Chelsea's Premier League title defence couldn't have got off to a worse start, as they were humbled in their opening clash of the 2017/18 season, as goals from Sam Vokes and Stephen Ward saw them defeated 3-2 by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Turns out Morata can play, and his diving header met a classy bit of playmaking from Willian to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute.

Chelsea very almost completed a dramatic comeback in the second half, with goals from substitute Alvaro Morata and David Luiz, but a red card for Cesc Fabregas meant that their attempt to recover was carried out with nine men, and Burnley were resolute enough to secure the win.

The Blues bagged a second goal in the 87th minute as Morata's knock-on found David Luiz, who volleyed home from six-yards out.

Mee believes that Chelsea's new striker Alvaro Morata, who joined from Spanish champions Real Madrid last month, could pose a threat to Burnley defenders but is confident that team will come up with and stick to a solid game plan.

"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".

It wasn't to be the end of the first half scoring.

With two extra men, and a two goal lead intact, Burnley looked set to hold on.

Swansea failed to muster a single shot on target and will be relieved to have escaped with a point against a Southampton side which has now failed to score at St Mary's in 545 minutes.

Huddersfield Town made a dream start to their debut season in the Premier League as they beat Crystal Palace 3-nil away.

Tony Pulis ended a positive week by watching his side claim a first-day win over Bournemouth, after signing a new contract with the Baggies on Friday.

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