Chelsea Top EPL Table With Dominating Win Over Burnley

By  |  0 Comments

Chelsea continued their perfect start to the season with a comfortable victory over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

The excellent Eden Hazard opened the scoring when he burst forward from halfway early in the first half before finishing low into the corner.

Willian then added a second just before the break with a clinical strike.

Scott Arfield shot wide for Burnley, but substitute Victor Moses wrapped up the win by sliding home a late finish.

Victory means Chelsea are currently top of the table with nine points from three games.

“I am pleased to see the team play well and create a lot of chances. After 13 games where we have conceded at home, we didn’t this time and that is very important. Now we must continue.

“I want Hazard to be decisive at the beginning and I am pleased because I saw this today. However we must continue with his work and the work of the whole team.

“I am pleased to work with these players but if we find a right solution, we want to improve this squad.” Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said.

In a similar vein, the Burnley boss Sean Dyche admitted that Chelsea were a better team.

“They were far too good today. They are too strong in all areas. We want to take on the challenge and I think the lads got too sucked in with the result from last week.

“We did not use the ball at all. There were too many sloppy passes and you just cannot do that against teams like this one.

“They were never in trouble, but we have to learn from these games. This is not really our market, there is a big gap from where they are and where we are.

“We were not close to getting a result today.” Sean Dyche
