Chelsea Captain Gary Cahill Sent Off Early, Blues Fall Behind

PLAYER RATINGS: Cahill, Luiz, Batshuayi and Fabregas all endure nightmare starts

The three-at-the-back system has worked very well for them.

For Burnley, they have brought in five players over the summer, with 18 leaving. "So that result is huge, a massive win for us at the start of the season". I think I'm the coach of this team. Finally, Diego Costa remains away from the squad following his public fallout with Antonio Conte and the club over the summer.

Chelsea finished 10th in the table the following season they won the EPL title in 2015/16 season.

It was a nervous time for Burnley fans as Chelsea continued to press.

He has so many qualities that make him a better fit for Chelsea than Lukaku.

The Chelsea manager strongly rejected the idea that his starting XI - that included a 20-year-old Jeremie Boga with a still unfit Alvaro Morata on the bench - was a "message" to the board about transfers, stressing he would never risk a result like that.

Instead of the two attacking wingers, Conte gets the option of playing an extra striker and a midfielder, something that could solve the problems they faced while playing against Arsenal.

"I am not anxious because we have to trust in our work and today there were three injured players, Pedro, Hazard, Bakayoko, one player missed for a ban in Moses".

Manchester United hope Jose Mourinho's second-season formula yields results
The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof , midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad. If you are a Manchester United player you've got to have personality, you've got to have that aura about you.

A near two-hour delay held up the later starters, but when play resumed Matsuyama secured two more birdies to match the American. "I'm not exactly sure", the young lady said. "He made every putt around 20 feet, and was seven under after nine", Phelps said.

Bills trade Sammy Watkins to Rams, acquire Matthews
Watkins is going to command top dollar in free agency next year regardless of whether he has a Pro Bowl season or not. Matthews ends his time with the Eagles after three seasons, pulling in 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Loftus-Cheek has made the move across London to join Frank de Boer's Crystal Palace.

Though his ACL injury has temporarily halted his development as a Chelsea star, there is no doubt that Zouma has the potential to become one of the best defenders in the world with the right coaching.

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".

"My state of mind is clear, and at the moment I signed a new contract, and then I chose to stay, to work for this club, and then to try and give every day 120% in the work for my club."For my players, yeah, then, the situation is very clear and I'm happy to do this job, and I'm trying..."

Fortunately, the Blues face-off against Burnley, not that much of a formidable team. A performance like this, maybe somewhat hard to come by with the amount of action he will surely face. Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool. you can go on.

These sides last met at Stamford Bridge last August, with Chelsea running out comfortable 3-0 winners.

"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", Conte told Sky Sports, referencing the FA Cup final and Community Shield, when Chelsea also had players sent off. Morata will be looking to impress his manager and the home support, the striker could run riot on his debut especially with the likes of Pedro, Fabregas and Willian providing the ammunition.
