Less than 30 minutes to Kick-off at Stamford Bridge as we digest that last gasp equaliser from Watford against Liverpool, its fair to say this has been some start to this brand new Premier League season.

Good evening from all around the world. I'll be providing live-text coverage for the next couple of hours as Champions Chelsea welcome Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Early team news from Stamford Bridge. Chelsea fresh from that defeat at Wembley in the Community Shield will look to clinch their first win of the season and have named their 70m signing from Real, Alvaro Morata on the bench yet again.

Victor Moses is suspended for the Champions, but the big misses are Eden Hazard and Tiemoue Bakayoko, the latter having joined from Monaco, both nursing injuries.

This is how The Clarets will line up

Pedro who is of course sidelined by an ankle injury is joined by Hazard in presenting the Premier League trophy at the stadium as both teams are about to make their bow.

From the Diego Costa saga, missing out on Lukaku, selling Matic to United and leaving Conte bemused. Chelsea are looking to win back-to-back PL titles for the first time in 9 years, but they have to contend with the small matter of beating Burnley this afternoon. Should be interesting.


02' Chelsea playing it around nicely from the back, but Alonso loses the ball and is late in a tackle. Free kick Burnley...

03' from the resulting free kick, Ben Mee's header is straight to the hands of Courtois.
