Burnley Upsets Defending Champion Chelsea 3-2

LONDON – Burnley stunned defending champion Chelsea 3-2 on Saturday in first-round Premier League action at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley, which struggled to avoid relegation last season, scored three goals in the first half against an out-of-sorts Chelsea, which went a man down when Gary Cahill was shown a red card 14 minutes after kickoff.

Sam Vokes opened the scoring for Burnley after 24 minutes, while Stephen Ward scored the second goal 15 minutes later.

Vokes then struck again two minutes before the end of the first half to put the visitors up 3-0.

Spanish forward Alvaro Morata, who was making his Premier League debut, scored the first goal for Chelsea in the 69th minute.

David Luiz scored the second goal for the hosts in the 88th minute, but the defending champions failed to get the equalizer as Burnley came away with an unexpected three points.

Burnley now is provisionally in third place in the Premier League table with three points, while Chelsea is in the 17th spot with none.

Huddersfield Town provisionally leads the standings on goal differential after its 3-0 away victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Premier League kicked off in high-scoring fashion on Friday with Arsenal’s 4-3 win over Leicester City.
