute.
