‘Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma dominant’ – National media react to Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Burnley


“This was another impressive display [from Ziyech],” writes Alex Richards for the Mirror. “He opened the scoring and caused Burnley problems with the positions he took up and his ability to play passes through the lines.

“Supposedly Timo Werner made a slow start to life at Stamford Bridge. Well, if that was the case, the German is now fully up and running.

“A late call into the lineup due to Pulisic’s injury, the ex-RB Leipzig man made the game safe with the Blues’ third, to seal all three points.”
