Chelsea set new record in abysmal start against Burnley

Chelsea set new record in abysmal start against Burnley

Burnley goal-hero Sam Vokes said his side had achieved a "huge win" after they launched their Premier League season with a remarkable 3-2 victory away to reigning champions Chelsea on Saturday.

Frank Lampard has warned that Chelsea will need "an even stronger mentality" if they want to retain the Premier League title this season. "I went for Chelsea because they had such a good set-up previous year". What happens in the transfer market, the club is trying to do their best.

There is still the lingering issue of just where Costa will be going. Is new midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko a significant upgrade on Nemanja Matic, who was sold to rival Manchester United in one of the most head-scratching moves of the summer window?

The Clarets have welcomed in Jack Cork from Swansea, Jonathan Walters and Phil Bardsley from Stoke City, and a few lesser known squad players as well.

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.

Problem is, it was clearly accidental but he was cautioned and that could prove costly later in the season. They greeted the half time whistle with the sort of cheers usually reserved for a glorious victory.

Conte has a number worries heading into the first game, Bakayoko is injured and key man Eden Hazard is out until September with his knee injury.

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.

Dyche will be without striker Andre Gray as the forward is set to join Watford after a deal was agreed on Wednesday.

Tony Pulis celebrated signing an extended contract in the best possible fashion as West Brom began the new Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth at The Hawthorns.

Burnley, however, have lost all three of their opening day clashes in the top flight. It's a fair comment to say that out loud because we're all talking about how the second season is more hard than the first.

"I think I had to leave Madrid", he added.

'I don't think Morata will do it that way but he has to come in and be confident, believe in himself and show the quality he has possesses.

"My state of mind is clear, and at the moment I signed a new contract, and then I chose to stay, to work for this club, and then to try and give every day 120% in the work for my club."For my players, yeah, then, the situation is very clear and I'm happy to do this job, and I'm trying..." So at the other end is where they will have to somehow try to stop the Blues. Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool. you can go on.

Burnley made it 3-0 before half-time when Vokes headed in Defour's free-kick.
