Huddersfield's Kirklees Stadium is now a destination in soccer's richest league, and its occupant has opened its first-ever Premier League campaign with two wins out of two.

"We played a very good game", said Alonso.

"It is something that is spoken about a lot but I am not too bothered by it", he said.

"I want to thank my players because their commitment, their desire and heart they put on the pitch was incredible in what has been a very hard moment for us", Conte told Sky Sports.

"It's not fair to blame Wembley".

However, Antonio Conte was forced to bring forward Bakayoko's return due to his lack of midfield options and the French global played in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Cobham last week in order to build his match fitness. To feel the atmosphere is incredible and it is great also for the opponents.

Kane feels that is also why the defeat is not too deflating, despite Marcos Alonso denying Spurs a point with a goal three minutes from the end, spoiling their first league match at Wembley. "They put in a good performance against a really good Tottenham team".

We take a look at all the important stats to find out which left-back is the better player...

The Oregonian/Oregonlive reports that the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are exploring. The pilot of a small passenger plane that crashed near Madras on Saturday was the only fatality, investigators said Sunday.

However, on the attacking front Alonso easily has the lead - particularly in goals scored.

No one was more focused than Marcos Alonso, whose two goals earned the Blues their first points of the season.

"The opportunities that we created we didn't score".

Chelsea head coach Conte afterwards lauded his "fighters".

"This was the flawless response of champions", said Conte, who was overseeing his 50th match in charge of the Blues. "Playing that way we can win lots of games". I think he is about the fifth-best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

"I must be pleased", he told the media. "I saw today the fighters". We'll see what happens in the future but in my opinion it would be good to end it when the season starts.

Thursday will see the draw for the group stages of the Champions League, a competition Chelsea missed out on last season and Blues supporters have every reason to be optimistic about their team's chances if they can continue to replicate the battling display that won the day at Wembley. "I'm not speaking about football, but this spirit, this heart, this desire". We had eight or nine and we only scored one. Read on to discover which Tottenham players should be looking over their shoulder in training this week.
