Premier League: When and where to watch Gameweek 1 matches, coverage on TV and live streaming

Chelsea lost to both Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in pre-season before producing a flat display against Arsenal on Sunday. "But we must be ready, we must be ready to try to do our best tomorrow". I'm not anxious because we have to trust in our work and today there were three injured players, Pedro, Hazard, Bakayoko, and one player missing for a ban, [Victor] Moses.

Conte said: "Morata is very important and it's important that he now adapts himself to our philosophy - today he played a good game with the right intensity".

Chelsea broke their transfer record to sign Morata from Real Madrid last month in a deal worth a reported £70 million (Dh332.4m), with the Spain worldwide recruited to replace Diego Costa, who is set to leave the club this summer.

And boss Conte, who is set to fine bad-boy Diego Costa £300,000 for going AWOL, blasted: "We just lost our heads".

He added: "I left because I want to succeed in football, I want to do great things, and I'm in the best place to do it". Why do I have to send a message? Why? Why? He asks me the opposite of what my previous coaches have asked me. He had a tough game to handle and he did well overall. (Chelsea) had to respond, which they did, so credit to them, but we were disappointed with the two goals. And if they lose Philippe Coutinho between now and the end of the transfer window they won't reach the top four. While the results didn't always go their way, the Clarets more often than not made things hard for the best teams in the Premier League. They have the opportunity to momentarily help us forget about their failed transfer dealings this summer.

Mee believes that Chelsea's new striker Alvaro Morata, who joined from Spanish champions Real Madrid last month, could pose a threat to Burnley defenders but is confident that team will come up with and stick to a solid game plan.

Flashback to two years ago on the opening day and Jose Mourinho's champions were reduced to 10 men and held 2-2 at home by unfancied Swansea. "I'm really pleased with our mentality".
