Burnley boss Sean Dyche has called on his players to cause an upset against Chelsea in their Premier League opener on Monday.

The Clarets, who finished as runners-up in the Championship table last season, welcome Jose Mourinho's side to Turf Moor tomorrow night.

While the hosts head into the match as underdogs, Dyche believes that his team are capable of causing a shock versus one of the title favourites.

"Never say never. Was it Cardiff who got three points off Manchester City early last season? I don't think many would have been expecting that," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"There are no guarantees in any division in any season, let alone the Premier League, so we have to earn the right and fight hard to get what we can off anyone."

Dyche recently revealed that he hopes to sign "two or three" more players before the end of the summer transfer window.
