Antonio Conte has admitted that Chelsea "lost composure" after the key moment of Gary Cahill's red card in their sensational opening-weekend 3-2 defeat to Burnley, but played down any idea of a crisis, as he insisted he trusts the players to get themselves out of this situation.

Newly-acquired Alvaro Morata got in between Burnley's centre backs to pull one back for Chelsea in the 60th minute. Such is the seriousness with which this type of incidents are treated by the FA and their officials, it would not have taken much more for him to be reaching to his back pocket.

Burnley have now beaten Chelsea twice in the last 40 years, the first victory coming on April 23, 1983, when both sides were in the second division.

"I am not worried because we have to trust in our work and today there were three injured players, Pedro, Hazard, Bakayoko, one player missed for a ban in Moses". Away Burnley for 19 games earned only 7 points, it was the second worst result in the league after Halla with his 6 points.

The Clarets made their numerical advantage count 10 minutes later as Vokes fired in his first of the afternoon from a Matt Lowton delivery. And then I repeat: "the club is trying to do their best on the transfer market".

Burnley then smashed the home side with three goals in 19 devastating, first-half minutes to send shock waves around the Premier League.

"We were sloppy at times but we ground the result out and we're delighted as a result", Vokes told reporters.

Watford captain Troy Deeney is expected to be fit for the game. Despite this we also saw the great spirit and great commitment of my players and we must be very proud of this.

Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino will smell blood at Wembley and sense a real opportunity to plunge the champions into further crisis and inflict another loss, just like they did last season.
