Robbie Brady free kick stops Chelsea in their tracks

With Tottenham playing at Liverpool on Saturday, Mauricio Pochettino's men have an opportunity to trim Chelsea's lead to six points, but Conte believes his players would not be perturbed.

"There are 13 games before the end of the season and if someone think this league is finished, I can tell you now, no", he said.

"You have less pitch to cover and then there is a good atmosphere with the supporters and I think it's good".

Swansea were the only side outside the top six to have taken points off Antonio Conte's side.

There were still reasons to be cheerful over their display, but Burnley had a gameplan at home and they executed it very well; particularly after going behind early on to Pedro's opener.

Robbie Brady is the first player to score a direct free-kick vs Chelsea in the PL since Rickie Lambert in March 2013.

"I don't like to reply to the other coaches", he said. But Burnley are a formidable force at home, taking 29 of their 30 points there and that record might have been better still but for the agility of Thibaut Courtois.

Neither will this affect the production or delivery figures as the company has already added production days for the delay. It was initially reported that the company would begin production and assembly of its Model 3 electric vehicles in July.

Chelsea have had to dig deeper for victories when facing mid table teams away from home this season and Burnley should be no different.

"We limited them to two efforts on target and we made four or five good chances ourselves, two or three of them were golden chances".

They displayed that strong chin, however, as Dyche noted: "We've got a resilience and relentlessness to us, everyone knows about that, and I'm pleased that paid them back".

"I wasn't looking to measure progress on this game but you can see their assuredness and it's part of being a Premier League player". I always like to take three points. "We couldn't get it right in the first 20 minutes and we changed it and got better with more defensive strength as a unit and that continued for the rest of the game".

"We found a team that thought to disrupt our football, to play this long ball and to fight the second ball".

Chelsea have nearly a fortnight until their next Premier League challenge with only the FA Cup trip to Wolves in the meantime, so Costa has plenty of time to recharge before Swansea visit Stamford Bridge.

The Blues looked to step it up a notch after conceding and had decent chances to at least test Tom Heaton in goal, but both Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas failed to make the most of their positions after each sliced their respective shots wide of the mark.
