Burnley 3-2 Chelsea: Reigning Premier League champs shocked in opening game

Chelsea vs Burnley

I don't want sympathy over Blues' lack of depth, maintains Conte

He said: "I must admit, it's a very important amount".

Next up for the Blues, who have now lost their last three competitive matches, is a tough trip to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley next weekend. Key to their success was a 13-game winning streak that stretched from October to January. The Clarets were one of the sides to take points off Chelsea last season in a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor, but it is no secret that Burnley struggled on the road.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, the BT Sport pundit said: "The mentality has got to improve".

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.

'You don't want to come to a club and behave like you are passing through.

Frank Lampard spoke exclusively to ESPN FC.

August 12, 2017 at 17:00, in one of the matches that will open the first round of the English Premier League will be a duel at the stadium "Stamford Bridge", in which Chelsea will confront Burnley.

"We have to play Champions League". It's something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day.

FRANK LAMPARD believes Chelsea face a massive challenge to retain their Premier League title without the "irreplaceable" John Terry but says, in Antonio Conte, they have the ideal manager to keep them at the top.

'But they have a superb manager in charge. "I'm not saying they're completely conflicting".

"It's a big win for us because they're a fine side".

"Because through my choices I put the best players that we have with this moment".

"I thought the referee was really good". I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate playing with nine or 10 men in the next game.

Although they were beaten by rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final, few Chelsea supporters would have asked for a better return from 2016-17. They knew what they were doing and their manager is very driven.

I think he is a quality player with many attributes to his game that can help Chelsea going forward.

"I repeat: my only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players". I'm not looking for sympathy. I want to win. They've gone down a certain route with strength in their team and they are potential winners.
