Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says hard work is the key as the team prepare for Sunday’s fixture against Tottenham after suffering a shock defeat to Burnley.
Conte saw his team finish with nine players after Gary Cahill’s harsh first-half red card before Cesc Fabregas was dismissed late on for two bookable offences.
That made it three competitive matches in a row that Chelsea have had their men sent off the pitch.
Cahill and Fabregas will both be suspended for the trip to Wembley, although Victor Moses will be available for selection again after serving his one-match ban for a red card in the FA Cup final.
Conte who admitted that Cahill and Fabregas’ absence was a blow noted that his focus was working with his squad to go into the next match with the right mind-set.
