Debutants shine as Chelsea win at Burnley

Diego Costa marked his Chelsea FC debut with a goal as the Blues quickly recovered from going 1-0 down to sweep aside promoted Burnley FC 3-1 at Turf Moor.

• Scott Arfield gave promoted Burnley FC a dream start as he beat Chelsea FC debutant Thibaut Courtois – preferred to Petr Čech – with a composed finish following a corner.

• The lead lasted just four minutes as Diego Costa marked his own bow for the Blues with a goal, pouncing after Branislav Ivanović hit the upright.

• Four minutes later it was 2-1 to Chelsea after the third debutant in the Londoners' starting XI, Cesc Fàbregas, teed up Germany striker André Schürrle.

• Ivanović made it 3-1 before half-time and that is how it ended, though substitute Didier Drogba was a whisker away from adding a late fourth.
