Sam Vokes hails Burnley's 'massive win' against defending champions Chelsea — Premier League

Sam Vokes hails Burnley's 'massive win' against defending champions Chelsea — Premier League

Antonio Conte's side were better in the second half when summer signing Alvaro Morata headed in shortly after coming off the bench.

Meanwhile, Sean Dyche was generous in victory, with the Burnley manager swatting aside the suggestion his players might have sensed some vulnerability in the champions at the start of the match.

He added: "I have always worked with great pressure". So I'll start with the last, who will not be able to help the team on Saturday's match, among them: Azar, Moses and Bakayoko.

Gary Cahill was sent off in the 14th minute by referee Craig Pawson for a high lunge at Steven Defour and Burnley responded by powering into a 3-0 lead with two goals from Sam Vokes and a Stephen Ward strike. "We'll find the right solution".

Chelsea were poor until it looked like the cause was lost, according to our Daniel Storey. "Now we have to look forward", Christensen told reporters. In fact, they opened up the pitch more with 10 on the pitch.

"In the next game I don't know if Pedro is able to recover from his injury, but for sure we'll have two players out for a ban, Cahill and Fabregas".

"Alvaro has a good space to improve himself".

"Morata comes on and the first thing he did was upset the back four - asking different questions, winning fouls".

"[Cahill's early sending off] was a key moment, because to play the rest of the game with 10 men, and then with nine men, is not easy".

This conclusion can be made, judging by the results of the team at the pre-season fees, as well as looking at the list of injured players. He didn't play a lot but I think he adapted himself to our style of football.

"We kept going, kept probing and it's 3-0 at the interval". Given the struggles, Burnley are an ideal opponent to open the schedule.

The club is concerned he could end up so out of shape they will struggle to sell him.
