EPL: Burnley stun Chelsea, Rooney fires Everton to victory

Sam Vokes scored twice as Burnley stunned Premier League champions Chelsea with a 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge on the opening weekend of the new campaign.

Chelsea, who had club captain Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas sent off, trailed 3-0 at the interval, and despite finding a route back into the match in the second period, Burnley held on for their first ever Premier League victory at Chelsea.

Wayne Rooney has enjoyed a dream Everton comeback by netting the winner during a 1-0 victory over Stoke City in their first match of the new Premier League season.

Manchester City were made to work hard for a 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in their opening game of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

The Citizens failed to break their newly-promoted opponents down in the opening three-quarters of the match, but a Sergio Aguero strike and Lewis Dunk own goal in the remainder got them over the line.
