It was an occasionally bad tempered clash at Stamford Bridge, with the Chelsea bench regularly up in arms at decisions they perceived as going against them, but Dyche played down any conflict, insisting it's an "emotional sport".
The composure of the Chelsea players disappeared for the remainder of a half that will not be quickly forgotten.
"We scored three good goals and I think when you are talking about who you are playing against and where you are playing, that's up there as one of the best 45 minutes of my time here", said the manager, who joined Burnley in 2012.
Keown has claimed that Chelsea have "some very real problems" amid speculation that head coach Antonio Conte is frustrated with his team's work in the transfer market this summer.
The Chelsea team sheet did have an air of points being made, shoulders shrugged towards the directors' tier.
Jeremie Boga, a 20-year-old French forward, was even given a debut. Antonio Rüdiger played on the left of the central three in defence.
Vokes then grabbed his brace and the third for Sean Dyche's men when he headed in the ball from a Defour cross two minutes before the half time break. And Burnley were hugely impressive here, starting in a rush and pressing hard and high up the pitch. His roaming run into the opposition half, perhaps an attempt to grab the game by the scruff of the neck, was fine, but his lunging tackle into Defour was clumsy and unsafe and left the referee with no option but to send him off. Precedents suggest it was fair, although it was by no means a vicious foul.
Soon after, Vokes had a goal called offside.
Burnley went for the fourth goal but the post kept out a 90th minute freekick as the defending champions sought an equaliser. Lowton advanced unimpeded down the right and floated in a cross that was missed by David Luiz.
He brushed aside questions about reported tension with Chelsea's board over signing new players and said he was not anxious because three key players - Eden Hazard, Pedro and Victor Moses - could return from injury and suspension for Chelsea's next game against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Burnley striker Sam Vokes admits that the 3-2 win over Chelsea is a huge result for the club after struggling on the road last season. At least, this seems to be the case quite often when David Luiz is involved.
"They had to respond, which they did, so credit to them, but we were disappointed with the two goals".
The Blues forced goalkeeper Tom Heaton into a couple of smart saves, in a hope of regaining a foothold in the match.
The Blues didn't come pouring out of the gates, either, though the hour mark saw a decent chance and shouts for a penalty as Burnley got extra chippy.
