Burnley goal-hero Sam Vokes said his side had achieved a "huge win" after they launched their Premier League season with a remarkable 3-2 victory away to reigning champions Chelsea on Saturday.

Their pre-season has been a good one, although they have faced two lower league sides, an Irish team, two from the Championship and Celta Vigo of Spain, they remained unbeaten with four wins and two draws so they will come into the game with confidence at least.

I want to win today and I wanted to win, I wanted to win not send a message. Why? "For me the striker is a really important role and it's really important to understand what I want from the position".

The arrivial of substitute Alvaro Morata lifted Chelsea in the second half, and despite their numerical disadvantage, they hinted at a fightback. Burnley, on the other hand, appear to be doing just fine at the moment and we can see them causing plenty of problems to their more illustrious opponents at Stamford Bridge.

A Chelsea spokesperson then intervened, saying: "Nothing to report on that".

"Such discriminatory behaviour makes it impossible for Costa to return to Chelsea while Antonio Conte is coach".

These loan deals allow Chelsea's youngsters to gain experience in England's top flight, but also the Blues know they are providing lower calibre teams with young players who have the ability to cause damage to their Premier League rivals. "But I've already adapted and I'm excited to play". "It was a hard situation; I was leaving a team that's my home and who are winning everything at the moment".

Firstly, he has played with the biggest club in world football under manager Zidane and alongside arguably the best player in the world right now in Cristiano Ronaldo, which has helped him develop.

Amid the Italian's reported frustration with Chelsea's performance in the transfer market, Wenger claimed he appreciates his counterpart's situation at Stamford Bridge, but does not feel sorry for him.

He said: "It's simple".

He said, "I'm delighted to be joining BT Sport, ' said Lampard, who will be at Wembley on Sunday as Arsenal take on Chelsea. For sure we are talking about a young player and he needs to develop, but he is trying to put his best in every moment of the day". My only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players. "But you know very well that there are surprises".
