Chelsea Unravel in Premier League Opener Loss To Burnley

13 Août, 2017, 04:39 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Vokes, who scored two of those goals in the first half, admits his side were sloppy to allow Chelsea back into the game but feels after an atrocious away record past year, it was a huge result for the team and the club.

Another simple short free-kick saw the ball pinged into the Chelsea penalty area and unmarked Vokes smashed home a powerful header into the ball of the net.

Chelsea won the title for the second time in three seasons in 2016/17, with Cahill featuring in 37 league games as the Blues kept 16 clean sheets. Within three minutes it was 3-0, with another simple goal: another cross from the right by Defour, another awful piece of marking by David Luiz, and another simple headed finish by Vokes in hectares of space.

Cahill's early departure stunned Stamford Bridge, the defender taking a heavy touch and diving forward with his boot raised in a bid to win back possession against Defour, with referee Craig Pawson immediately brandishing a straight red.

Conte cut an unhappy figure on the sideline, as he has done during most of pre-season and at Wembley last weekend.

"In the next game, I don't know if Pedro is able to recover from his injury", Conte said.

The visitors shocked Stamford Bridge when they made it 3-0 shortly before half-time when Vokes got his second of the game with a well placed header in the 43rd minute. Five minute later Vokes met Steven Defour's cross to power home the third.

A sense of injustice spurred on Chelsea's riposte, which only grew when Cesc Fabregas became the second player to walk, for a second yellow card, less than ten minutes after substitute Alvaro Morata had reduced the arrears to 3-1.

The second half will shut will show whether the 10 man Chelsea could turn the match around.

Morata tapped in again soon after, but was denied by an offside flag after converting Christensen's delivery, which may have gone in had the ex-Real Madrid striker left it.

Team:: Courtois; Rudiger, David Luiz, Cahill; Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso; Willian, Boga, Batshuayi. David Luiz's late goal ensured a frantic finish but Burnley held on.

The champions had two men sent off in the game, Gary Cahill in the 14th minute and Cescc Fabregas in the 81st minute.
