CHELSEA 

Thibaut Courtois

Slow to get down to the opening goal, got a hand to the ball but could not stop it. Little chance with others. 6

Antonio Rudiger

The German had a difficult Premier League debut, starting on the right of the back three but switched to the left after Cahill’s red card. 6

Gary Cahill

Chelsea lost their captain after 14 minutes when he got a straight red for going studs-up on Steven Defour, and never recovered. 4

David Luiz

Didn’t look comfortable and questioned when Sam Vokes had a free header in the six yard box for the third goal. Scored late on. 5

Cesar Azpilicueta

Played as a right wing-back with Victor Moses suspended, and didn’t have the same impact as the Nigerian. 6

N’Golo Kante

Usual tireless performance, but little back-up. Let Stephen Ward pass him too easily for Burnley’s second goal. 7

Cesc Fabregas

Involved in plenty of the play, but Burnley and frustrated him and he lost his head, going off after being booked for dissent and then a foul. 5

Marcos Alonso

Booked early on for a clumsy challenge, but one of Chelsea’s best attacking options, having long range shots saved twice. 7

Willian

Always involved and dangerous, but got little joy from Burnley’s defence until he crossed for Morata to score. 7

Michy Batshuayi

Very poor once again, and given sarcastic cheer from home crowd when he got one pass right. Replaced by Morata after 58 minutes. 5

Jeremie Boga 

The 20-year-old academy product made a short debut, being sacrificed after 16 minutes following Cahill’s red card. 5

Subs:

Andreas Christensen (for Boga 16)

The former Borussia Dortmund loanee went on when Cahill was sent off, and had a goal disallowed. 6

Alvaro Morata (for Batshuayi 58)

Scored on his Premier League debut with a diving header but cost Chelsea a second with an offside touch on Christensen’s shot 6

Charly Musonda (for Christensen 89)

Subs not used: Willy Caballero, Kenedy, Fikayo Tomori, Kyle Scott.

BURNLEY 

Tom Heaton

Solid display as ever from the young England keeper, though he did not have a shot to save in the first half. 8

Matthew Lowton

Solid defensively and good going forward, hardly put a foot wrong as Burnley kept the Champions at bay. 7

James Tarkowski

Outstanding performance from the former Brentford stopper who only established himself at Burnley late last season. 8

Ben Mee

Solid alongside Tarkowski in the centre of Burnley’s defence, kept his head and made important blocks when needed. 8

Stephen Ward

Good defensively and scored an outstanding second goal when he cut in from the left and hammered the ball past Courtois. 8

Steven Defour

Excellent controlled performance at the heart of midfield and crossed superbly for Vokes second goal. 8

Jack Cork

Must have enjoyed returning to the club where he started his career but never played for the first team. Excellent throughout. 8

Jeff Hendrick

Solid, no-nonsense from the Irish midfielder who helped Burnley squeeze the life out of Chelsea. Hit post with late free kick. 7

Robbie Brady

Did what he does best, delivering the ball into the box and linking play well. Heavily involved in the opening goal. 7

Sam Vokes

Superb start for the Welshman. Had an early goal disallowed and but made up for it with a volleyed opener and superb header. 9

Johann Berg Gudmundsson

Quiet and steady display by the Icelandic midfielder, helping to keep Ngolo Kante and Cesc Fabregas quiet. 6

Jeff Hendrick
