HE'S NOT KNOWN for his scoring prowess but Republic of Ireland global Stephen Ward conjured an absolute stunner for Burnley as they inexplicably put three past Chelsea on a worrying open day for the reigning champions.
Conte said his halftime team talk, which along with the introduction of new striker Alvaro Morata who scored on his debut, appeared to completely transform the game, involved pointing out how the players had panicked and lost their shape.
Burnley's win, their first at Chelsea since 1971, further blackened the mood around Stamford Bridge after a close season during which manager Antonio Conte has grown frustrated by his side's lack of transfer activity.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche was delighted after his team ditched their label as poor travellers to pull off a shock 3-2 win at champions Chelsea, who finished with nine men, on Saturday.
"One positive in the second half, one negative in the first half".
He did his case no harm on Saturday, turning in an excellent display as he thwarted Chelsea attacks time after time.
"This situation can happen and we must pay more attention next time". We tried our best but at the end of the day football is about results and we lost.
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.
"It's a great possibility for Michy", said Conte. Will they bring in a couple of players, we need to hear some good things coming out? He has played every (pre-season) game from the start and it's very important for him to play well. It's very hard for this club to make massive strides, so it's about just shifting it forward.
However, on the evidence presented from the opening game, not to mention Morata's £70 million (Dh332.4m) price tag, the Spaniard is sure to be viewed as Conte's undisputed No 1 striker this season.
That set up a Burnley-bonus day - and how they made the most of it against nine-man Chelsea with a ruthless and professional performance. Sam Vokes is tasked with leading the line, with the likes of Robbie Brady, Jack Cork (on his second debut) and Jeff Hendrick hoping to get forward in support.
