Chelsea player ratings vs Burnley: Reece James excellent, Willian leading by example

It was back to winning ways in the Premier League for Chelsea on Saturday, as they recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

A 26th minute penalty from Jorginho was followed by strikes from Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi as the Blues picked up their first three points of 2020.

Abraham’s goal was his 13th of the season, while Hudson-Odoi rounded off the scoring by registering his first goal in the Premier League, and his first goal of the season in all competitions.

Chelsea now have a week to prepare for the next challenge as they travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle in their next Premier League outing.
