Chelsea Lining Up £25m Move For Premier League Player

Chelsea v Burnley- Premier League- Stamford Bridge

It was a day of horror for Chelsea, English Premier League defending champions as they slumped at home 0-3 in the hands of Burnley in less than 42 minutes of play.

The visitors shocked Stamford Bridge when they made it 3-0 shortly before half-time when Vokes got his second of the game with a well placed header in the 43rd minute.

"Morata is very important and it's important that he now adapts himself to our philosophy - today he played a good game with the right intensity".

The story of the match was nearly encapsulated in the first few minutes of play when Marcos Alonso's reckless challenge was punished with a yellow and Ben Mee headed straight at Thibault Courtois from the ensuing free kick.

A red card for the captain, Gary Cahill, on 13 minutes was followed by goals from Sam Vokes, Steven Ward and Vokes again as Burnley produced a performance as controlled and purposeful as Chelsea were flaccid.

Cesc Fabregas, who earned his first yellow card for dissent and a second for another studs up tackle on Jack Cork, really should know better at this stage of his career.

It's a long time since we had so much quality [in attack]". "He's a collective player and an intelligent player". Vardy slid the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross, only for Danny Welbeck to stroke level on half-time.

Heaton made an excellent stop from Alonso's curling free-kick, but Chelsea did get a goal back with 21 minutes remaining, Morata swooping in to beat the Burnley keeper with a diving header after Willian's delivery found him in space. The Spaniard then provided an assist for David Luiz to reduce the deficit.

But that soon changed as new boy Alvaro Morata, a £60million buy from Real Madrid, entered the fray on 58 minutes, replacing ineffectual Michy Batshuayi.

With the clock winding down, David Luiz connected with a flick from Morata and pounded the ball into the goal for Chelsea's second of the game.

Following his side's defeats in the Community Shield and on the opening day of the Premier League season, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is more desperate than ever to add to his squad before the end of the transfer window.

Conte will have some thinking to do, along with the board, as both Cahill and Fabregas will be missing for next week's match with Tottenham Hotspur.

The second half will shut will show whether the 10 man Chelsea could turn the match around.
