Burnley kicked off the season with a 3-2 win against Chelsea on Saturday, in match that saw the Premier League champions finish with nine men.
Manager Sean Dyche could not have asked for a better start to the campaign. The Clarets took full advantage of a 14-minute red card by Chelsea captain Gary Cahill, who was sent off for studs-up challenge, as Sam Vokes fired a first-time strike past Thibuat Courtois 10 minutes later. The visitors would go on to double their lead through Stephen Ward on 39-minutes when the fullback smashed home a left-footed volley, while Vokes grabbed his brace with a powerful header four minutes later. The outing had its twists and turns in the second however, with Chelsea pulling two back and Cesc Fabregas also seeing red, but Burnley held firm to secure all three points at Stamford Bridge.
