Chelsea fans fume at Antonio Conte and the board as Blues struggle against Burnley

Conte: Chelsea don't deserve to be among Premier League faves

He continued: "Big decisions changed the outcome, quite obviously". Fabregas departs. Not the greatest of starts for the champions. They did that and more.

He was happy with the fight his Chelsea side showed in the second half but believes after losing Cahill in the first period, his team lost their heads for a while that led to the three goals from Burnley.

The Blues were stunned by Sean Dyche's men in a 3-2 thriller at Stamford Bridge.

Morata dived to head home his first Premier League goal from a Willian cross and bundled the ball home moments later only to see an offside flag deny him. The jeers were likely directed at the match officials, with Chelsea having a player sent off in both halves.

In the 82nd, Cesc Fabregas earned the champs their second red of the game, receiving his marching orders after be handed his second yellow card for a late challenge on Jack Cork.

Somehow the Blues pulled a second back through David Luiz in the 88th minute, but there was to be no dramatic comeback for Antonio Conte's team.

Burnley have lost all three Premier League openers in club history, and have never beaten Chelsea in six attempts in Premier League play.

Arsenal pressured after the equalizer and almost scored through Kolasinac, but a needless turnover on the other end between Elneny and Granit Xhaka allowed Leicester to take its first lead of the match. But the hornets also landed the opening punch, with a goal from Stefano Okaka in the eighth minute.

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mo Salah scored for Liverpool, which was without Coutinho amid interest in the playmaker from Barcelona.




Liverpool appeared to be heading for victory after Firmino sent Watford keeper Heurelho Gomez the wrong way with his spot-kick and then chipped the ball into Salah's stride to put the visitors 3-2 ahead. Jamie Vardy scored twice for Leicester, who twice blew leads after conceding a second-minute opener to new Arsenal signing Alexandre Lacazette.

From then on, the Clarets took complete control of the game and went three goals up.

Mahrez almost equalized less than two minutes later in sensational fashion, with his volleyed attempt off a set piece going tantalizingly wide of Petr Cech's goal.

Almost 5,000 days later, Wayne Rooney is back scoring in the blue of Everton. Alan Shearer is the only player in Premier League history to have been involved in more, with 324.

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.

The Terriers defeated Crystal Palace to open the season.
