However, rival supporters are not impressed with the actions of the Blues faithful and think they should be a bit more grateful to a team that has won two Premier League titles in the last three seasons.

Summer signings Antonio Rüdiger and Álvaro Morata are both expected to feature in Chelsea's starting lineup, though Antonio Conte's side will be without the injured Tiemoué Bakayoko and Eden Hazard, while Victor Moses is suspended.

Frenchman N'Golo Kante had a chance to equalize for the Blues in the 29th minutes after being wonderfully set up by former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, but he was unable to beat Burnley goalie Heaton.

With Chelsea at 10 men, Burnley went on a tear to close the first half, scoring three unanswered goals to put Chelsea in a deep hole, and the goals conceded were caused by woeful defending as much as they were by playing a man down.

It was really an very bad day for Chelsea who ended the game with nine players.

Despite falling to nine Chelsea continued to push forward as they looked to salvage anything from what would be a humbling opening-day defeat, and they made sure the last minutes were interesting as they managed to salvage another goal.

Miguel Britos denied Liverpool an opening-day win with a last-gasp 93rd-minute equaliser for Watford at Vicarage Road.

Antonio Conte gave Alvaro Morata 31 minutes from the substitutes' bench on his Premier League debut and he scored with a header. "He needs to see it", said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

"We're hoping we're learning, building a mentality, with an assured view of the Premier League". It's a dream start for one of the club's favored for relegation this season.

The beginning of the Premier League season is weird, man.
