Chelsea 3 Burnley 0

The Clarets again found facing top-six opposition too big a gap to ‘Bridge’ as the 100th meeting between the sides went Chelsea’s way.

 The build-up to the century has often gone well for the Clarets on their recent trips to West London and another positive result would have been a welcome way to end a three-game losing run in the Premier League.

 But once a desperately tight VAR decision had denied Sean Dyche’s side a possible opening goal, Chelsea got their noses in front from the penalty spot and never looked back.

 A depleted Burnley line-up didn’t throw in the towel but the habit of conceding soft goals to the division’s leading lights again proved costly.
 
And with Chelsea adding further goals from England youngsters Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi either side of the break they enhanced their Champions League qualification hopes to leave the Clarets more concerned with the other end of the table.

 With illness and injury in the camp, the Clarets were forced into a change of personnel and shape.

 Ashley Barnes’ absence with an on-going groin problem was compounded by illness to Jay Rodriguez, which left Chris Wood as the lone striker and the returning Jeff Hendrick behind him for support.

 Hendrick scored the Clarets’ goal of the season here last season as Burnley secured the point that guaranteed their Premier League survival.

 And the Irish international was unfortunate not to put the Clarets ahead again when he had the ball in the net at the same end of Stamford Bridge.

Thought we were given rough treatment meant by Var today.. We aren't good enough though.. Things must improve soon or its back to the Chumpionship again.. Maybe that's what the board wants ?

Lampard and Lineker thought Chelsea were WELL worthy winners, I thought - offside goal, very close call - first goal, looked like Willian had lost the ball and it was going to be a goal kick but there was contact so penalty probably right call - block on line and goalmouth scramble denying Burnley an equaliser - second goal, looked like a push on Tarks but Pope should have done better - third, was there a headflick? Chelsea looked the better side, but there were a few close calls and didn’t look like the emphatic win Lampard claimed to me.
