GETTY Nemanja Matic insists Premier League glory is Man Utd’s main target this season

Nemanja Matic Premier League Manchester United

Gary Lineker was critical of Chelsea for a poor start to the Premier League title defence after a 3-2 loss to Burnley on Saturday.

To win away on day one is something special given the context of last season. But they won just once on the road last season, and will be outmatched by both the talent of Chelsea and the atmosphere of Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea kick off their 2017/18 Premier League campaign tomorrow afternoon with a home fixture against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Conte kept his counsel on Chelsea's transfer business, with the summer window open until August 31.

There is still the lingering issue of just where Costa will be going.

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. Conte added: "We are facing different problems".

Looking ahead to this season with his new club, he is very much expected to be the main man up top, especially in the Premier League and the Champions League.

It was really an bad day for Chelsea who ended the game with nine players.

Victor Moses is another player the Blues will be without for this following the red card the Nigerian received in last season's FA Cup final.

The Blues' quality far surpasses the likes of Dyche's men, who recently saw striker Andre Gray, seek the slightly greener pastures of Watford.

Last season the attacker bagged four goals in 15 appearances for Huddersfield before agreeing on a new loan deal with Chris Houghton's Brighton. Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady can play on either flank, Walters will challenge Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes for the lone roll up front.

Loftus-Cheek has made the move across London to join Frank de Boer's Crystal Palace. It's a fair comment to say that out loud because we're all talking about how the second season is more hard than the first. I have been impressed with him. They have be stronger and the squad needs freshening up, which has started to happen and I think will continue to happen. I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate this situation of playing with nine or 10 men in the next game.
