This may well be the most competitive Premier League title race in years, and Conte knows that he will have to put in a solid performance as a manager - and hope his players do the same in order to retain the title and not see another manager dismissed. If the club decide to send the players on loan for their development it is because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea.
Despite spending close to £150m this season there are still considerable gaps in Chelsea's squad at present, but Conte is sure the club's board are doing everything they can to try and strengthen his squad, with his focus solely on his side's clash with the Clarets.
Sean Dyches's men, lead by Tom Heaton who was just brilliant between the sticks, were especially successful at their Turf Moor where they've won 33 out of 40 points last year so it's obvious that their away record is simply poor - seven points in 19 games so reigning champions should pick up three points at the beginning of the campaign.
"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play with calmness and continue my path", the 24-year-old said. What happens in the transfer market, the club is trying to do their best.
Wider squad strength is the greater concern with the depth required in key areas such as wing-back and central midfield yet to be addressed. "I am pleased because we are working well with this team and this group of players".
"I don't know if this season could be more difficult than last season", Conte told reporters on Friday.
A Chelsea spokesman intervened, saying: "Nothing to report on that".

Antonio Conte looks raring to go as he plans to mastermind Chelsea's Premier League title defence ahead of their season opener against Burnley on Saturday. I think this must be my focus in this period.
As a result Chelsea will name several youth and fringe players on the bench for Saturday's match.
Amid the Italian's reported frustration with Chelsea's performance in the transfer market, Wenger claimed he appreciates his counterpart's situation at Stamford Bridge, but does not feel sorry for him. I think we are better than last season.
"Pedro is not available, he is suffering from an injury and has not been able to recover", Conte said.
"But he needs time to understand, to adapt to our style of football, above all for a striker".
"It's the start of the Premier League and it's very important for us".
