All of these Chelsea loanees have great potential and it will be interesting to see what role they play in influencing the Premier League title next season.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that his side "lost their heads" as they fell to a shock home defeat to Burnley this afternoon.

"I'm looking forward to an exciting new season both here and in Europe and can't wait to begin working with the team".

Chelsea go into this game with a number of key players unavailable.

In other results of matches also played on Saturday, Miguel Britos scored a controversial 93rd-minute equaliser for Watford as Liverpool were held 3-3 in a thrilling game at Vicarage Road. Despite this, news regarding his assumed exit to Atletico Madrid remains sparse. Their only absentee is the injured Dean Marney.

In his press conference ahead of tomorrow's game Antonio Conte was quick to praise his squad and the commitment they have shown in preparation for the new Premier League season. "We'll have a game-plan and I'm sure we'll have the same game-plan regardless of whoever plays up front". "I picked the best players that we have at this moment", Conte said. And then I repeat: "the club is trying to do their best on the transfer market". "It was a pity because our fight in the second half was very good", Conte said. He will set up with a 4-5-1 as Burnley will look to try and stop Chelsea playing, Matthew Lowton, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski and Stephen Ward will likely start in a disciplined back four, while Cork and one of either Steven Defour or Jeff Hendrick will shield them.

"It's very important to try to find the right solution, to try to improve the squad", Conte said this week at the Premier League launch.

Yet again we are seeing a transfer window whereby Chelsea are spending big whilst they loan out their young talent to teams across Europe.

As a result of the Spanish global moving out to the flanks, Antonio Rudiger comes into the back three to make his competitive debut alongside David Luiz and captain Gary Cahill.

Interestingly, injuries to wide attackers like Hazard and Pedro could afford Conte with the opportunity of changing tings to the formation with which he conquered Italy from Turin - the 3-5-2. Antonio Conte has captured the imagination of the Chelsea fans with his robustness and passionate celebrations from the technical area; a passionate manager is often essential to motivate the players, who are required to put in demanding shifts under the Conte system.
