Chelsea vs. Burnley: Time, Channel & Lineup

Chelsea vs. Burnley: Time, Channel & Lineup

Sam Vokes capitalised on the numerical advantage and Chelsea's poor defending, scoring either side of a goal from team mate Stephen Ward, to send Burnley into the halftime break 3-0 up.

Sam Vokes put Burnley up 1- after 24 minutes.

Chelsea's task was made even tougher in the 80th minute when Cesc Fabregas was sent off for picking up his second yellow card of the game.

It was not until April that northwest side Burnley enjoyed an away win in the Premier League last season and the significance of Saturday's victory in London was not lost on Vokes.

And Conte says he isn't anxious about his squad depth. Boga, an exciting talent, had little time to make any sort of impact before becoming the unfortunate collateral damage of Cahill's early red, sacrificed for Andreas Christensen in the 18th minute. Chelsea are also without Eden Hazard, Pedro and Tiemoue Bakayoko, who are all injured, and they sold Nemaja Matic this summer to Manchester United.




Vokes, who scored two of those goals in the first half, admits his side were sloppy to allow Chelsea back into the game but feels after an atrocious away record past year, it was a huge result for the team and the club.

Alvaro Morata's introduction and fine header in the second half prompted the loudest cheer of all at Stamford Bridge, but proved no more than a gilded consolation prize on an otherwise utterly wretched afternoon. He scored off a Willian assist and then helped David Luiz to a goal with five minutes to play.

The Blues didn't come pouring out of the gates, either, though the hour mark saw a decent chance and shouts for a penalty as Burnley got extra chippy.

No one would believe that Burnley would provide such an astonishing performance at Stamford Bridge as many Chelsea fans left the Stadium livid.

"That's a huge result - a lot was made of our away from last season", he said.
