Chelsea fans blame one player for their 1-1 draw with Burnley

David Luiz and Eden Hazard may not be able to make this game, as Chelsea's manager, Antonio Conte, 47, admitted that his two players have been playing through the pain, per the Evening Standard.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits Burnley were always going to be a hard opponent at Turf Moor.

After Pedro gave Chelsea an early lead, Robbie Brady equalised with a superb free-kick on his home debut for Burnley.

The former Barcelona forward did well to compose himself and hold off a challenge from the Burnley defence to slot home past Tom Heaton. When you have 29 of your 30 points at home it means you are very tough at home.

"We started well and kept the situation under control".

"In the second half we tried to show our strength to win the game but it didn't happen".

"By the end, I think they had two shots on target after the goal".

It came in only the sixth minute from a classic counter-attack beginning with a throw-in deep in their own half.

For Brady, it was the ideal way to mark his full debut after his £13m move from Norwich City last month.

Mid-way through the first-half the Ireland worldwide stepped up to a set-piece about 25-yards out and smashed an unstoppable curling effort into the top corner of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' net.

In a quieter second half striker Gray also missed a good chance, shooting weakly at the goalkeeper.

The striker channelled whatever frustration he might have been feeling into a determined display against Hull on his return but he has since gone three Premier League games without scoring for the first time since April/May a year ago.

The Spaniard told Sky Sports: "I spoke to him at half-time and after the game the following day, I texted to see how he was".

Sean Dyche has received plenty of praise for the tactical strategy which stifled Chelsea, but it was hardly the most cunning of plans, even if it had not occurred to Arsene Wenger.

"No, only fun! [It was] a bit of relaxation after a very intense week, with FA Cup, then Liverpool and Arsenal - so to watch a game totally relaxed was very good for me, and to come back into a stadium I know very well was very good".

"We wanted to do what we do".

"It all has to glue a team together, and we have a lot of that, the glue that holds a team together, and I've been really pleased with that". "You're taking on a fine side, quite obviously, market leaders for a reason because they are such a good side".
