   Chelsea fans want Musonda to play against Burnely after seeing this cracking goal

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

Luiz pulled another goal back for the home side, two minutes from time, with a left-footed finish past Tom Heaton, and a tense end to the game ensued.

Referee Craig Pawson was heavily criticised by Chelsea players and fans for his decisions at Stamford Bridge, but Dyche, who was told by staff he got the decisions correct, praised the officials. They haven't lost an opening day fixture since Coventry in 1998, winning 15 games over that span.

However, it is the first red card Chelsea have received in league action for 40 matches.

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.

Mounie capped a dream debut with another goal after the break to earn David Wagner's newly-promoted team an impressive win.

The result will not improve the mood of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who hasn't hidden his frustration at failing to significantly bolster his squad in the offseason. The game between Swansea and Southampton had no goals, while Wayne Rooney bagged the victor as Everton saw off Stoke City 1-0.

Rooney brought a dreary game to life on the stroke of half-time when he headed in from Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross, and it was enough to earn the Toffees a deserved three points on Merseyside.

"First half better, second half not as well, but they're a good side - their physicality, they're a strong side, they press high, fast, and it can put you off kilter".

The home side dominated throughout but were unable to make a breakthrough, with Manolo Gabbiadini and Maya Yoshida guilty of spurning good opportunities.

Southampton were held to a goalless draw by Swansea at St Mary's Stadium, as West Brom beat Bournemouth 1-nil.

Sean Dyche cut nearly as pessimistic a figure as Conte in the buildup to this season.
