Nine-man Chelsea shocked by Burnley on opening day

Nine-man Chelsea shocked by Burnley on opening day

Chelsea crumbled and, by the half-time break, were behind by three goals, with Burnley's Sam Vokes contributing two and Stephen Ward lashing in another.

Burnley keeper Tom Heaten produced two fine second-half saves from Marcos Alonso to preserve his side's advantage.

Substitute Alvaro Morata and David Luiz pulled goals back to leave Burnley hanging on.

But Burnley held on to claim a first win at Stamford Bridge since 1971, and leave Conte lamenting the early dismissal of Cahill for putting his side on the backfoot.

Things started to go wrong for the hosts after just 14 minutes, when Gary Cahill saw red for a lunge on Steven Defour.

Meanwhile, the dollar USDJPY, -0.31% fetched ¥109.69, compared with ¥110.31 late Tuesday. 10-Year Treasury Yield 2.19% -0.008%. The commodity touched over $1,284.40 an ounce on Wednesday, which marked the highest intraday price in nearly two months.

Conte said: "Morata is very important and it's important that he now adapts himself to our philosophy - today he played a good game with the right intensity". But in the last three games we end the game with 10 men or less. I thought the referee was very good - he had a tough game to handle. It can happen, this type of situation, but we must pay attention and think there is the rest of the game to try to do our best.

"Instead we conceded three goals and the second half was very hard to change the result, despite the great commitment, the great desire, the great will of my players". It is not a secret that Antonio Conte wants his club to sign a few more players before the end of the transfer window as Chelsea have so far signed Caballero, Rudiger, Bakayoko and Morata.

"I am a coach and now the season has started so my focus is just be on the pitch and working with my players".

Injuries to key players, frustration in the transfer market, and now a surprise 3-2 home loss on the opening weekend of the season to Burnley, a team that were expected to be among the candidates for relegation. I'm really pleased with my players.

Chelsea down to 9 men.

Bannon is the former chairman of Breitbart News. "You want to go into the political arena, let's do it", Nunberg said. The White House did not immediately respond to CNNMoney's request for comment about Scaramucci's remarks.

There is now already the possibility that they could go into the worldwide break with an very bad lot of work to do once they get back.

It was not until April that northwest side Burnley enjoyed an away win in the Premier League last season and the significance of Saturday's victory in London was not lost on Vokes.

"Also I have to study a new formation with 10 men, because when it happens with this regularity I must be anxious".

Burnley only won one home match all season previous year, and have already matched that record after just one game of the 2017/18 campaign.
