Burnley hoping to catch uncertain Chelsea off-guard at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea had Captain Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas sent off and Burnley took full advantage through Vokes's brace and a superb Stephen Ward's effort.

Conte, looking exhausted and disgruntled, said he preferred not to talk about the referee who also sent off Cesc Fabregas in the 82nd minute after the Spaniard earned a second yellow card for an ill-timed tackle on former Chelsea man Jack Cork.

Youth-team graduate Jeremie Boga made his debut, but was hauled off in the reshuffle that followed Cahill's 14th-minute dismissal for a reckless, studs-up foul on Steven Defour.

"I thought the referee was fantastic, to handle the occasion, the stadium, the decisions, my staff tell me he's got them right".

Chelsea begin their title defence against Burnley on Saturday and Conte is concerned that his squad is not strong enough and wants more arrivals before the transfer window closes.
