Burnley are pinned back. Everyone is forward. Azpilicueta hurls a long throw into the area, headed away. Courtois humps it forward, Kante passes to the side. Willian crosses into the middle, Alonso drives it in low, Burnley clear… and that’s it!

Conte is being held back by his coaching team as he gets more and more agitated on the touchline. He’s wearing a tracksuit today – not the suave, smartly dressed appearance we’re used to from him.
The ball is played long to Morata, Burnley win a free-kick.
BURNLEY HIT THE POST! Vokes is the meat in a Chelsea sandwich and the referee gives a free-kick to Burnley, booking Rudiger. The free-kick is and smacks off the post with Courtois totally beaten!
Four minutes of injury time to come! ARHGHRHGHGHGRHGHGRR
DAVID LUIZ HAS MADE IT 3-2! What a game. This is amazing.
The ball is played long to Morata, who has spotted Luiz’s run into the box as a striker and cleverly heads it on for him. Luiz finishes on the volley.
Alonso goes down in the area, the crowd screams for a penalty but it’s laughable. He’s looking for the foul, Brady tracks his run and just can’t help but smile. The referee has actually had a really good game here – try telling that to the home fans.
Burnley are still all behind the ball, blocking the space in their own final third. Chelsea dominating possession with nine men.
This must be right up there with one the worst ever opening day performances from defending champions. Chelsea are still attacking with nine men.
Cesc is off! He dives into a slide challenge and catches the player full on the shin. And somehow he’s adamant it wasn’t even a foul.
