Antonio Conte & Jurgen Klopp: Updates on quit threats

Share

Conte was proud of the second-half effort, but acknowledged Chelsea lost their heads after Cahill saw red, a period in which Fabregas got his first booking for sarcastically applauding referee Craig Pawson, who came under pressure from the home players and supporters.

Burnley then capitalized with a ruthless display that saw them score 3 times before the break. We have still got a team that needs to keep moving forwards.

After the opening game of the season on Friday produced seven goals and a late victor for Arsenal, who beat Leicester City 4-3, the two teams at Vicarage Road served up more of the same entertainment for a worldwide television audience - including some poor defending. Last year, then-champion Leicester lost at Hull 2-1 in its first match and its fortunes improved only after manager Claudio Ranieri was sacked.

Conte was without the injured Eden Hazard and out-of-favour striker Diego Costa, while £58 million ($75.5 million, 63.8 million euros) signing Morata started on the bench.

The absence of unsettled playmaker Philippe Coutinho didn't stop the goals flowing for Liverpool in its opening match.

"Instead we conceded three goals and in the second half it was very hard to change the final result despite the great commitment, will and desire of my players".

Two of Watford goals came from corners and the other from an attacking throw-in.

"After that we lost our composure and conceded three goals", Conte said.

The home side, under new manager Marco Silva, led twice through Stefano Okaka and Abdoulaye Doucoure but Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, with a penalty, both equalised.

Few take notice of the standings in the first week.

Antonio Conte might not be happy with the lack of discipline shown by his senior players, but the spirit and fight shown by his side should be a positive sign, although Chelsea must avoid these self-inflicted wounds in the future.

Huddersfield was English champion three years in a row from 1924.

Almost 5,000 days later, Wayne Rooney is back scoring in the blue of Everton.

He left Everton in 2004 as a precocious teenager.

Debutant Ahmed Hegazi's first-half header earned West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, while Mauricio Pellegrino's tenure as Southampton manager began with a 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City. That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley.
