Stamford Chidge and Kerry Dixon look back at Chelsea’s opening defeat to Burnley, discuss the Costa issue and look forward to the match against old enemy Spurs next Sunday.

Kerry reflects on the shock of losing to Burnley last Saturday but draw positives from Morata’s debut and look forward to a fruitful relationship between the striker and Hazard going forward.

Does Kerry have any sympathy with Costa effectively going on strike to get a move to Atletico Madrid. The situation is a mess and clearly needs to be resolved for the good of Chelsea as soon as possible.

Looking ahead to Spurs this Sunday, do Chidge and Kerry think that playing home games at will be a problem for Spurs? Will the key to the match be in who wins the midfield battle? And will Chelsea bounce back with a win or will it be a cagey ‘must not lose’ draw?
