Burnley stun nine-man Chelsea — EPL

13 Agosto 2017

Premier League football champions Chelsea suffered an embarrassing home defeat on the first Saturday of the new season, having two men sent off as unfancied Burnley beat them 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

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.

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. "The sending-off made a difference and I thought we did really, really well to handle that and keep the ball and create chances", he said.

"I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate playing with nine or 10 men in the next game".

Vokes' second goal came just before the half as he found himself unmarked in the centre of the goal and flashed a header beyond the despairing Courtois.

"But our first half we kept losing our heads - after the red card we lost our heads a bit, conceded three goals and then it's very difficult to change the final result".

"Why do I have to send a message? Why?"

Conte was without the injured Eden Hazard and out-of-favour striker Diego Costa, while £58 million ($75.5 million, 63.8 million euros) signing Morata started on the bench. We have huge players with lots of talent. Vokes scores - A deep cross to the back post finds Vokes, unmarked, and he nods it into the back post.

Liverpool were denied a winning start as Miguel Britos claimed a contentious stoppage-time leveller to earn Watford a 3-3 draw at Vicarage Road. The composure of the Chelsea players disappeared for the remainder of a half that will not be quickly forgotten.

"The red card was a key moment".

Mounie's goals were the first repayments on his club-record £11.4 million transfer from Montpellier and sent the Yorkshire club to the top of the fledgling standings.

Nine-man Chelsea fought gallantly to reduce the tally and it paid off as David Luiz scored the second goal for Chelsea to make it 3-2. The Italian was doing it again with his line-up, favouring Michy Batshuayi in attack to the £65 million new boy Alvaro Morata.

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