Chelsea 2-3 Burnley — FT

Premier League round-up: Nine-man Chelsea stunned by Burnley, Rooney the hero for Everton

The Clarets made their numerical advantage count 10 minutes later as Vokes fired in his first of the afternoon from a Matt Lowton delivery.

That wouldn't be the end of the harsh vibes at the Bridge, and Stephen Ward scored a goal Burnley fans will never forget when he laced a gorgeous shot from an unlikely and tight angle to make it 2-0.

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

Burnley's win, the club's first at Chelsea since 1971, was one of the few surprising results in the opening day of the English Premier League (EPL).

There were three other youngsters on the Chelsea bench - as if to underline the thin-ness of the squad that Conte takes into the new season.

Tom Ince missed an early chance to give the Terriers the lead when he sent a bouncing effort from Tommy Smith's cross straight at keeper Wayne Hennessey.

Vokes, who scored two of those goals in the first half, admits his side were sloppy to allow Chelsea back into the game but feels after an atrocious away record previous year, it was a huge result for the team and the club.

Mauricio Pellegrino had to settle for a point in his first match as Southampton manager as his side wasted a series of chancs.

Chelsea still swept forward and Defender David Luiz found the net in the 87th minute as a shell-shocked Burnley hung on. Chelsea are also without Eden Hazard, Pedro and Tiemoue Bakayoko, who are all injured, and they sold Nemaja Matic this summer to Manchester United.

Kick-off is just under a half hour from now.

But they won just once on the road last season, and will be outmatched by both the talent of Chelsea and the atmosphere of Stamford Bridge.

Soon after, Vokes had a goal called offside. That it took until a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on April 29 to pick up their first away victory says an very bad lot.

Chelsea are the league's best team when it comes to opening the season.
