by Soumadeep Bagchi

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea scored four unanswered goals in the second half to earn a comfortable win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Chelsea made it three successive league wins for the first time since October, with a flurry of goals at the start of the second half making the difference against a Burnley

Burnley had the best first-half chances, with Thiago Silva forced to clear a shot from Wout Weghorst off the line.

Reece James put Chelsea in front two minutes after the break, showing great skill before finishing from a tight angle.

Chelsea then scored twice in quick succession through Kai Havertz, who headed in a Christian Pulisic cross, before converting a centre from James.

Pulisic struck a fourth on 69 minutes, thumping in after defender James Tarkowski had diverted the ball into his path.

Chelsea stay third on 53 points while Burnley remain 18th on 21 points, one off safety.

Burnley coach Sean Dyche said ,“One goal affected us massively which is unusual for us, we lost our shape and all the good things that we did in the first-half, and there were a lot of them.

We could have been 1-0 up at half-time, it was a very positive and pleasing display but in the second-half, it wasn’t that we didn’t come out well, we conceded a soft goal and then that affected us, and against these sides you can’t show any cracks in what you are doing as they capitalise and they did.”

After the match Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel said, ‘We just reminded everybody what we wanted to do, where the spaces were and where we want to find the acceleration. Where we needed to step up was clearly up front. We needed to ask more questions and make life more difficult for the back four.”
