Nine-man Chelsea shocked by Burnley on opening day

12 August 2017, 10:37 | Kelvin Horton

Last season, Burnley lost 3-0 at Chelsea and drew 1-1 at Turf Moor but Mee believes that results early in the last campaign, including home wins over Liverpool and Everton and a draw at Manchester United, are a cause for optimism.

Chelsea brought in Alvaro Morata in the second half and it paid off as the Spaniad got his first goal for the club to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute of the game.

Morata thought he had a second soon after but his strike was chalked off for offside and Chelsea's chances of fighting back appeared to be over when Cesc Fabregas received a second yellow card on 81 minutes.

As well as worsening Chelsea's predicament, the Spaniard's dismissal marked the first occasion ever on which two players from the same team had been sent off on a Premier League opening day.

Asked whether he sensed the champions were vulnerable without Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Pedro and Tiemoue Bakayoko, he added: "I don't think so".


Stephen Ward then made it 2-0 in spectacular manner, firing a volley past Chelsea keeper, Thibaut Courtois, from a tight angle after 39 minutes.

You'd be forgiven as a Tottenham fan if you were a little nervous looking ahead to next Sunday's Week 2 match against defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

And with just over 20 minutes remaining, Premier League debutant Morata - who had replaced the inauspicious Michy Batshuayi - met an excellent Willian cross and guided a header into the far corner.

Chelsea are expected to make new signings before the end of the transfer window with British media reporting that Conte is dissatisfied with the depth of his squad. Our performances against the big teams were pretty good past year, barring Chelsea away.

The visitors were the better side overall with a disciplined, energetic and ruthless first-half display that saw them put three past the Blues, with Sam Vokes netting twice.
