Champions Chelsea beaten at home in first game

Nemanja Matic Premier League Manchester United

Nemanja Matic Premier League Manchester United

It was a dispiriting afternoon for Conte, who won the title in his first season at the club but has complained that Chelsea have not signed enough new players while allowing several to leave.

Chelsea very almost completed a dramatic comeback in the second half, with goals from substitute Alvaro Morata and David Luiz, but a red card for Cesc Fabregas meant that their attempt to recover was carried out with nine men, and Burnley were resolute enough to secure the win.

There was no such nonsense from Antonio Conte, but he must be regretting his comment last month when he said "wants to avoid a Mourinho season", referring to the 2015 meltdown.

Bookmakers, with one eye on making headlines, have Conte as 7-2 favourite to follow Mourinho's lead and get the sack the season after winning the title at Chelsea. We tried until the end to reach a good result against Burnley - it was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good.

Conte, who named £58million Spain striker Alvaro Mata on the bench, denied a suggestion that his team selection was a message to the board that he is disgruntled over Chelsea's transfer activity this summer.

But instead of replacing a defensive player for Morata, Conte made it a straight-swap for striker Michy Batshuayi.
