   Chelsea fans want Musonda to play against Burnely after seeing this cracking goal

Chelsea had two players sent off and lost to Burnley 3-2 in the first match of its English Premier League title defence on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time), intensifying the concerns surrounding the champions after their frustrating offseason in the transfer market.

Six minutes before half-time, left-back Stephen Ward made it 2-0 in stunning fashion.

Substitute Alvaro Morata pulled a goal back for the Blues midway through the second period only for Fabregas to be dismissed following a second booking. 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.

"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".

The Terriers were the better side and got the goals to prove it, with record signing Steve Mounie striking twice after Joel Ward's own goal had given David Wagner's side the lead.

Four injured after light plane flips on landing at Caloundra Airport
Around 2 p.m., deputies said a woman in the plane walked nearly a mile away and flagged down a passing auto . But the two people trapped, understood to be two men, had sustained lower limb injuries in the crash.


The 20-year-old was making his first start for the club after a loan spell at Granada. That was until Luiz sprinted onto Morata's pass and volleyed in to bring the nine men to within a goal of Burnley. "But we are not naive - we know this is only the start of the season".

Burnley held on, and Dyche said: "Overall (we deserved it), they're a top class side, with fantastic individuals, and 3-0 down is not usual for them".

Stefano Okaka's header opened the scoring for the home side before Sadio Mane equalised with a clinical finish only for Abdoulaye Doucoure to restore the lead from close range.

The Blues didn't come pouring out of the gates, either, though the hour mark saw a decent chance and shouts for a penalty as Burnley got extra chippy.

The central headed home Chris Brunt's free-kick on 31 minutes and that was enough to see off Eddie Howe's men.
