Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte's Excuses Are Wearing Thin With Blues Board
Nine-man Chelsea lose 3-2 to Burnley

Premier League champions Chelsea suffered an embarrassing home defeat on the first Saturday of the new season, having two men sent off as unfancied Burnley beat them 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte might not be happy with the lack of discipline shown by his senior players, but the spirit and fight shown by his side should be a positive sign, although Chelsea must avoid these self-inflicted wounds in the future.
His goal galvanised his team and the Stamford Bridge crowd, and 19 minutes later the former Real Madrid striker set up David Luiz with a glancing header for Chelsea's second.
He brushed aside questions about reported tension with Chelsea's board over signing new players and said he was not anxious because three key players - Eden Hazard, Pedro and Victor Moses - could return from injury and suspension for Chelsea's next game against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Chelsea had one more opportunity to complete a famous comeback following a scramble in Burnley's box in extra time but the Clarets stood firm and held on for an impressive 3-2 win.
Conte, who only two weeks ago admitted he feared the sack, would not publicly criticise his players or referee Craig Pawson, who sent off Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas.

Cornerback Gareon Conley, the first-round pick, and the second rounder, safety Obi Melifonwu, are nursing injuries. The Cardinals' third-string quarterback, former 49ers starter Blaine Gabbert , was 5 of 9 for 53 yards.
"I think we must have the right experience to face this type of situation, above all in the last three official games we have ended twice with ten men against Arsenal, and today with nine".
"I don't want to comment on the referee, absolutely not".
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had some £150 million of new recruits on display at Brighton, but it took the pre-season favourites until the 70th minute to take the lead.
"In our pre-season, in every pre-season, I played our best formation and I did the same against Burnley".
"It quietens down a few stories", Dyche said to Sky Sports. "I wanted to win here, not to send a message". "This win won't do us any harm at all but it won't make our season".
Yet with with the likes of John Terry, Nemanja Matic and potentially Diego Costa all leaving the club this summer, on top of fringe players such as Nathan Ake, Asmir Begovic and Nathaniel Chalobah, Blues boss Conte is short of strength in depth, which has become increasingly noticeable over the past week.
NAN also reports that Wayne Rooney scored the winning goal on his top-flight return to Everton after 13 years.
