Christian Pulisic denoted his first association start since August with a cap stunt as Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 at Turf Moor.
The Blues owed their seventh straight success in all rivalries to the American’s clinical completing; first, he bamboozled James Tarkowski to open the scoring (21) with his left foot before including a second just before half-time with a right-foot shot which avoided off Ben Mee and past Nick Pope.
Christian Pulisic fixed an ideal cap stunt after the break when he gestured Mason Mount’s corner past Pope (56). Chelsea looked in threat of going crazy when Willian included a fourth two minutes after the fact.

The guests showed up liable to make it five when Callum Hudson-Odoi was granted a punishment. Yet a VAR survey toppled the choice and the substitute was reserved. This appeared to go about as a sign for the Blues to ease up on their power.
They gave Burnley a hint of something to look forward to out of the blue late on, with Jay Rodriguez’s shocker. In addition, Dwight McNeil’s avoided exertion (89) giving the hosts something to grin about. Yet it was Chelsea radiating at full-time as they moved level with third-set Leicester on 20.
Burnley’s heads had dropped and Chelsea exploited, including a quickfire fourth when Willian floated in off the privilege. Also, he beat Pope at his close to post.
Chelsea looked liable to make it five when Hudson-Odoi went down in the crate under strain from Tarkowski. However, be that as it may, after a VAR audit, Michael Oliver’s choice to grant a punishment was upset. The substitute reserved for reproduction.
Maybe with carelessness setting in, the Blues at that point dropped their force and, with Rodriguez looking for a relief late on, neglected to follow his go through midfield enabling him to lash the ball past Kepa from 30 yards with a shocking completion.
In the event that Rodriguez’s first association objective at Turf Moor since his mid-year return got Burnley fans cheering. They were off their seats when McNeil beat Kepa from a comparative separation with an avoided exertion. Therefore, again in the wake of being permitted to run unchecked towards the guests’ backline.
Be that as it may, the harm was at that point done by Lampard’s men, who guaranteed they will end the end of the week, at any rate, two clear inside the best four, and trailing Leicester just on objective contrast after the Foxes’ record-breaking 9-0 win at Southampton on Friday night.
