Chelsea start Premier League title defence on losing note


Chelsea forward Pedro has been ruled out of the Premier League champions' opener against Burnley on Saturday due to an ankle injury, while new signing Antonio Rudiger could start.

Overall, this weekend represents a chance for Chelsea to begin on a high note. Álvaro is working very well, improving his physical condition a lot in the last 10 days, and he is starting to understand what I want from him in the game.

"I'm sure there would have been meetings in preseason between Conte and his players letting them know that".

'If the club decides to loan out players for their development it is because they're not ready to play for Chelsea'. And then I repeat: "the club is trying to do their best on the transfer market". My only task is to be focused on the pitch.

"It's simple. I think I'm the coach of this team". It was a hard situation, I know: it was leaving a team that is my home and that is winning everything right now.

In his press conference ahead of tomorrow's game Antonio Conte was quick to praise his squad and the commitment they have shown in preparation for the new Premier League season.

"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play calmly and to stay on my path", Morata told Marca. These are the most important things for us.

Here he picks his Premier League teams to beat, bolter to watch out for and the clubs set for relegation.

Last season left ambiguous conclusions on the game team Burnley. "Last season they had a good season and we have to pay great attention tomorrow", the Italian said.

"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".

"He's a good player". They're strong and physical.

Chelsea was beaten to the signature of striker Romelu Lukaku by United, while Conte has also acknowledged that he tried to sign right back Kyle Walker, who ended up leaving Tottenham to join Manchester City.

With Willian receiving the ball on the right, the former Real Madrid striker managed to lose his marker in the box, guiding his diving header into the far corner. The Clarets were tipped for relegation but had an wonderful home record a year ago, they ended up finishing 14th and surprising a lot of people. It depends, Conte said, on their ability to deal with consistent pressure, the kind their manager seems to put naturally upon himself.
