Chelsea Lining Up £25m Move For Premier League Player

Looking back at today and the defending champions are in action at 3PM against Burnley, with Antonio Conte hoping to get off to the best possible start to the season with his Chelsea side, maybe even seeing new signing Alvaro Morata get amongst the goals. The jeers were likely directed at the match officials, with Chelsea having a player sent off in both halves.

Conte said he did not want to answer questions about Costa, but tellingly conceded: "For me it's in the past".

Burnley, a team that registered one away win all last season, found themselves 3-0 up at half-time following the sending off of Chelsea captain Gary Cahill inside the first 15 minutes.

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. Last year, then-champion Leicester lost at Hull 2-1 in its first match and its fortunes improved only after manager Claudio Ranieri was sacked.

He brushed aside questions about reported tension with Chelsea's board over signing new players and said he was not anxious because three key players - Eden Hazard, Pedro and Victor Moses - could return from injury and suspension for Chelsea's next game against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

David Silva fed Sergio Aguero to run through and beat goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and five minutes later Lewis Dunk headed Fernandinho's cross into his own net.

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

"Before that, we'd kept a good shape and I don't think they opened us up or made too many chances".

Liverpool conceded in second-half injury time to draw at Watford 3-3, exposing the defensive weaknesses that blighted the team's title challenge last season.

Alvaro Morata reduced the deficit on his first league start since a club-record move from Real Madrid for 58 million pounds ($75 million) in the 69th, as Chelsea improved after halftime.
