Costa has been ostracized from the Chelsea squad, after Conte sent him a text message telling him to look for a new club and the former Juventus coach is not ready to change his mind.

Antonio Conte: "Burnley are a really good team". In those matches, Chelsea won three matches and the other two matches ended in a draw.

"We lost our composure after this red card (to Gary Cahill) and we have to improve a lot in this aspect". The fact that Moses will have to serve a one-match ban following his sending off in the FA Cup final, can come as good news for new arrival Rudiger from Roma.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?


August 12, 2017 at 17:00, in one of the matches that will open the first round of the English Premier League will be a duel at the stadium "Stamford Bridge", in which Chelsea will confront Burnley.

Goals from substitute Alvaro Morata and David Luiz brought Chelsea back into the game, but Cesc Fabregas's dismissal for two bookable offences meant Conte's men finished the game with nine men.

Today we had three injured players missing and one missing for a ban.

Ward continued his run and Cork played a perfectly-weighted pass over the head of N'Golo Kante and Ward took a superb first touch on his chest to take himself away from the midfielder and tee himself up.


Chelsea were defeated 3-2 by Burnley on the opening day of our 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

"I don't know if this season could be more difficult than last season", Conte told reporters on Friday.

"It allows our players just that little edge of growth". We had to get on, get the job done and I'm pleased we have done that.

In total 20 players have left this summer, with the likes of Nemanja Matic, Nathan Ake, Bertrand Traore and Nathaniel Chalobah all moving on permanent deals, while Kurt Zouma is one of many who have departed on loan.
