Manchester City kicked off their Premier League season with a 2-0 away victory over newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for Manchester City in the 70th minute.

The Citizens doubled their lead just five minutes later when Brighton's Lewis Dunk scored an own-goal.

Earlier on Saturday, Burnley had stunned defending champions Chelsea 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea, who finished the game with nine men after Gary Cahill and later Cesc Fabregas were sent off, were 3-0 down at half time before pulling two back through David Luiz and new signing Alvaro Morata late in the second half.

The Spaniard had a goal disallowed for offside in the closing stages as Chelsea pushed for an unlikely equalizer.

Newly promoted Huddersfield Town finished the day on top of the league table on goal difference after their shock 3-0 away victory over Crystal Palace, who were playing their first competitive game under new manager Frank de Boer.

Wayne Rooney scored the game's only goal against Stoke City in his first game for Everton since returning to the club he left 13 years ago to sign for Manchester United.
