Burnley vs. Chelsea

Burnley and Chelsea will be the last two Premier League teams to open their 2014/15 campaigns when the Blues travel to Turf Moor on Monday to take on Burnley. 

Chelsea is one of the favorites to take home the Premier League title this season, thanks to a busy offseason headlined by big name signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. The Blues nearly won the Premier League last season, finishing in third behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
