Mark Clattenburg says Gary Cahill was wrongly sent off against Burnley

Stephen Ward has penned a fresh two-year deal with Burnley to cap a few days to remember for the 31-year-old defender.

The former Bohemians ace was thrilled with his contract, saying: "I'm delighted to have signed".

Just 14 minutes into his first Premier League match as Chelsea's club captain, Gary Cahill paid a touching tribute to predecessor John Terry by being a dick and getting himself sent off.

He was part of the side that won promotion from the Championship the previous season.

"I've not scored many like that in my career".

Cesar Azpilicueta switches to right wing-back, with Victor Moses suspended following his red card in last season's FA Cup final.


Twelve months ago the Clarets seemed to have pulled off a significant coup when they signed Defour, who was once admired by Manchester United, from Anderlecht upon their return to the top flight.

The Clarets, stacked with Ireland internationals under Sean Dyche, are playing Premier League champions Chelsea, and have started superbly, going into a 3-0 lead against the Pensioners.

Ward continued his run and Cork played a perfectly-weighted pass over the head of N'Golo Kante and Ward took a superb first touch on his chest to take himself away from the midfielder and tee himself up.

'We know he can play, his ball for the goal is absolutely fantastic, so we know that.

"I think Gary Cahill is very unlucky".
