But Conte has made no secret of his desire to recruit more players to strengthen his first team for a season that sees the addition of Champions League matches to their fixture list.

Burnley's form at home and away contrasted sharply last season. And their seven points on the road was the second-worst record in the league.

"It kills all the stories off immediately by getting a first win, a first away win and giving the fans a great afternoon out", added the Burnley boss, whose team are widely predicted to be in the relegation battle again this campaign. "I won't hige, but it's just day one and the journey to the title is long", he said.

Burnley was expected to struggle this season after losing arguably its best two players in the offseason, defender Michael Keane and striker Andre Gray.

"It's a great win for us, brilliant for our players, brilliant for our supporters but we know there's a big season right in front of us, the "second season" that everyone's telling us about".

"If we are able to stay in the game, then anything can happen in the second half, but instead we conceded three goals".

Within 19 minutes, Chelsea found themselves not only three goals down but also down to ten men following Gary Cahill's reckless challenge.

"I am not anxious because we have to trust in our work".

Dyche saw Sam Vokes score twice and left-back Stephen Ward connect with a stunning volley as his side won away in the top flight at the first time of asking - last season their only away league win came at Crystal Palace in April.

"It's rare for any game in the Premier League to be three goals up at halftime, but particularly so when you are down at Chelsea". (Chelsea) had to respond, which they did, so credit to them, but we were disappointed with the two goals.

With this loss only an initial set back, the lack of depth within the squad remains an issue with star man Eden Hazard still injured, Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas are now also set to face suspensions following their dismissals by referee Craig Pawson.
