Chelsea manager Antonio Conte blamed a loss of composure after the Premier League champions were shocked 3-2 by Burnley in their opening game of the new season on Saturday.

In a very revealing interview with MARCA, Alvaro Morata admits the amount of money that Chelsea paid for him is very high, and that with that money comes heavy criticism. Stephen Ward powered in a 39th-minute second and Vokes headed a third, two minutes before half time.

"But our first half we kept losing our heads - after the red card we lost our heads, conceded two goals and then it's very difficult to change the final result". He didn't play a lot but I think he adapted himself to our style of football.

And it took 10 minutes after Cahill's red card for Burnley to make things worse for the home side with Sam Vokes putting the visitors ahead.

There are big expectations on Morata who is tasked with leading Chelsea's attack as the London club attempt to defend the Premier League title they won in emphatic fashion last season.

Jay Rodriguez , another off-season arrival for the Baggies, had gone close on a couple of occasions prior to Hegazi's header, while Bournemouth looked uncharacteristically bereft of attacking verve in their quest for an equaliser.

"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". I wanted to win, not to send a message to my club.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the game. New signings Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata could debut for the Blues at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea start their title defence against one of the few teams to nick a few points from them in the middle of last season. It's something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day, to be an extra hour each day in the training ground.

In the first game of the night, Miguel Britos scored a controversial 93rd-minute equaliser for Watford as Liverpool were held in a thrilling game at Vicarage Road.
