Chelsea vs. Burnley
Minute Commentary
Chelsea went down 2-3 at home to Burnley after a frantic first half sealed a famous win for Sean Dyche's men. The Blues were down to ten men early on when Chelsea skipper Cahill flew into Steven Defour with a reckless tackle and saw red for his troubles. The visitors were then ahead when Matthew Lowton found Sam Vokes and the Burnley striker nodded his side in front. It then got even better for the Clarets when Stephen Ward took the ball down in the box before lashing a shot into the corner of the net to make it 2-0. Incredibly, it was then 3-0 when Voakes was again allowed space in the box to send a header passed Thibaut Courtois. Marcos Alonso twice came close for Chelsea in the second half but Tom Heaton was on hand to turn the ball over the crossbar. The home side then did grab one back on 68 minutes when debutante Alvaro Morata headed home from close range. However, Chelsea were dealt another blow on 83 minutes when Cesc Fabregas was given his second yellow card of the game for a dangerous challenge on Jack Cork. David Luiz did grab another goal back for Antonio Conte's side just before full time but it wasn't enough for the reigning champions.
It's full time at Stamford Bridge. 2-3.
Robbie Brady nearly makes it 4-2 but his close-range free-kick comes back off the post.

It's half time at Stamford Bridge.
Wow. Burnley are 3-0 ahead! Steven Defour is allowed the space to send a cross onto the head of Sam Vokes who loses his man and nods the ball home. Incredible scenes at Stamford Bridge.

Robbie Brady floats a decent ball into the box but Ben Mee struggles to make the most of it and Chelsea are able to clear the ball.
The match is underway at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea haven't lost to Burnley in their last six meetings, winning four and drawing two, but the Clarets did beat the Blues in the League Cup on penalties at Stamford Bridge back in 2008. The home side also have an impressive record on the opening day of the season in the Premier League; winning 16 out of their 25 games, while Burnley have lost all three of the opening day fixtures in the top division.
Sean Dyche has made a number of signings for Burnley and will be hoping the likes of Jonathan Walters and Jack Cork can make a real impact. It was a blow for the Clarets to lose leading marksman Andre Gray to Watford but the £18m transfer fee may allow Dyche to bring in a couple more faces before the transfer window closes.
Chelsea have come into this season on the back of losing two of their most important players from last season. Nemanja Matic moved to Manchester United while Diego Costa looks almost certain to have played his last game for the club after falling out with the Blues manager. However, they have made signings in the shape of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata and will be hoping they can start where they left off last season.
Chelsea face Burnley at Stamford Bridge on the opening day of the new Premier League season. The Champions will fancy themselves for three points this afternoon but will know that the Clarets will make it as hard as possible for Antonio Conte's side.
