Burnley vs Chelsea Full Match Reports

Chelsea’s upward trajectory continued with a 4-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor – a venue they are certainly familiar with winning as it was their eighth in nine visits to the Premier League (PL). .

Clearly brimming with confidence after two consecutive wins, Chelsea started strongly but unfortunately couldn’t take an early lead when Raheem Sterling fired a fierce shot just wide of the post. This season their luck was such that they regretted this missed opportunity just seconds later. Since the restart, Burnley have progressed well, with Wilson Odobert scoring another goal after excellent work from Lyle Foster in the build-up.

Sterling was Chelsea’s main spark throughout the match, and it was England’s forgotten man who almost sealed the score 10 minutes before the break. After receiving the ball in a good position on the left flank, he advanced into the heart of the Clarets defense but could only fire a shot straight at James Trafford. Burnley certainly didn’t heed the warning, and with a little help from Ameen Al-Dakhil’s deflected pass, their effort found the back of the net just before the break.

Despite some sage advice at half-time from Premier League Hall of Fame defender Vincent Kompany, Burnley simply couldn’t defend against Sterling. And he was involved again minutes after the restart when he was fouled by Vitinho in the box, with Cole Palmer confidently taking the penalty. Sterling probably couldn’t believe his luck today, and it was finally his turn on the scoresheet when Connor Gallagher fed him the ball across goal and his left-footed shot found the bottom corner. goal.

Burnley’s penalty wasn’t taken there either, as goalkeeper Nicolas Jackson came on to score just his second PL goal for the club. It was another punishing day for the Clarets, who are conceding goals at an alarming rate at home, as Kompany became the first PL coach to lose his first five home games in charge. It was a much more positive day for Mauricio Pochettino, who claimed his 36th win against a newly promoted side in 42 attempts.
