Chelsea 2-3 Burnley

Jack Cork of Burnley in action during the pre-season friendly match between Burnley and Hannover 96 at Turf Moor

Nigerian worldwide, Victor Moses will today serve his one-ban as Chelsea begin the defence of their Premier League title with a meeting against Burnley at Stamford Bridge today, aiming to build on their impressive opening-day record of previous years.

Newly-signed substitute Alvaro Morata got one back in the 69th minute, poking the ball in from a Willian cross and putting Burnley on the back foot.

Striker Steve Mounie scored twice as promoted Huddersfield stunned Crystal Palace with a 3-0 victory at Selhurst Park, spoiling Frank de Boer's debut as a Premier League coach on Saturday (Sunday NZT).

"We tried to keep the ball second half and contain them, but they're a fine side, they threw caution to the wind because they had nothing to lose". Jack Cork was the only new face in Burnley's team, but the Clarets - who sold key men Michael Keane and Andre Gray over the summer - upset the odds to raid the champions of three points.

But Rooney ended a scrappy first half when he headed in to mark his Goodison homecoming in the best possible style. That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley.

"It's a tough start but we've got some good games coming up in the first few matches and it's exciting".
