Champions Chelsea reduced to nine and beaten 3-2 by Burnley

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill was sent off midway through the first half for a reckless tackle on Steven Defour.

Burnley's lead was doubled when, with a little over five minutes remaining until the break, Jack Cork set up Stephen Ward to hammer home, and it was 3-0 before the interval when Vokes scored his second with a header. Chelsea substitute Alvaro Morata reduced the deficit with a header of his own within minutes of being introduced off the bench, but Cesc Fabregas was sent off for a second yellow card in the 81st minute.

Chelsea had not lost on the opening day of the season since 1998 and paraded the Premier League trophy before kick-off as a reminder of the size of the task facing the Clarets.

Spanish global Alvaro Morata came from the bench to score the first goal for the Blues in the 69th minutes before David Luiz netted at the death as the match ended 3-2 in favor of Burnley.

Thanks to its involvement in Formula One, Infiniti knows a thing or two about advanced powertrains and electric setups. Rather than power the front wheels, like in the Leaf, the Prototype 9's electric motor powers the rear wheels.

Soon after, Vokes had a goal called offside.

Mauricio Pellegrino had to settle for a point in his first match as Southampton manager as his side wasted a series of chancs. That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley.

Wayne Rooney marked his Premier League return to Goodison Park with a dream winning goal as Everton got their 2017/18 season off to the flawless start.

In some of the other Saturday games, Watford and Liverpool ended their game 3-3 while newly promoted side Huddersfield Town stunned Crystal Palace 3-0 away from home. And it was weird at half-time because you're three up away at Chelsea and you have to decide how you're going to approach it from there. "At 3-0 up we should have made it safer, but we got there in the end". Disjointed and embarrassed in the first half, Chelsea threatened to mount the most unlikely of comebacks in a stirring second-half display, but just failed to overcome their numerical disadvantage.
