'Burnley are the deserved winners'

Chelsea 2-3 Burnley

Pat Nevin

Ex-Chelsea winger at Stamford Bridge for 5 live Sport

Over the entirety of the game Burnley are the deserved winners.

Until Morata came on the Clarets were the better side by a distance. When it came to it, it was the sending off of Cahill that made a real difference.

Chelsea were simply insipid until they fell 3-0 down. Then Conte made some changes and it completely changed the game - you have to ask why the changes didn't happen earlier.

Good luck to the nation's football reporters, trying to distill that into 800 words!

'That's a huge result'

Chelsea 2-3 Burnley

Burnley

Sam Vokes, scorer of a double for Burnley, in the Stamford Bridge tunnel: "We were sloppy at times but we ground the result out and we're delighted as a result.

"That's a huge result - a lot was made of our away form last season. So that result is huge, a massive win for us at the start of the season.

"It was always going to be tough here but we got our heads down and put in a performance."

'At 3-0 up we should have made it safer'

Chelsea 2-3 Burnley

Burnley

Burnley midfielder Jack Cork, formerly of Chelsea: "They made it hard for us in the second half but a win’s a win and we’ve got three points on the board.

"Stephen Ward has a wand of a left foot - it was a great strike, a great goal!

"At 3-0 up we should have made it safer, but we got there in the end. It's always good to have a good start in the Premier League - it means a lot to us and to all the fans that came here and those at home."

Chelsea v Burnley referee
Reuters

With all the time-wasting, the goals, the substitutes and the sendings-off, I wouldn't be surprised if there were nine minutes of added time... it's four minutes!

After all the stoppages, to think the referee can give only four extra minutes! The referee has lost it, he's absolutely lost it.

Desperate times. For both sides. Burnley are clinging on, Chelsea pressing. Seconds left...

'It is remarkable'

Martin Keown

Chelsea look better with nine men than they did with 11 men. Burnley are just panicking. They are getting caught up in it.

It is remarkable, really. It is only Chelsea who could get back into it.

'It is not as bad as Cahill's'

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Football Focus

He has gone in again with the studs. It is not as bad as Cahill's, but he knows that once you are on a yellow card, you need to be careful going into a challenge.

Very rarely now do you see players going in at the side. It has crept into the game and they need to eradicate it.

'Fabregas falls off the tightrope'

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Steve Wilson

Match of the Day commentator at Stamford Bridge

I wonder if Craig Pawson got some help from his assistant on the far side, Lee Betts. Fabregas slid in and caught the foot of Jack Cork. His only intention was to win the ball. It was a harsh yellow.

His first yellow, however, for sarcastically applauding, was stupid. It put him on a tightrope, and he has just fallen off it.

Cesc Fabregas

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Fabregas is furious. The midfielder dives in to try and win the ball and catches jack Cork. Second yellow, followed by red. Cesc may feel the decision is harsh but he set himself up for it by getting an unnecessary first yellow for talking back to the ref.

Chelsea's afternoon gets even worse! Cesc Fabregas has been sent off!

Oh, close! N'Golo Kante lashes a shot just past the post. Lots of pressure from the home side. But time is running out.

Chelsea's title challenge under threat?

Antonio Conte knows that you don't kill the chicken because of one bad egg. But Chelsea's next four games are: Tottenham away, Everton here, Leicester away and Arsenal here. If those four matches go as badly as this, you could argue that the champions will be out of the title race before it has begun.

Another yellow. David Luiz has spoken out of turn. He wasn't happy with the disallowed goal.

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Oooh, for a second I thought Ben Mee's header from a corner was going in. Courtois is behind it though.

Soon after, the yellow card is out again, this time for a late tackle by the newly-introduced Arfield on Marcos Alonso.

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Two changes for Burnley. Defour and Gudmundsson are replaced by Scott Arfield and Jonathan Walters. The latter making his debut.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

3-2! Wait... no! The flag is up. Alvaro Morata has had a nightmare.

Andreas Christiansen's shot from an angle is going in. It doesn't need the touch from Morata, who is offside and prompts the flag to rise.

A crucial moment in this game.

'Alvaro Morata will be happy with that'

Burnley haven’t really done anything in the second half, they have just invited Chelsea on. Alvaro Morata will be happy with that. Conte is out now and is starting to point at the players.

'Morata looks 100% a centre forward'

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Pat Nevin

Ex-Chelsea winger at Stamford Bridge for 5 live Sport

Morata has looked absolutely superb since he's come on, especially his movement. He looks 100% a centre forward and looks like the sort of plyer who can deliver something special.

Questions, though, need to be asked of the manager - why wasn't he brought on at half-time?

Morata the debut king

Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Steve Wilson

Match of the Day commentator at Stamford Bridge

Scored on his debut in La Liga, scored on his debut in Serie A, scores on his debut in the Premier League. Alvaro Morata introduces some uncertainty into Burnley minds. Chelsea have one. Can they get two more in 22 minutes?

GOAL - Chelsea 1-3 Burnley

Alvaro Morata

Hope! Slim, but still...

Alvaro Morata adds a debut league goal to the ones he has scored in Spain and Italy. It is a well-taken diving header from an unmarked position in the box. Willian's ball to set him up was superb.

Now then, that makes the last 20 minutes more interesting!

Nothing has changed in this second half. Chelsea can't make the ball stick and are struggling to get enough men forward.

I've been watching Antonio Conte's reactions throughout this game - I have never seen such disgust and dismay.

Chelsea 0-3 Burnley

Chance for Burnley. Robbie Brady gets in round the back but steers his diving header wide. That would have driven in the final nail.

YELLOW CARD

Chelsea 0-3 Burnley

More screams from Chelsea fans and players as Ben Mee slides in late on Morata. It was clumsy but not as dangerous as Cahill's earlier, hence the yellow card.

Chelsea are suddenly up for this. A home goal now would make things interesting.

Chelsea 0-3 Burnley

Good save, Tom Heaton. Marcos Alonso's free-kick is heading for the top corner, but the Clarets keeper rises to tip it over.

The resulting corner leads to calls for a penalty for a tackle that leaves Rudiger on the floor. Didn't look anything in it to me.

Chelsea 0-3 Burnley

Biggest cheer from the home fans all afternoon is reserved for a booking for Robbie Brady for a shove on a Blues player. I think the Chelsea fans feel a bit hard done by, by Craig Pawson.

Chelsea 0-3 Burnley

Morata's first shot in English football flies well over the bar. He scored on his league debut in Spain and Italy. he may have to do even more than that this afternoon if Chelsea are to get anything... which is looking very unlikely.
