Jeremie Boga's Chelsea debut cut short after Gary Cahill saw early red

Jeremie Boga's Chelsea debut cut short after Gary Cahill saw early red

Sam Vokes capitalised on the numerical advantage and Chelsea's poor defending, scoring either side of a goal from team mate Stephen Ward, to send Burnley into the halftime break 3-0 up.

Burnley took the lead minutes later through Sam Vokes after a cross from the right from Matt Lowton.

Alvaro Morata, on as a second-half substitute, nodded in Willian's cross in the 69th minute.

Chelsea appeared to be gathering some momentum, until Fabregas lunged into a challenge and picked up a second yellow card, leaving the hosts with nine men for the final ten minutes.

Burnley picked up just one away win in the Premier League last season and the visitors had to endure a nervy finish when David Luiz fired home after latching on to Morata's flick, but the Clarets held on to record a famous victory. With Eden Hazard, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Pedro Rodriguez injured and Victor Moses suspended, Chelsea had a threadbare match-day 18.

The result is also the first time Chelsea has lost an opening league game of the season since 1998.

Kyrie Irving prefers to play for Clippers
He's still under contract to the team for two more guaranteed years with a player option for the 2019-20 season. It's one thing to say people go through ups and downs during the regular season.

Spanish worldwide Alvaro Morata came from the bench to score the first goal for the Blues in the 69th minutes before David Luiz netted at the death as the match ended 3-2 in favor of Burnley.

Aaron Mooy, who Huddersfield tied down to a permanent transfer following his terrific loan spell with the Terriers, was involved in both of his side's first-half goals.

There had been a change of guard over the summer with John Terry's departure with Cahill taking the armband, but his league debut as permanent captain lasted all of 14 minutes.

New-look Everton had marginally the better of a disjointed opening spell with Sandro, another of their new signings, seeing an effort trundle just wide of the Stoke goal.

"We did everything to win the game but we couldn't", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrini, who replaced Claude Puel in the offseason.
