Impressive Chelsea See Off Burnley

Chelsea got their Premier League campaign off to a flying start with a 3-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday night.
 
Mourinho gave Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas their debuts for the Blues' in the win that saw them shoot to the top of the league standings.
 
The home side took the lead after 14 minutes of play, as Scott Arfield was picked out on the edge of the area, an rifled the ball past the Thibaut Courtios.
 
Less than three minutes later and the Blues were level, as Diego Costa blasted home from 12-yards out, after Branislav Ivanovic's cross had deflected onto the upright.
 
Burnley were struggling to deal with the Chelsea attack, and the Blues went ahead in the 21st minute, as brilliant passing move saw Cesc Fabregas, with a delightful pass, set up Andre Schurrle, who slotted past Tom Heaton.
 
Chelsea then increased their advantage in the 34th minute, as an un-marked Ivanovic tapped home from six-yards out, after getting on the end on Fabregas' corner.
 
Arfield came close to reducing Chelsea's lead minutes after the halftime break, but his left-footed curling effort forced Courtois into a fine finger tip save.
 
Didier Drogba was brought on midway through the second half for his second Blues' debut and came close to getting a debut goal, as he volleyed just wide of the upright, after collecting a long ball from Courtois.
 
The home side failed to create any chances in the latter stages of the half, as Chelsea held on for a comfortable win.
