In the min time Chelsea captain Gary Cahill received a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Steven Defour, Sam Vokes put Burnley ahead in the 24th minute, volleying in Matthew Lowton’s cross.

Burnley number 23 Left back Stephen Ward doubled the lead a quarter of an hour later with a fierce shot after a one-two with Jack Cork.

The Clarets made it 3-0 before half-time when Vokes headed in Defour’s free-kick.

Spanish strker of chelsea Alvaro Morata, on as a second-half substitute, nodded in Willian’s cross in the 69th minute.
