The Premier League is already the gift that keeps on giving – and it’s been alive and kicking again for less than 24 hours.
After 13 goals in the first two games of the season, another five came at Stamford Bridge as nine-man champions Chelsea lost to Burnley.
How about that?
Gary Cahill – in his first game as club captain – was given a straight red card inside the opening 20 minutes.
Sam Vokes then scored either side of Stephen Ward’s fine finish to put the visitors 3-0 up as they made their numerical advantage count.
Boos rang out at half-time from the home fans, but their side gave it a good go in the second half.
Club-record signing Alvaro Morata made an instant impact, heading home and then assisting David Luiz.
But Cesc Fabregas was also given his marching orders for two yellow cards, the first of which came for sarcastically applauding the referee.
Digest all that?
Well to make matters worse for Chelsea, highly-rated youngster Jeremie Boga’s full debut ended in the saddest way possible when he was substituted to compensate for Cahill’s red card.
