Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was disappointed with his side's discipline during their 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday. Chelsea were seven points clear, 10 points clear for a large part of the back end of last season.
It was indeed a splendid and one-sided first half for the visitors, who simply outplayed the 10-man reigning champions.
Burnley finished 16th in the table last season, and added five players in the summer to improve their chances. "But I've already adapted and I'm excited to play".
Chelsea is the league's best club on opening day. My only task is to be focused on the pitch. "I think honestly if you have to give an evaluation on paper, it's right to not put Chelsea as a favourite".

Burnley boss Sean Dyche praised Pawson's officiating of the game, insisting he had performed well in hard circumstances, and declared his team worthy winners.
"Behind the scenes he'll be saying the same message, but in a different way: 'This is going to be difficult and this is how we overcome that, by working hard and by doing the extra bits even more than we did past year'".
