Antonio Conte sees 'two faces' of Chelsea in shock defeat to Burnley

Wayne Rooney marked his Premier League return to Goodison Park with a dream winning goal as Everton got their 2017/18 season off to the flawless start.

Almost a week on from attracting a fair bit of criticism for his substitute appearance in the Community Shield, the Spanish worldwide made his home debut for the club, again coming on from the bench in Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley.

Chelsea begin the new season with a surprise defeat. "It was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good", Conte said. You don't know me very well and you can see in our pre-season and in every friendly games I have always played the best formation and it happened the same also today.

Conte believes that he might need to train his players with one or two men fewer after the spate of red cards they have received in recent games but he didn't want to talk about the referee's performance.

Chelsea had an inauspicious start to the season when they lost Cahill to a straight red card within the first 15 minutes and Sam Vokes opened the scoring for Burnley at Stamford Bridge midway through the first half.

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.

It was to get worse for the champions in the first half though as Vokes made it 3-0 to Burnley in the 42nd minute when the striker headed a wonderful Defour cross into the corner of the net. Manager Jose Mourinho lasted only 11 more league games. Cahill, the captain, and Fabregas join a lengthy absentee list for next weekend's away match at Tottenham, which was runner-up last season.

Antonio Conte was without Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez and Victor Moses for the encuonter.

There are three weeks left in the transfer window and Chelsea desperately needs reinforcements, with the Champions League also on the schedule.

Conte's matchday squad selection exposed the worrying lack of depth in Chelsea's squad.

City needed to show patience, with Sergio Aguero breaking the deadlock in the 70th followed by an own goal from Lewis Dunk in the 75th.

The Blues did manage to rally and threaten to come out the other side with a draw. The main criticism of the Reds last season was that, while they could score with the best of them, their defense was broken down far too easily far too often, especially on set pieces.

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mo Salah scored for Liverpool, which was without Coutinho amid interest in the playmaker from Barcelona. Having squandered numerous chances to secure the win, Liverpool were punished deep into injury time when Greek defender Britos headed in a late leveller.
