After defeat at home to Burnley on Saturday, the press and media would have you believe that Chelsea are in crisis. I felt compelled to call for perspective from other Chelsea fans so as not to jump on the negative bandwagon that has snowballed in the last few days. 

If you want to believe what is being written and spoken about on TV since the final whistle blew on Saturday then you would have to believe that Antonio Conte is about to walk out on Chelsea, the players have turned against him with the whole Diego Costa situation with some speaking openly against the manager (which if you actually read the comments, no-one has mentioned anything like that at all) and Chelsea are so far behind their title rivals already, that their season is about to implode with our challenge being virtually over already!

What a load of bollocks for fuck sake! It really is ridiculous if you think about it. All this crap being written, debated and spoken about after one game. The one game we found ourselves with two players sent off, down to nine men in addition to having FOUR of our first team starters already out of the side through injury or suspension. However, despite all this, we still never gave up, took the fight to Burnley and dominated the game creating chances right to the very last minute!

People say football fans are fickle but in my view the immediate aftermath of the game, as the Chelsea players applauded the fans points to the fact that they are honest and acknowledge when outside influences affect the game. The noise created by the fans all around the ground chanting "Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea" tells you everything you needed to know about that game in that moment and not the crap we have had to put up with reading for the past few days.

Despite our woeful defending for Burnley's first and third goals (nothing you can do about the second as it was an excellent strike) there were plenty of positives for me to take from the game. The first being the spirit within the team to keep on going despite being down to ten men first of all and then down to nine men. That never say die attitude will serve us well this season. Alvaro Morata came on and produced a glimpse of just what he can and will do for Chelsea in the time he spends here. As Michy Batshuayi struggled to hold the ball up so we could build on possession, Morata gave a masterclass of what he should be doing. His goal was taken well and his assist for David Luiz was also excellent.

Andreas Christensen got vital match experience at Stamford Bridge under his belt which is also important to note. Although it was not under the best circumstances, he would have learned a high amount of what to be prepared for in the Premier League. Apart from a mistake with his positioning for one of the Burnley goals (the last one if you watch it back) he did well enough and looked more than comfortable on the ball.

If you take that gutsy fightback from the team, add the likes of Victor Moses, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Pedro and Eden Hazard into the lineup so as to restore our back three of last season, for Moses to get up and down that right hand side, for Bakayoko to build a partnership with N'Golo Kante and for Eden Hazard to dominate defenders while creating chances while scoring goals, Chelsea are not far off of being up there with the strongest sides in the Premier League.

There is no need to panic. There is no need to read all the bullshit being written, ignore the TV pundits and just focus on what is coming out of the club to have a realistic perspective.

We have only played one game. Finally, some perspective from Henry Winter:
