Two red cards condemn Chelsea to 2-3 loss to Burnley

Alvaro Morata, on as a second-half substitute, nodded in Willian's cross in the 69th minute.

However, the fixture had more twists and turns to offer and David Luiz brought down the deficit to just one goal after he latched on to Morata's header to provide hope to the Stamford Bridge faithful in the 88th minute.

Antonio Conte has admitted that Chelsea "lost composure" after the key moment of Gary Cahill's red card in their sensational opening-weekend 3-2 defeat to Burnley, but played down any idea of a crisis, as he insisted he trusts the players to get themselves out of this situation. "The second half was a lot better but we forgot to close the game". I have to try to adapt a new system and to anticipate playing with nine or 10 men in the next game.

"I thought the referee was fantastic, to handle the occasion, the stadium, the decisions, my staff tell me he's got them right".

Palace defender Joel Ward turned the ball into his own net to hand the Terriers the lead midway through the first half and just minutes later record signing Steve Mounie doubled the visitors' advantage.

"Very disappointing for sure", Lampard said on BT Sport.

The build-up to the game had been marred by Conte's visible frustration with his side's transfer business over the summer, with Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger their main acquisitions so far. It's a good day for my players and the fans today.

Wilmer Flores , Brandon Nimmo and Dominic Smith added base hits of their own in the winning effort for the Mets. The hit extended his hitting streak to 14 games, the longest hitting streak Herrera has had in his career.

"I am not anxious", Conte said.

"Your first win of course is always important when you are written off like we are every year".

Chelsea down to 9 men.

The Manchester United boss had led Chelsea to the title in 2014/15 but was sacked in December after a disastrous start to the season left the Blues in the relegation zone.

The defending Premier League champs also had two players sent off on a bad afternoon at Stamford Bridge. We kept the ball better, kept probing, and we kept putting balls in the box and go in 3-0. And it was weird at half-time because you're three up away at Chelsea and you have to decide how you're going to approach it from there.

"And your first away win is important after last season [not getting one until April], so it kills a few things off early doors".
