Burnley tried to disrupt our football, says Chelsea boss Conte.

Chelsea are in a good position but three points would have been good, says Antonio Conte.

The west London club missed the opportunity to go 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League table after playing out a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

The Blues weren't able to seal a win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon as they took an early lead through Pedro.

However, the Clarets responded via Robbie Brady who scored with a beautiful free-kick 17 minutes after the opener.

“We are in a good position because we are at the top of the table,” Conte told talkSPORT.

“If you ask me: 'are you happy in this moment to be top of the table by eight or 10 points [at the start of the season]' – I would tell you, you are crazy!”

Conte continued: “I am not happy, we wanted three points. We try in every game to win but sometimes you find a really strong team [and] a really tough game.

“Today, the game was very tough for many reasons. But it’s a pity because we started very well; we created chances to score more goals – then it’s a good free-kick from them.

“In the second half we tried to score and to win the game. But it’s not easy to play here in Burnley. They took 29 points at home and it means they are a strong team at home.

“We tried to build from the back and play our football. But on the other side, Burnley tried to disrupt our football and to find these long balls, second balls, and they created chances.”
