Premier League: Chelsea’s 19-Year Record Ended By Burnley

Chelsea has never lost in the opening day of the Premier league since losing 2-1 at Coventry City in 1998/1999 season.

Burnley put a stop to the record with 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were undone by two red cards as captain Tim Cahill and midfielder Cesc Fabregas were both sent off in each half.
