CHELSEA 2-3 BURNLEY
FT: One last ball in the box by Chelsea, but Tarkowski has the answer again! What a game he's had!
More pinball in the box as Alonso drills a low ball in, but Morata can't turn it home!
THAT'S IT! Thrilling, thrilling game at Stamford Bridge, and the champions are beaten despite an unbelievable fightback in the second half with NINE men! The boos are for Craig Pawson, the referee, but in fairness to him, the big decisions were correct.
90+4: Stunning, stunning game of football, and with 60 seconds remaining, Burnley look to have won this...
90+3: Long ball into the box from the free-kick, but it's ushered out of play...
90+2: Free kick to Chelsea, a chance to pile the box! Christensen comes off, Musonda is on...
90+1: Four minutes added on! Huge roar around the Bridge!
90: Pawson awards Burnley a free-kick just on the edge of the box as Vokes is sandwiched by Rudiger and Luiz. Luiz already has a booking, and it's hard to tell who makes the contact?!
OFF THE POST! Brady takes, and hits the bottom of the post with a fine effort!
GOAL! CHELSEA 2-3 BURNLEY (Luiz 88)
GAME ON!!! Azpilicueta piles it forward, Morata flicks it on brilliantly for Luiz behind the defence, and he volleys home!
Can the NINE men of Chelsea save this?!
CHELSEA 1-3 BURNLEY
88: Chelsea are still piling forward. Morata appeals for a push, Willian has the ball in acres at an angle, but Mee eventually clears.
85: Morata fights well on the edge of the box to shoot, but Cork gets a deflection to take the sting out of it, and Heaton saves easily.
83: What a nightmare for the champions. '3-1 to the referee' sing the Stamford Bridge crowd, but he's got that decision spot on. He's been very card happy this afternoon, but that's a definite yellow.
What was Fabregas playing at? His earlier yellow was for a sarcastic clap at Pawson, who won't be getting many Christmas cards from Chelsea fans.
81: RED CARD FOR FABREGAS! Wow. Chelsea are down to nine.
Fabregas is shown a second yellow card, and he is absolutely apoplectic with the officials. He flies in on Cork, may take a bit of the ball, but Cork got their first. It's a definite yellow.
81: The ball falls to Kante on the edge of the box, he aims for the top left-hand corner, but gets a little too much movement on it, much to the relief of Tom Heaton.
79: Morata is offside from Alonso's left-wing ball, and Luiz is furious with the officials. Yellow card for him now.
77: Arfield goes very high and late on Alonso... I'm not sure he catches him, but a deserved yellow from Pawson.
75: Double sub for Burnley. Arfield and Walters are on, Gudmundsson and Defour come off.
73: BALL IN THE NET! But Morata is offside! Christensen is found on the right behind the defence, he takes a touch and crosses for Morata to slot into the empty net, but the Spaniard is just offside!
Right decision, but if Morata had left the ball, it may have sneaked in!
71: Chelsea have a spring in their step now. Knocking the ball about nicely. Azpilicueta crosses first time after some nice build-up, but Heaton comes out to collect.
GOAL! CHELSEA 1-3 BURNLEY (Morata 69)
The debutant scores! Willian curls in a beautiful ball from the right, finding Morata onside as he drifts inbetween the Burnley centre-halves.
He's six yards out, and glances a header into the corner past Heaton! Game on!
CHELSEA 0-3 BURNLEY
67: Brady sneaks in at the far post from Gudmundsson's deep ball, but Willian distracts him enough and he heads wide.
Alvaro Morata to score the next goal has been price boosted by Sky Bet to 5/1 from 4/1, while both teams to score in the second half is 6/1 from 11/2. Burnley to win 3-0 is 6/4, 3-1 is 5/2 and 3-2 10/1. Click here for all the latest match odds!
65: Intelligent run by Morata, Mee has to fly in, and is booked. Chelsea want a red, but Pawson is keeping that in his pocket for now.
Fabregas crosses, Luiz is unmarked on the volley, but he doesn't catch it well enough. Over the bar.
Paul Merson has reacted to the introduction of club-record signing Alvaro Morata at the Bridge, calling it a "shocking decision".
Merse is calling it "damage limitation", with the Spaniard replacing Batshuayi in attack rather than Chelsea going for it by playing two men up front.
63: Brady booked for a body check on Willian, 30 yards out.
SAVE! Alonso strikes it superbly with his left, but Heaton tips it over well! Good starting position from the Burnley stopper.
61: Morata not shy. He picks the ball up 30 yards out and has a go, but it flies well over the bar. Strangely, the Chelsea fans applaud.
60: Alvaro Morata comes on for his Premier League debut... replacing Michy Batshuayi for the final 30 minutes.
59: Corner Burnley, Brady finds Vokes at the back post but he can't get enough on his header and it floats wide.
57: Fabregas wins the ball from behind on Kendrick... but Pawson awards a free-kick. The Blues fans are absolutely furious here.
55: Chelsea with a pen appeal. Alonso crosses, it hits the arm of Lowton, who has it quite close to his body, and Pawson just about correctly waves play on. Unintentional.
53: Alonso pushes forward again down the left, but his deflected cross just goes behind for a corner.
That's cleared by Vokes, who has been superb so far, but here come Chelsea again..
51: SAVE! Fine stop from Heaton as he tips over Alonso's long-range effort! He then gathers the corner at the second attempt, and Burnley survive.
Chelsea pushing early in the second half.
49: NO shots on target for Chelsea so far. Rudiger has a go from range but it's wide.
Also, no Premier League champion has ever conceded three goals on the opening day of the following season.
47: Conte has changed the system again. They've gone four at the back, Christensen right-back, Rudiger and Luiz in the middle, Alonso left.
46: Back underway at the Bridge...
Chelsea are now an unbelievable 66/1 to turn this game around, while the draw is 20/1 and Burnley 1/25. Both teams to score in the second half is 5/2 from 9/4 and Sam Vokes to net a hat-trick is 7/2 from 100/30. The visitors to win 4-0 is now 15/2 from 7/1. Click here for all the latest match odds!
HT: Boos ring out at the Bridge, but they're mainly reserved for referee Craig Pawson. They're furious, and that Cahill red card will be debated for some time.
Can Chelsea claw back any pride? Or have Burnley got this won?
It's 24 years since they first lost their opening game at home, Chelsea...
45: Kante attempts to bend one into the far corner from the edge, but it's deflected out for a corner. Burnley eventually clear after some pinball.
Shocked faces in the Stamford Bridge crowd...
GOAL! CHELSEA 0-3 BURNLEY (Vokes 43)
This is unbelievable. Conte wanted to avoid having a 'Mourinho season'... but it's started off with more than a touch of deja vu for the Stamford Bridge crowd.
Defour with a lovely cross from the right, and it's plum on Vokes' head as he steers it past Courtois, but the striker managed to get in-between Luiz and Alonso with ease there.
Nobody was expecting this... even with 10 men!
CHELSEA 0-2 BURNLEY
41: Just as it looked like Chelsea may be putting the pressure on for an equaliser, Burnley score from nowhere. Ward, who has scored just two Premier League goals for Burnley, with a stunner.
GOAL! CHELSEA 0-2 BURNLEY (Ward 39)
WOW! Burnley go two up in fine fashion!
Ward picks the ball up on the left of the box from Cork's lofted ball. Ward takes a superb touch to set himself up from the angle, and then fires past Courtois into the far corner with a fine half volley on his left foot!
Beautifully worked, and a nightmare start for the champions!
CHELSEA 0-1 BURNLEY
39: Chelsea have had more of the ball, 58 per cent, than Burnley, but not doing much with it so far. Tarkowski in particular has been a rock in defence for the visitors.
37: Burnley penned into their half now as Chelsea look for an equaliser. Azpilicueta, now captain, has seen plenty of the ball down the right.
35: Chelsea working hard in the final third. Kante does well to win the ball off Defour, but his through ball for Azpilicueta is out of play.
33: Alonso cuts in from the left onto his right foot, looks for the bottom right corner, but Tarkowski is superbly placed yet again.
31: Chelsea fans very frustrated here. Burnley are defending well when the hosts do form an attack, and here comes Lowton down the right again...
He plays it into Brady, but Rudiger puts in a superb challenge.
Burnley are now 5/6 favourites with Sky Bet to win the match, while Chelsea are out to 7/2 with the draw 5/2. The visitors to win the match 1-0 is 9/2 with a 1-1 draw 7/2 and a 2-1 win for Chesea 7/1. Click here for all the latest match odds!
28: Burnley fans loving this so far, and they're having all the possession. Brady crosses, but Luiz clears.
Sarcastic applause as Fabregas is awarded a free-kick.
26: Defour has seen so much of the ball early on in midfield. With a rare attack, Willian nearly forces his way through, but Tarkowski again intercepts. He's had a fine game so far.
GOAL! CHELSEA 0-1 BURNLEY (Vokes 24)
Burnley have knocked the champions off their feet! Matt Lowton has the ball on the right and has plenty of time to cross...
It's behind Vokes as the ball comes into the area about 12 yards out, but he flicks it onto the bottom far corner past Courtois! Disastrous start for Chelsea.
CHELSEA 0-0 BURNLEY
22: The game is a lot more frantic now as Burnley look to catch Chelsea on the backfoot. Stamford Bridge still digesting that red card, which Merse says was just about deserved.
