GETTY Chris Sutton thinks Antonio Conte could walk away

They've already got off to a good start with a 1-0 win in the Europa League.

Burnley - It was a decent season for it last time, but this one will be far tougher and it hasn't signed the quality to keep its status in the Premier League. Burnley, on the other hand, appear to be doing just fine at the moment and we can see them causing plenty of problems to their more illustrious opponents at Stamford Bridge. That, in fact, he thrives on it.

Burnley on Saturday shocked nine-man Chelsea 3-2 in their opening game of the 2017/2018 English Premier League (EPL) season at Stamford Bridge.

Despite the dire performance, the majority of the 41, 616 fans still cheered head coach Antonio Conte's name from the stands. That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley .

"I can't think of a reason why Chelsea would sell him", Neville told Sky.

Chelsea cruised to the title last season, eventually finishing seven points clear of rivals Tottenham, but Conte insists six teams are capable of winning the league this time around. To take over a team 11th in the top flight the year before and comfortably win the title was a fantastic achievement. Then when Chelsea played Bournemouth, Ake was not allowed to play against his parent club and Eddie Howe's team were without one of their key defenders.

Danny Rose and Danny Drinkwater this week joined the lengthy list of names to which the champions have been linked this summer, alongside ongoing targets such as Juventus's Alex Sandro and Internazionale's Antonio Candreva. They knew what they were doing and their manager is very driven. "If the club decides to send on loan players for their development it's because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea". Despite his instant success at the club, a recent deal signed by Conte did not extend his tenure, while a publicised dispute with Costa resulted in the star striker's isolation and likely exit.

The other woman who was visiting was injured but managed to escape and hide in a neighboring backyard until help could arrive. The accused, Bobby Vanderhall, was kicked out of his mother's house and was homeless at the time, police told NBC.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata feels he is being unfairly criticised for his Community Shield penalty miss, although he accepts that his price tag invites extra scrutiny. "I'm trying to do my best every day".

Conte also started Jeremie Boga, 20, and placed 19-year-old Kyle Scott, Charly Musonda, 20, and Andreas Christensen, 21, on the bench.

Many people wondered just what Conte was playing at, especially after seeing the club lose Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, and it seems that Garth Crooks has said what everyone else has been thinking in terms of the situation - and blasted Conte for his stupidity and rash actions.

Weather issues throughout the day meant the action was pushed into a later hour, and into the subsequent darkness. Rod Pampling already knew he wasn't making the cut, so he had some fun on the ninth instead.
