The 20-year-old initially joined the club in 2014 when he played for the Under 18s, and has climbed to the senior squad to make his Premier League debut during Saturday's match.

Spanish worldwide Alvaro Morata came from the bench to score the first goal for the Blues in the 69th minutes before David Luiz netted at the death as the match ended 3-2 in favor of Burnley.

It was a dispiriting afternoon for Conte, who won the title in his first season at the club and wants more reinforcements.

Chelsea begin the new season with a surprise defeat. "After the red card we lost our heads, conceded two goals and then it's very hard to change the final result".

Heaton made an excellent stop from Alonso's curling free-kick, but Chelsea did get a goal back with 21 minutes remaining, Morata swooping in to beat the Burnley keeper with a diving header after Willian's delivery found him in space.

The visitors were the better side overall with a disciplined, energetic and ruthless first-half display that saw them put three past the Blues, with Sam Vokes netting twice.

Newcomers Huddersfield stunned Crystal Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park while Watford forced 18-time English champions Liverpool to 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road.

The Blues striker was named on the bench for Chelsea's opening game of their title defence as Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi started up front for the champions.

Sean Dyche's side finished six points and two places clear of the relegation zone in their first campaign back in the top tier but remain among the bookmakers' relegation favourites.

"We were unlucky in the end", Klopp said.

"The equaliser was offside". "We have to improve a lot on this aspect because a situation of this type can happen, but we must pay attention to try to think that there is the rest of the game to try and do our best".

Wayne Rooney crowned his first appearance for formative club Everton since 2004 by notching the victor in a 1-0 win over Stoke City, heading in Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross for his 199th Premier League goal.
