"I've only had two pre-season games, 15 minutes officially and a missed penalty, and they're already killing me, so I know what's ahead".
"That's a huge result - a lot was made of our away from last season", he said.
"You might as well play them early, you might catch them by surprise, you never know", Mee told British media. Yet the suspicion remains Conte enjoys the adversity he believes his club to be facing.
Yet again we are seeing a transfer window whereby Chelsea are spending big whilst they loan out their young talent to teams across Europe. He will not talk about Diego Costa, last season's leading goalscorer who has been frozen out of the first team and is now in legal dispute with the club.
Pampling hits bad , rushed tee shot at US PGA
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.
However, the main worry for the Chelsea supporters will be a possible repetition of the 2015/16 season, when they hovered just a few points above the relegation zone at Christmas, as they went on to finish 10th by the end of the season.
It was a nervous time for Burnley fans as Chelsea continued to press.
The Blues boss revealed a fresh injury blow with the news that Pedro has been ruled out of the Burnley clash after suffering an ankle injury during the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal last weekend.

Asked if he would start against Burnley on Saturday, Conte said: "He's working very well and starting to understand our idea of football ".
Burnley have a poor record in London, only winning once out of all their previous 16 attempts, that was against Crystal Palace in April however.
He added: "I left because I want to succeed in football, I want to do great things, and I'm in the best place to do it". "They could have bought six or seven new players but everyone is upping their game, so I think it's a fair comment no matter what". He was good in some games, inexperienced in others. A performance like this, maybe somewhat hard to come by with the amount of action he will surely face. Here, these should keep you going until Match of the Day.
"The sending off of Cahill was a key moment, because to play the rest of the game with 10 and then nine men is not easy", said Conte. We have all seen how much of a difference the Benglian makes for Chelsea, with his trickery and pace, both up front, and on the wings. Kante in the holding role could also be too strong for the Burnley midfield to even get the ball far forward enough for a sniff on goal.
