Gary Lineker reacts to Alvaro Morata's first goal in Chelsea v Burnley

Chelsea vs Burnley

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was disappointed with his side's discipline during their 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday.

Thankfully for the Chelsea boss the linesman had his flag raised for offside and the goal was disallowed.

"I hope I can score more than 20 goals".

Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas both got sent off as Burnley stunned the champions.

Stephen Ward chested down a ball over the defence before smashing a fierce drive with his left foot into the back of the net.

"Before that, we'd kept a good shape and I don't think they opened us up or made too many chances".

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.

The operation occurred at an awkward and tense moment, amid the war of words between the United States and North Korea. McCain illegally entered the waters near the Meiji Reef Islands without permission of the Chinese government.

An ankle knock Pedro sustained in the Community Shield penalty shootout loss to Arsenal could mean Morata will start alongside Michy Batshuayi, who scored the decisive goal in Chelsea's title success at West Brom in May. "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

After N'Golo Kante had seen a shot deflected onto the roof of the net in first-half stoppage time and Marcos Alonso had been denied by Tom Heaton, Willian began to haul Chelsea back into the contest.

Jack Cork can potentially make his debut in midfield.

But David Luiz fired home from inside the box after being set up by a Morata header to set up a frantic final few minutes, during which Burnley struck the post through Robbie Brady before holding on to take the three points.

Big-spending Manchester City won 2-0 at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion, while Huddersfield Town marked their top-flight return with a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace that sent them top of the table.

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.
