For the second week running the Clarets found a Premier League title challenger packing too much of a punch as Chelsea left Turf Moor with their unbeaten record this season intact. 

 Nine goals conceded in two games has done little for Burnley’s goal difference as the gulf in status between the powerhouses of the division and the rest was again laid bare.

 A first-half goal from Alvaro Morata and second-half strikes from a revitalised Ross Barkley, Willian and substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek were enough for Chelsea to cruise to a fourth away win in five this season.

 Burnley were unable to lay a glove on opponents who have been rejuvenated by Manager Maurizio Sarri.

 And Sean Dyche’s men must now dust themselves down for more manageable battles to come as they hit the road to face West Ham and Leicester City in search of points ahead of the next international break.

 Robbie Brady’s first Premier League appearance since December was a welcome sight in the only change to the Clarets’ side that had lost at Manchester City last time out as Aaron Lennon dropped out of the squad through illness.

 And the wingman, whose full debut for Burnley had brought him a spectacular equalising goal against Chelsea in January, 2017, was heavily involved in a bright start from the Clarets.
