Burnley Stun Nine-Man Chelsea At The Bridge

Antonio Conte speaks at Chelsea press conference

The Blues crumbled when captain Gary Cahill was sent off early in the first half, and his side were a shocking three goals down by the half-time whistle.

But Burnley managed to hold the champions off - and claimed a superb win at Stamford Bridge.

Youth-team graduate Jeremie Boga made his debut, but was hauled off in the reshuffle that followed Cahill's 14th-minute dismissal for a studs-up foul on Steven Defour.

Chelsea dominated en route to winning the Premier League last season.

"Did we expect this situation?"

"I don't want to comment on the referee, absolutely not".

Ward delivered a stunning shot from a tight angle for the second, but having been played in by a one-two he was allowed into a scoring position far too easily with N'golo Kante enabling him to escape.

Chelsea brought in Alvaro Morata in the second half and it paid off as the Spaniad got his first goal for the club to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute of the game. "I haven't seen it but my staff tell me it's the correct decision", Dyche said.

Who will be the first managerial casualty of the new season?

"In our pre-season, in every pre-season, I played our best formation and I did the same against Burnley". I don't like this type of idea, someone sending a message.

Of course, it's not just Premier League football that we'll be watching over today.

Burnley then capitalized with a ruthless display that saw them score 3 times before the break.

"It's a big win for us because they're a fine side".

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp protested that Watford's stoppage-time equaliser by Manuel Britos in an entertaining 3-3 draw should have been disallowed for offside. This time it was Defour who curled the ball into the area.

Huddersfield was English champion three years in a row from 1924.

Yet with with the likes of John Terry, Nemanja Matic and potentially Diego Costa all leaving the club this summer, on top of fringe players such as Nathan Ake, Asmir Begovic and Nathaniel Chalobah, Blues boss Conte is short of strength in depth, which has become increasingly noticeable over the past week.

Late goals from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud earned Arsenal a 4-3 win over Leicester in Friday's frantic opening game.

Wayne Rooney crowned his first appearance for formative club Everton since 2004 by notching the victor in a 1-0 win over Stoke City, heading in Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross for his 199th Premier League goal.
