Coach Antonio Conte said he prepared for Chelsea ready to play with only 9 or 10 people on the pitch.
In the Premier League 2017/18 match, Chelsea have the advantage of being welcomed to Burnley at home to Stamford Bridge. However, the advantage was quickly suppressed by the captain Gary Cahill’s red card in the 14th minute.
The England midfielder was chased after a kick in the shoe in front of referee Craig Pawson. Losing, Chelsea lost three consecutive goals in the first half and only survived hope in the second half thanks to goals Morata.
However, the referee made the Blues more difficult situation when deciding to draw the second yellow card to dismiss Cesc Fabregas in the 81st minute. With 9 players on the field, the defending team only took one more table and accept defeat 2- 3 in front of Burnley.
Despite this, coach Conte refused to criticize the referee. He even shocked at all when declaring himself prepared for Chelsea’s lack of people.
The Italian coach said: “In the last three official matches we have to play with 9 or 10 players. I have to try to adjust the new system and predict the situation we have only 9 or 10 people in the next battle.
“I do not want to comment on the referee, absolutely do not want to. We tried until the last minute to get good results against Burnley. Unfortunately it did not happen whether we played very well or in the second half. “
“The first half we were completely lost after the red card of Gary. Missing and conceding 3 goals is too difficult to change the final result. “
