Alvaro Morata On Bench - Chelsea Team vs Burnley Confirmed

13 Agosto 2017, 04:38 | Gervasio Siguenza

As far as Burnley are concerned, Sean Dyche has no injury concerns and will travel with a full squad as they get ready to pay Stamford Bridge a visit for their first match of the season.

He has so many qualities that make him a better fit for Chelsea than Lukaku.

With the likes of second choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Antony Rudiger and defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko would have boosted the Chelsea squad to a large extent.

However, the failure to secure reported transfer targets such as Romelu Lukaku and Leonardo Bonucci, Diego Costa's pariah status and the departure of Nemanja Matic to the benefit of Manchester United all appear to have irked the former Juventus boss.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata feels he is being unfairly criticised for his Community Shield penalty miss, although he accepts that his price tag invites extra scrutiny.

The stage is set for Chelsea's title defence as they play host to the Clarets of Burnley in match-week one.

Conte has struggled to hide his frustrations over Chelsea's failure to strengthen their squad, with Morata, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero their only new signings.

Burnley FC's Ben Mee (C) looking forward to leave Stamford Bridge with surprise win over Chelsea. But the line "no one believed we could win" is just as telling.

Burnley have a poor record in London, only winning once out of all their previous 16 attempts, that was against Crystal Palace in April however.

We've seen it with Nathan Ake, who scored a late victor against Liverpool last season to help Bournemouth to a 4-3 victory. I have been impressed with him.

Yet again we are seeing a transfer window whereby Chelsea are spending big whilst they loan out their young talent to teams across Europe. Me, I have to start to study a new formation with ten or nine players. So at the other end is where they will have to somehow try to stop the Blues.

"Burnley are a really good team". A performance like this, maybe somewhat hard to come by with the amount of action he will surely face.

Going into Saturday's home match against Burnley, it could even be argued that Chelsea is beginning the season in a weaker position despite a summer outlay of around 140 million pounds ($180 million). We have all seen how much of a difference the Benglian makes for Chelsea, with his trickery and pace, both up front, and on the wings.
