Chelsea 2-3 Burnley, all goals and highlight

Chelsea had the worst possible start to their title defence after falling three goals down in the opening 45 minutes to Burnley.

Last year’s Premier League champion Chelsea took on Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Despite the intake of Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko, the wide width of the London team is still very small.

Burnley sold their best players last year, Andre Gray, to Watford.

Antonio Conte has previously assumed that he should not invest in defending Chelsea title this season.

Gary Cahill got sight of the red card  after 14 minutes.

Due to the expulsion, Antonio Conte replaced 20-year-old Jeremie Boga with Andreas Christensen.

Burnley also made immediate changes to the goal, but it was sentenced.

After 24 minutes, Sam Voke scored , making the score line 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley however, extended their lead to 2-0 before half-time, when Stephen Ward scored his own goal with a hard shot 39 minutes into the match.

The away team was not ready yet when Sam Vokes became the hero at Stamford Bridge after 43 minutes, after netting in another goal and it was 3-0.

The half-time score was 3-0 and the Conte side was shaking.

After 59 minutes, Chelsea’s new acquisition of Alvaro Morata was substituted for belgian Michy Batshuayi.

One minute later, Chelsea received a free kick shot by Marcos Alonso, but England’s Tom Heaton controlled the ball over the bar.

Chelsea was able to come back into the game when Alvaro Morata nicked his debut after 69 minutes and it was reduced to 1-3 at Stamford Bridge.

Just three minutes later, Chelsea caught another goal, but Alvaro Morata got a touch on Andreas Christensen’s shot as he was in the offside position, the goal was condemned.

The home team was punished with a second red card when Cesc Fabregas slid a Burnley player, just like Cahill.

In the 88th minute, Chelsea was reduced to nine men.

Minutes later, Robbie Brady hit a free kick in the post and it all ended 3-2 in favour of Burnley

The visitors wins an extraordinary match which sees the champions feeling down casted.
