Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn't want any sympathy

Nemanja Matic left Chelsea for Manchester United this summer

After Captain Gary Cahill received a straight red card for a reckless tackle on Steven Defour just after 14 minutes of action, Sam Vokes put Burnley ahead in the 24th minute, volleying in Matthew Lowton's cross.

Alvaro Morata nearly inspired a comeback as a second-half substitute, scoring before setting up a late strike for David Luiz, a goal that came after Cesc Fabregas' removal for a second yellow had seen Chelsea reduced to nine men. "If the club decides to send on loan players for their development it's because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea".

"We tried until the end to reach a good result against Burnley". However, David Luiz ensured a tense finish when he volleyed home in the 88th after being teed up by the influential Morata.

Jon Walters has seen enough of his new club Burnley to be sure there will be no case of "second season syndrome" at Turf Moor.

But responding to Wenger's comments, Conte said at Friday's pre-match press conference: 'My message is that I'm not looking for sympathy from any coaches for this situation. Burnley will have to be compact defensively and hope that Chelsea's attack fumbles without their best player. "Our fight in the second half was very good".

I do think Alexandre Lacazette will be clinical but I can't guarantee he'll score in the big games, so I'd back him each-way. So Jose Mourihno has strengthened in the areas he's needed to and they look stronger and will challenge for the title.

It was to get worse for the champions in the first half though as Vokes made it 3-0 to Burnley in the 42nd minute when the striker headed a wonderful Defour cross into the corner of the net.

Antonio Conte stressed the need throughout the summer for Chelsea to hit the ground running this season but supporters were left with a sense of Deja vu after their first half against Burnley.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp protested that Watford's stoppage-time equaliser by Manuel Britos in an entertaining 3-3 draw should have been disallowed for offside.

"The equaliser was offside. I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

Wayne Rooney scored on his return to Everton from Manchester United to give the Merseysiders a 1-0 victory at home to Stoke City. "If he gets 4 this will be one hell of a game".
