EPL: Burnley Shock Chelsea, Watford Hold Liverpool, Huddersfield Win

Antonio Conte sees'two faces of Chelsea as champions are beaten by Burnley

Dyche believes the shock win means his players now have room to breathe after being widely tipped to struggle in this season's Premier League after a transfer window that has seen them sell key duo Michael Keane and Andre Gray, while not spending big money to replace them.

Half-time substitute Morata and Luiz reduced the arrears in the second half, either side of Fabregas's 81st-minute dismissal for a second yellow card, but Burnley hung on for a famous victory.

Conte said his halftime team talk, which along with the introduction of new striker Alvaro Morata who scored on his debut, appeared to completely transform the game, involved pointing out how the players had panicked and lost their shape.

As well as defender Terry and midfielder Matic, Chelsea have sold Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth, while last season's top scorer Diego Costa has been told he is free to leave. "Instead we conceded three goals and despite a good second half performance it was hard to change the result".

Heaton made an excellent stop from Alonso's curling free-kick, but Chelsea did get a goal back with 21 minutes remaining, Morata swooping in to beat the Burnley keeper with a diving header after Willian's delivery found him in space.

"We tried to keep the ball second half and contain them, but they're a fine side, they threw caution to the wind because they had nothing to lose".

Replacing Michy Batshuayi with almost an hour gone, Morata entered the game with his team 3-0 down after a nightmarish first half.

Britos was standing nearly on the line before nudging in the loose ball after Simon Mignolet pushed it onto the bar.

Mooy's Huddersfield travelled to London for their first top-flight clash in nearly five decades and came away with three points after a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

"The equaliser was offside".

"The club are trying to do their best", said the Italian.

To win away on day one is something special given the context of last season.
