Champions Chelsea hammered at home as shaky Liverpool held away at Watford

The Premier League champions have already invested heavily in their squad, spending just over £120 million on bringing Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger to Stamford Bridge.

Youth-team graduate Jeremie Boga made his debut, but was hauled off in the reshuffle that followed Cahill's 14th-minute dismissal for a studs-up foul on Steven Defour.

Striker Sam Vokes scored two of them by converting crosses out wide, either side of a stunning volley by left back Stephen Ward.

Coming into the new season as champions, Chelsea's prospective attacking problems had one silver lining: their defense would be undoubtedly solid.

That's all for now, we'll be back around 2:30PM (UK time) to round-up on the day's events so far and get stuck into the 3PM fixtures!

Asked about the referee Craig Pawson's performance in sending off first Cahill and then Cesc Fàbregas, Conte offered a long pause before saying: "I prefer not to comment on the referee's decisions or the performance of the referee".

As we always tell you at this point, we're not permitted to show you footage of the goal.

"This result kills off the away win story for this season but we're not getting carried away", said Dyche. Chelsea begin the new season with a surprise defeat.

"In our pre-season, in every pre-season, I played our best formation and I did the same against Burnley". Why do I have to send a message? My choice was to put out the best players that we have in this moment.

Burnley then capitalized with a ruthless display that saw them score 3 times before the break. But it's a big win.

In other results of matches also played on Saturday, Miguel Britos scored a controversial 93rd-minute equaliser for Watford as Liverpool were held 3-3 in a thrilling game at Vicarage Road. "The equaliser was offside".

Frank de Boer made a losing start as Palace manager after a Joel Ward own goal and a Steve Mounie double earned Huddersfield a 3-0 win on their return to the top flight after an absence of 45 years.

Conte is reported to be unsatisfied with the club's transfer activity and his lack of say in the recruitment process, and on the evidence of his team's early disarray at Stamford Bridge the problems extend on to the pitch.

Wayne Rooney crowned his first appearance for formative club Everton since 2004 by notching the victor in a 1-0 win over Stoke City, heading in Dominic Calvert-Lewin's cross for his 199th Premier League goal.
