Morata thought he had a second soon after but his strike was chalked off for offside and Chelsea's chances of fighting back appeared to be over when Cesc Fabregas received a second yellow card on 81 minutes.
Having gone down to 10 men following Gary Cahill's red card after 15 minutes, Sam Vokes gave the away side a surprise lead, before Irish defender Stephen Ward doubled his side's advantage with a stunning half-volley from the edge of the box. It's a game the Blues really ought to win, though their opponents did establish themselves as a very solid mid-table outfit last season, and have strengthened in the transfer market.
"I am not worried because we have to trust in our work and today there were three injured players, Pedro, Hazard, Bakayoko, one player missed for a ban in Moses". Romelu Lukaku pushed him close last time around and will hope a move to Old Trafford will be what he needs to claim the golden boot.

Chelsea vs Burnley: Chelsea and Burnley are facing against each other in the English Premier League today (August 12, 2017). Burnley have lost all three Premier League openers in club history, and have never beaten Chelsea in six attempts in Premier League play.
It was indeed a splendid and one-sided first half for the visitors, who simply outplayed the 10-man reigning champions. It's important to have this habit to face the pressure. "We didn't lose the balance and we tried to change the final result".
"It's very difficult at this club to make massive strides", the Englishman added. In fact, they opened up the pitch more with 10 on the pitch.
Burnley's form at home and away contrasted sharply last season.
