Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will leave Stamford Bridge before Christmas claims Perry Groves
Burnley then capitalized with a ruthless display that saw them score 3 times before the break. Me, I have to start to study a new formation with ten or nine players. "That is something that we've got to continue to work on". Of other possible title contenders, Liverpool drew at Watford 3-3, after Arsenal beat Leicester 4-3 on Friday.
Chelsea have the added pressure of Champions League football this season, and could find themselves fielding a string of inexperienced youth players across all four competitions they will take part in, if they don't strengthen their ranks. It will be interesting to see, given his immediate impact, if Conte picks Morata from the start in their next game - a trip to Wembley stadium to face title rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Even when a man down Antonio Conte could not have predicted the capitulation that followed as Burnley stormed 3-0 ahead through two goals from Sam Vokes and a terrific strike by Stephen Ward.
"The first half pleased me because although Chelsea went to 10 men it was not easy". Manager Jose Mourinho lasted only 11 more league games.
There's a chance it could get worse before it gets better for the current Chelsea team.
Burnley's form at home and away contrasted sharply 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. But it's a big win. The problem, as ever, came at the other end.
"But our first half we kept losing our heads - after the red card we lost our heads a bit, conceded three goals and then it's very hard to change the final result".
"We have to improve a lot on this because after the first red for Cahill we lost our composure and conceded three".
The home side, under new manager Marco Silva, led twice through Stefano Okaka and Abdoulaye Doucoure but Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, with a penalty, both equalised. Still, the sight of Huddersfield in first place was something to behold. A relegation battle is likely to ensue in the coming months, but their fans will remember Week 1.
Wayne Rooney crowned his first appearance for formative club Everton since 2004 by notching the victor in a 1-0 win over Stoke City, heading in Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross for his 199th Premier League goal. It was his 199th Premier League goal and first for Everton since 2004.
