Chelsea 2-3 Burnley: 9-man Blues almost come back

But the youngster's debut lasted only 18 minutes as captain Gary Cahill was sent off for a studs-up challenge and he was replaced soon after.

Huddersfield Town made a dream start to their debut season in the Premier League by beating Crystal Palace 3-0 away from home.

That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley.

But Burnley could have got a fourth but Robbie Brady's free kick rebounded off the post.

Cahill's early departure stunned Stamford Bridge, the defender taking a heavy touch and diving forward with his boot raised in a bid to win back possession against Defour, with referee Craig Pawson immediately brandishing a straight red.

It has been a baptism of fire for the former Real Madrid striker, who missed a penalty in the Community Shield defeat against Arsenal last week, but Conte was full of praise for the Spain global.

Sam Vokes has a brace and Stephen Ward bagged a goal to leave Chelsea with a mountain to climb in the second half. Conte also revealed that he is not yet sure whether Pedro will recover in time from an ankle knock. Vokes, standing just behind him, beat Thibaut Courtois with a faint contact that dribbled perfectly into the far corner.

Dulquer's Bollywood debut will not be a romantic love story
On the otherside, Dulquer is eagerly waiting for the release of Malayalam-Tamil film Solo , directed by Bejoy Nambiar. Stars Dulquer Salmaan and Dino Morea also shared the teaser for the Tamil-Malayalam bilingual film on their handles.

The visitors shocked Stamford Bridge when they made it 3-0 shortly before half-time when Vokes got his second of the game with a well placed header in the 43rd minute.

The Blues were better after the break and pulled a goal back when Alvaro Morata headed in on 69 minutes shortly after coming in as a substitute.

And four minutes later, Burnley incredibly scored a third.

Fabregas and Cahill will be suspended for Chelsea's tough second match of the season, away to Tottenham at Wembley Stadium next weekend.

Chelsea were reduced to nine players in the 81st minute when Cesc Fabregas was shown a second yellow card but Dyche felt his team deserved the win.

He scored Chelsea's first of the afternoon after an hour, drifting into the box to meet Willian's perfectly weighted cross and was then narrowly offside when it appeared he had netted a second.

David Luiz's smooth finish set up a tense finale but Chelsea could not find the final goal to salvage a draw and fell to defeat.
