Dyche delight as Burnley ditch away blues to upset champions

Premier League 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.

Last Sunday, Chelsea played their first official match of the new season in the domestic arena.

Antonio Conte stressed the need throughout the summer for Chelsea to hit the ground running this season but supporters were left with a sense of Deja vu after their first half against Burnley.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill was sent off midway through the first half for a reckless tackle on Steven Defour.

"I can't believe it", the former Arsenal striker said on Sky Sports.

I couldn't feel my arms. "Carter broke his back in numerous places, severely damaged his spine, and injured his left foot". Instead, Carter and fellow officer Carlos Herrera were forced to jump off the freeway to avoid being hit again.

Conte has struggled to hide his frustrations over Chelsea's failure to strengthen their squad, with Morata, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero their only new signings.

"I think that the coach, the players and referee can make mistakes".

Stephen Ward then doubled the lead for the visitors a quarter of an hour later with a fierce shot after a one-two with Jack Cork.

But instead of replacing a defensive player for Morata, Conte made it a straight-swap for striker Michy Batshuayi.

Mooy's Huddersfield travelled to London for their first top-flight clash in nearly five decades and came away with three points after a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

But we needed to do that because we were one of the oldest teams in Europe and we had to change that. Romelu Lukaku has been the most talked about transfer of the summer in England this summer.

As well as defender Terry and midfielder Matic, Chelsea have sold Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth, while last season's top scorer Diego Costa has been told he is free to leave.

From then on, the Clarets took complete control of the game and went three goals up.

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. A quick free-kick led to Defour swinging in a cross from the right and an unmarked Vokes planted a header past Courtois, with loud boos greeting the champion when the half-time whistle was blown.

NAN also reports that Wayne Rooney scored the winning goal on his top-flight return to Everton after 13 years.

Ahmed Hegazi scored in his debut for West Brom, on loan from Egypt's Al Ahly.
