CHELSEA 2-3 BURNLEY: CESC FABREGAS AND GARY CAHILL SEE RED AS SAM VOKES DOUBLE AND STEPHEN WARD GOAL
Chelsea went down to 10 men early on but they can't lay the blame solely at the referee, they were total chaos and awful as they start the season
The Blues suffered a nightmare start to their Premier League title defence, having two men sent off as Burnley claimed a deserved win at Stamford Bridge.
This should send a strong message to the Chelsea's board that they need to spend money and sign new players
Leicester City- the only other set of champions that had ever lost their opening game the season after lifting the title and Chelsea's boss Antonio Conte will point to a lack of options and signings in the transfer window as an excuse for the shock defeat.
Burnley had a disciplined, energetic and ruthless first-half display that saw them score three times, with Sam Vokes netting twice - a header and a volley - either side of a lashing angled drive from Stephen Ward.
The Blues were better after the break and pulled a goal back when summer signing Alvaro Morata headed in shortly after coming off the bench.
