Three minutes added on.

9:48pm

9:47pm

Almost a brilliant goal from Drogba, taking down Courtois' long kick on his knee before smashing a volley just wide.

9:45pm

Sordell booked for a feisty challenge on Terry, which was appreciated by the Burnley fans!

9:45pm

9:42pm

Cheers from the Chelsea fans and boos from the Burnley fans as Drogba comes on for Hazard.

9:40pm

Burnley sub: Sordell for Ings.

9:40pm

Chelsea sub: Mikel for Oscar.

9:39pm

Attendance: 20,699 (Chelsea 3,808).

9:37pm

World Cup winner Schurrle off for Chelsea, £32m Willian on. Although he was in the Brazil squad that lost 7-1.

9:34pm

Cheers for the use of the vanishing spray by referee Michael Oliver, but a neat set piece doesn't quite come off.

9:33pm

Chelsea fans are in full voice here but Burnley are pushing forward looking for a goal back.

9:28pm

Second sub: Kightly for Taylor.

9:28pm

Burnley sub: Barnes for Jutkiewicz.

9:19pm

Jutkiewicz fires an angled shot across the face of goal. Chelsea fans in good voice here though.

9:17pm

9:14pm

Cheers from the Burnley fans to greet the first use of the vanishing spray at Turf Moor, then further cheers as Schurrle's free kick went over the bar.

9:10pm

Superb save from Courtois to deny Arfield's curling effort.

8:59pm

8:52pm

8:47pm

Half time: Burnley 1 Chelsea 3. Burnley being applauded off by the home fans.

8:43pm

A strong run from Arfield, he has impressed tonight.

8:42pm

Lancashire Telegraph:

8:37pm

Gary Lineker on Twitter: "It will get easier after this game, Burnley."

8:36pm

As disappointing as it is for Burnley, you have to be impressed by the way Chelsea have come back from a goal down here. Man United couldn't do it five years ago, but this Chelsea team look a very, very good side.

8:34pm

Ben Mee didn't get away with that one unfortunately, as Ivanovic escaped the Burnley man to volley in Fabregas' corner from close range. The second goal was brilliant, that one could have been avoided.

8:33pm

Burnley 1 Chelsea 3: Ivanovic.

8:31pm

Ben Mee has got away with one, his backpass had played Costa in, but the striker was already on his way down before any minimal contact with Heaton.

8:30pm

Diego Costa is booked for a dive as he rounds Heaton. Chelsea are furious but I think it was the right decision.

8:29pm

Burnley battling back, Ings and Jutkiewicz in the thick of it in the box but Chelsea just managed to scramble clear.

8:25pm

Lancashire Telegraph:

8:23pm

Burnley started to look ragged now, they're being put under real pressure by a very good team.

8:22pm

You have to say that was a brilliantly worked goal, Oscar found Ivanovic, who clipped the ball to Fabregas on the edge of the box. First time Fabregas played the ball into the path of the advancing Schurrle, who slid the ball home. Pretty unstoppable to be honest.

8:21pm

Burnley 1 Chelsea 2: Schurrle.

8:18pm

Burnley fans reacted well to the goal, encouraging their side with applause. A blue smoke bomb was thrown on to the pitch from the Chelsea end.

8:17pm

Sadly that did not last long, Jason Shackell turned Ivanovic's low cross against his own post and the ball rebounded for Costa, who made no mistake from eight yards for his first Chelsea goal.

8:16pm

Burnley 1 Chelsea 1: Costa

8:16pm

8:15pm

Is that Scott Arfield's Robbie Blake moment? It certainly will be if Burnley can hang on to this lead and secure an incredible result.

8:14pm

Just a superb volley from Arfield, and you fancied him from that position after his form last seaosn. Mourinho just stands motionless on the touchline.

8:13pm

This place is literally rocking right now, Taylor pulled the ball back and Arfield smashed the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box.

8:13pm

Burnley 1 Chelsea 0: Arfield!

8:12pm

Burnley have made a decent enough start here, Jutkiewicz with a nice piece of play that ended with him firing into the side netting from Taylor's pass.

7:57pm

7:50pm

7:49pm

7:48pm

Chelsea have filled the David Fishwick Stand for this match, which is not bad for a Monday night given the distance involved. With the stadium full we're going to have quite an atmosphere tonight.

7:46pm

Lancashire Telegraph:

Petr Cech on the bench simply highlighting Chelsea's strength in depth..

7:44pm

That Chelsea bench is quite something, Cech, Luis, Zouma, Mikel, Willian, Drogba and Torres. Drogba getting a great reception from the Chelsea fans, it's his first competitive match since his return to the club.

7:43pm

Clarets players returning to the dressing room to warm applause from the crowd and chants of 'Come on Burnley!'.

7:41pm

Nice to see Gary Cahill back at Turf Moor tonight, he had nice words to say about Burnley in the build-up to this game, he loved his spell on loan here right at the start of his career. I think everyone in Burnley is pleased to see how he has progressed from that impressive start, but hopefully he has a tricky time tonight.

7:40pm

Jutkiewicz was always going to start after his form in pre-season, hopefully he can link up with Ings in the same way that Vokes did. Those two could be key in the first half of this season before Vokes returns.

Brave line up going for two up top. Good luck, I say that because we want to send you down next season!!

7:35pm

We're sat in the new extended press box here at Turf Moor and it's absolutely packed, as the press room was downstairs too, somewhat different to the Championship. All eyes are on this game tonight.

7:35pm

7:33pm

A big call by Jose Mourinho leaving out his new left back Filipe Luis, with Cesar Azpilicueta getting the nod instead.

7:31pm

No surprises in the Burnley team, but great for young Cameron Dummigan to get a place on the bench.

7:27pm

Teams are out warming up on the pitch here at Turf Moor as we build up to the 8pm kick-off, atmosphere is building nicely.

Well the tactic of distracting the Chelsea players by making them park the team coach in the dingle directors car park and gaze upon the riches of automobiles worked for the first twelve minutes. Welcome to the premiership boys.

Very sad to report but disquiet has already started after tonight’s defeat for Burnley. One fan is reported to have pinned his season ticket to the manager’s door in protest.

To be fair to him he tried to go back later to retrieve it, only to find that someone had stolen the drawing pin.

Okay. First game, and not a result unexpected. The horse-botherers from down the road enjoying Burnley's loss will have their own loss to enjoy tomorrow night when Norwich tub them.

Chelsea were quietly sublime, the second goal was absolute class! The third goal should not have happened, but did, just a simple tap in.

Fair enough, Burnley are in the Premier league, but remain a Championship side, with Championship play and tactics. They gave Chelsea far too much space to operate, no closing down, and frankly, Burnley looked intimidated by the second goal.

Ings was nowhere to be seen, and pretty much looked out of his depth. Burnley will be spending most of the season in the bottom half of the prem, if not in the bottom three. The spot to go for is the 17th place, and that means putting points on the board.

Within six weeks, the bottom teams will all be playing for that 17th spot, so Burnley are going to have to try to beat the bottom 10 teams, and draw elsewhere when possible.

The crowd were too quiet. No shame at all in losing 1-3 to this particular Chelsea team, they will go on to tear other teams apart this season. Up next is Man Utd, and they will be looking to put some points on the board, and probably will against Burnley. Forget the top seven clubs, focus on those mid-way and below.

Well I thought Burnley did well for 10 minutes then Chelski were superb,I still dont like the way Chelsea played in the second half they did not seem interested in scoring another they were just happy to pass across and back for most of the half.I was even hoping Burnley would score as I hate that type of football and think the Burnley fans have nothing to worry about as I am sure on that showing they are good enough to beat a few sides in the Prem. I thought Ings looked class.
