Burnley 2 Chelsea 4

A Jay Rodriguez thunderbolt and Dwight McNeil’s first goal of the season saw the Clarets at least finish with a flourish on a dramatic night at Turf Moor.

 Chelsea continued their winning streak under Frank Lampard as they chalked up a seventh successive victory in all competitions to stay firmly in the Premier League’s top four.

 But Sean Dyche’s men were spared a repeat of the 4-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of the Blues 12 months ago by two goals inside the last five minutes.

 By then the damage had been done – largely self-inflicted as the Clarets were culpable in allowing Christian Pulisic to claim his first hat-trick in English football.

 A second home defeat of the season extended Burnley’s frustrating record against established top-six opponents as Chelsea followed Liverpool in leaving with maximum points on what threatened to be a chastening evening.

 Rodriguez’s long-range effort and McNeil’s deflected strike didn’t quite paper over the cracks as the Clarets came up short in both penalty areas.

 But the sniff of an improbable comeback and a late show of character at least rattled the Blues and gave the home supporters some late cheer as Burnley slipped into the bottom half of the table.

 The Clarets had made two changes to the side controversially denied at Leicester a week earlier as their unbeaten four-game run was ended.

A bit of an anomaly, nothing more than that.

Only caught a bit of the highlights and Chelsea looked to dominate much of the game but THE HIGHLIGHT was JayRods strike, absolute cracker.
