Conte favourite to become first Premier League manager to be sacked

Champions Chelsea suffered a disappointing start to their Premier League title defence, as they suffered a 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley.

"It was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good", Conte said.

"Alvaro has a good space to improve himself".

Asked why he was down on his team's prospects, Conte again eluded to transfer business when he replied: "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

A sense of injustice spurred on Chelsea's riposte, which only grew when Cesc Fabregas became the second player to walk, for a second yellow card, less than ten minutes after substitute Alvaro Morata had reduced the arrears to 3-1.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 2.29-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq , a 2.47-to-1 ratio favored decliners. The data comes amid tepid inflation that has remained below the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target, despite low unemployment.

Marcos Alonso's long-range drive was tipped over by Tom Heaton as Chelsea registered their first shot on target early in the second half, while Morata came on to replace the ineffective Michy Batshuayi in attack.

"I'm not anxious because we have to trust in our work".

In other results of matches also played on Saturday, Miguel Britos scored a controversial 93rd-minute equaliser for Watford as Liverpool were held 3-3 in a thrilling game at Vicarage Road.

"There was one player in an Everton shirt today who from the first second to the last second was comfortable on the pitch", Everton manager Ronald Koeman said.

It was not until April that northwest side Burnley enjoyed an away win in the Premier League last season and the significance of Saturday's victory in London was not lost on Vokes. This conclusion can be made, judging by the results of the team at the pre-season fees, as well as looking at the list of injured players.

"It's very hard at this club to make massive strides", the Englishman added.

"There are a lot of big games coming so it's important that we remind ourselves of that".

"We conceded three goals too easily".

"You can see that in our preseason, in every friendly game I played the best formation and it happened also today, because my choice was to put the players we have in this moment. That is something that we've got to continue to work on".
