Chelsea won their third Premier League’s clash beating newly-promoted Burnley thanks to Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses.
After an easy first half for the Blues, that managed to open the game after just 10′ and showed a good ball possession with great chances to raise up the score, in the second part of the game Burnley tried to turn up and pushed to reduce the gap, but Eden Hazard had two clear chances to score his personal brace.
In the first attempt the Belgium international tried to beat Heaton with a right-footed shot from outside the penalty area, but the ball went wide over the bar, while a few minutes later his powerful low shoot was scrambled by the Clarets‘ goalkeeper. Then striker Diego Costa tried to meet the rebound inside the box but his effort was pushed away by Burnley’s defense.
Before the final whistle Victor Moses scored the 3-0 finalizing a cross thrown in by Chelsea winger Pedro and Cesar Azpilicueta went really close to scoring another late goal in the extra-time, but Heaton was really fast and scrambled the ball with a great dive.
Chelsea won a crucial game and are now leading the Premier League table with 9 points in three games, however Manchester United, Manchester City and Hull City have still a game in hand as they will play tomorrow: well done for the Blues, great start for Antonio Conte.
