Dyche: Burnley Proved Doubters Wrong With Victory Over Chelsea

The Blues got the defence of their Premier League title off to a nightmare start after losing to the Clarets at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Burnley were 3-0 up before half-time, Vokes scoring either side of Stephen Ward's goal, and although Chelsea threatened to claim a share of the spoils, the visitors held on to all three points.

To do that they'll need to vastly improve their away record as while they were outstanding at Turf Moor, the Clarets had to wait until April 29th to win their first game on the road past year so Dyche will be desperate to come away with a positive result tomorrow.

Huddersfield Town marked their top flight return with a remarkable 3-0 win at Crystal Palace that sent them top of the table, while Wayne Rooney bagged the victor on his Everton comeback in a 1-0 victory over Stoke City.

Striker Diego Costa remains in exile, while playmaker Eden Hazard (broken ankle) and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko (knee) remain out.

Chelsea were up against it from the 14th minute after captain Gary Cahill saw red for a studs-up tackle.

Sam Vokes' effort snuck past Thibaut Courtois, before Ward doubled their advantage with a fierce strike inside the area.

Conte, looking exhausted and disgruntled, said he preferred not to talk about the referee who also sent off Cesc Fabregas in the 82nd minute after the Spaniard earned a second yellow card for an ill-timed tackle on former Chelsea man Jack Cork.

Their doggedness against the Premier League's most gifted opposition suggested they are unlikely to be a soft touch for anyone. I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League.

Burnley then capitalized with a ruthless display that saw them score 3 times before the break.

In the third minute of injury time, a shot from Richarlison was pushed against the bar by Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and Britos, who appeared to be offside, nodded the ball over the line. This was a chaotic and thrilling game for all but those hoping for a Chelsea win, as the Champions put in an inconsistent performance. "We should have won".

"They're a top-class side, with some fantastic individuals, 3-0 down is not normal for them so they had to respond, which they did", said Dyche.

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