Premier League round-up: Nine-man Chelsea stunned by Burnley, Rooney the hero for Everton

A second yellow card for Cesc Fabregas in the 81st minute of the game led to his being sent off.

The Blues'captain Gary Cahill was shown a straight red card in the 13th minute for a lunge on Steven Defour.

Sadio Mane hit back on 29 minutes, but Liverpool's defensive weaknesses were exposed again as Abdoulaye Doucoure slotted in for 2-1. Boga, an exciting talent, had little time to make any sort of impact before becoming the unfortunate collateral damage of Cahill's early red, sacrificed for Andreas Christensen in the 18th minute.

But they were ahead after 23 minutes when Palace failed to deal with an Aaron Mooy corner and the ball deflected in off Joel Ward - and with Palace rocking Mooy crossed again and Steve Mounie headed home. Burnley may not be a sustainable Premier League club in the long term, but Dyche is a highly competent top-flight coach, more motivated than most by the desire to overcome the odds and confound his critics.

"First half better, second half not as well, but they're a good side - their physicality, they're a strong side, they press high, fast, and it can put you off kilter".

"We tried to keep the ball second half and contain them, but they're a fine side, they threw caution to the wind because they had nothing to lose".

Jermain Defoe came off the bench having not been deemed fit enough to start for Bournemouth, but not even the Cherries' new goal machine could salvage anything for Eddie Howe's side who go home disappointed.

Southampton suffered a frustrating afternoon as they were held 0-0 at home by Swansea City.

The Hornet twice led in this six-goal thriller, opening the scoring through Italian striker Stefano Okaka's header, only for Sadio Mane to draw the visitors level on the half-hour mark.

From then on, the Clarets took complete control of the game and went three goals up.
