Burnley Stun Nine-Man Chelsea At The Bridge

13 Agosto 2017

After Chelsea's new captain Gary Cahill was shown a straight red card in the 14th minute at Stamford Bridge, a Sam Vokes brace and a Stephen Ward rocket saw Burnley go 3-0 up before half-time.

Mourinho had been unhappy with Petr Cech's transfer to Arsenal that summer and wanted to strengthen in a number of positions.

Since signing from Brentford James Tarkowski has had to be patient for his chance while Keane and Ben Mee continued to impress.

"It was a fantastic three points and the referee, I just want to say, was fantastic today".

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. "We tried our best but at the end of the day football is about results and we lost".

There have been times when Burnley have been too honest.

Despite that start, Chelsea were actually commanding the match with possession early on and waiting for an opening in a very well organised Burnley side. I'm Oliver Emmerson, and I'll be taking you through the afternoon's action in the Premier League and elsewhere, after Watford's fixture against Liverpool, following the scores through the afternoon until Brighton and Hove Albion host Manchester City later on. We have to improve a lot on this aspect, because a situation of this type can happen.

"We conceded three goals too easily".

"In our pre-season, in every pre-season, I played our best formation and I did the same against Burnley".

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. This time it was Defour who curled the ball into the area.

Chelsea fought back through Alvaro Morata and David Luiz, but Cesc Fabregas' dismissal for two bookable offences disrupted their momentum in a second-half they dominated.

But Rudiger say the derby provides Chelsea will an ideal opportunity to erase the bitter taste of the Burnley loss.

Debutant Ahmed Hegazi's first-half header earned West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, while Mauricio Pellegrino's tenure as Southampton manager began with a 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City.

Sean Dyche is a fervent anti-diving campaigner, but the Clarets chief has always drawn a line between blatant cheating and gamesmanship, an art his side haven't mastered so far in their time in the top flight.
