Burnley stun Premiership Champions, Chelsea in a five goal thriller

"I'm looking forward to an exciting new season both here and in Europe and can't wait to begin working with the team".

"It won't be easy to repeat an fantastic season like previous year", he said. With young players they are not used to it.

"Winning away from home on the first days quietens down some stories - we're written off at the start of every season". Conte can use him in so many different ways, such as by allowing him to drop deep, link up play and hold up the ball to bring others into play.

Diego Costa would also open his Premier League account on the day, by scoring the equalizer and reminding fans of what it is like to have a proper striker leading their side.

It was indeed a splendid and one-sided first half for the visitors, who simply outplayed the 10-man reigning champions.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits this game is a very tough one for his side to begin the season with, but has reminded everyone that the Clarets will be judged on their season as a whole as opposed to exclusively on this fixture at Stamford Bridge.

Nigeria's Victor Moses could only watch from the stands as he is on suspension for the Premier League opener.

Jenner and her new boyfriend first sparked dating rumors in April when they attended Coachella. As CI readers know, Kylie is 20-years-old now, but she can't wait to turn 21.

The build-up to the game had been marred by Conte's visible frustration with his side's transfer business over the summer, with Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger their main acquisitions so far.

Though his ACL injury has temporarily halted his development as a Chelsea star, there is no doubt that Zouma has the potential to become one of the best defenders in the world with the right coaching.

A final option is for Morata to join Batshuayi up front should Chelsea choose to play in a 3-5-2 formation with Willian moving to play centrally behind the strike duo. "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

"Burnley are a really good team". A performance like this, maybe somewhat hard to come by with the amount of action he will surely face. "At 3-0 up we should have made it safer, but we got there in the end".

Head coach Antonio Conte provided a fitness update ahead of the game at Stamford Bridge, revealing Pedro has not recovered from a problem he sustained before being sent off in the Community Shield against Arsenal last week.

Going into Saturday's home match against Burnley, it could even be argued that Chelsea is beginning the season in a weaker position despite a summer outlay of around 140 million pounds ($180 million).
