Antonio Conte talks Chelsea's transfer plans following Burnley defeat: I'm not anxious

But in the last three games we end the game with 10 men or less.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits that his side "lost their heads" as they suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley.

The Dubliner played a nice one-two with Jack Cork before shrugging off the attention of the current PFA Player of the Year, N'Golo Kante, before rifling the ball into the far corner past Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea were 3-0 down at half-time after a disastrous start to the Premier League season, with captain Gary Cahill sent off inside 15 minutes. I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate this situation of playing with nine or 10 men in the next game.

"I have to start to study a new formation with 10 players because when it happens with regularity you must be anxious".

Asked what he thought of referee Craig Pawson's performance that incensed much of Stamford Bridge, Conte took a long pause and then replied: "I prefer not to comment on the referee's decisions".

"We must focus on working very hard with these players", said Conte.

Mounie's goals were the first repayments on his club-record £11.4 million transfer and sent David Wagner's men to the top of the fledgling standings. "We would have had defensive areas we need to work on even if we'd won 3-2, but we were the better team". You are not satisfied with my starting XI?

"I don't like this appetite for someone to send a message". Why do I have to send a message? Why? I want to win today.

Huddersfield Town marked their top flight return with a remarkable 3-0 win at Crystal Palace that sent them top of the table, while Wayne Rooney bagged the victor on his Everton comeback in a 1-0 victory over Stoke City.

"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".
