Jamie Carragher has warned Chelsea that they will be under huge amounts of pressure heading into their trip to Tottenham next weekend.

The west London side endured an afternoon to forget on Saturday when they were beaten 3-2 by Burnley at Stamford Bridge and reduced to nine men.

It was a disastrous start to their title defence for the Blues, who will be without the suspended Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas for Sunday’s trip to Wembley.

Tottenham, meanwhile, began their Premier League campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday.

And Liverpool legend Carragher has warned the Blues that they will be under intense pressure heading into their clash with Spurs at Wembley.

“They’ll be a lot of pressure on Chelsea going into the game,” said Carragher, speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.

“Chelsea have got to go there with a mindset of ‘don’t get beat – don’t lose two on the bounce’.”

Chelsea are still believed to be on the hunt for a number of new signings this summer as Antonio Conte prepares his squad for a return to the Champions League next month.

The Blues have signed Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata so far this summer, but they continue to be linked with a host of other top players before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
