Frame-By-Frame: Stephen Ward Scores Incredible Early Goal Of The Season Contender

Coming into the new season as champions, Chelsea's prospective attacking problems had one silver lining: their defense would be undoubtedly solid.

It didn't take Gary Cahill long to disturb this notion. Sent off after 14 minutes, Burnley have taken advantage of this deficit in a rapid manner.

Sam Vokes put Burnley up 1- after 24 minutes. 15 minutes later: up stepped Stephen Ward to make it 2-0.

Breaking into the box from the left, Ward controls a lofted pass on his chest before smashing an effort beyond Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois.

An absolutely marvelous effort from the Irish full-back, Burnley were 3-0 ahead of Chelsea at half-time.
