Chelsea hammer Burnley
Chelsea played host to Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues do not boast the best record at Stamford Bridge this term with Frank Lampard’s side already losing to the likes of Southampton, Bournemouth and West Ham at home.
However, Saturday’s clash with the Clarets produced a very different result to the aforementioned ties.
Jorginho would open the scoring for the London outfit 27 minutes in from the penalty spot.
Tammy Abraham’s goalscoring exploits then continued vs Sean Dyche’s side, with the England international adding his 13th league goal of the season shortly before the interval.
Callum Hudson-Odoi then put the result beyond doubt four minutes after the break.
Highlights: Chelsea 3-Burnley 0Lampard on Kante
While Saturday’s result was a positive one for Chelsea, the Blues did suffer one blow prior to kick-off.
N’Golo Kante missed the Burnley clash with Chelsea confirming the midfielder picked up a hamstring issue in training on Friday.

After their emphatic victory over Burnley, Frank Lampard would provide an update on the Frenchman.
Lampard stated it was more of an awareness in Kante’s hamstring, rather than him having to pull up in training on Friday, with the Chelsea boss hopeful it is a small issue:
“He got through training yesterday but it was something that came up last night and then we made a decision this morning.
“It was more of an awareness in the hamstring, as opposed to a moment he had to pull up, so that makes you hope it is a small thing but we will have to see how it goes.” As quoted by Chelsea’s official website.
