A mixed start to the season after a pharaonic transfer window, it does not forgive the side of the tabloids and English consultants, who began to question Frank Lampard’s project at Chelsea. With only 2 successes in 6 outings, the London club, who remained on 2 draws against Southampton and Manchester United at the start of this meeting, wanted to regain the victory in the league at the expense of Burnley this Saturday. Mission accomplished for Olivier Giroud’s teammates. And like in the Champions League in midweek, the Blues can thank their recruits. So, it was Hakim Ziyech who opened the scoring for the visitors in the 26th minute with a sudden strike from the left, following a surrender from Tammy Abraham back to goal. What unblock the situation in this meeting. 1-0, the score at rest.

Despite this first goal from Ziyech in the Premier League, Burnley remained on the lookout in the second half and the Blues had to take cover. This is what Lampard’s men managed to do on the hour mark, when Zouma put in a nice winning kick on a Mount corner. The Blues were not satisfied so far and 20 minutes from the end, they sealed the fate of the match by Werner with a flat right foot following a caviar from Ziyech for a 100% rookie goal. Werner’s third in the Premier League this season. Dominators until the end against a limited opponent, the Blues were not going to succeed in increasing the score. 3-0, final score against a formation of Burnley not really transcendent. Chelsea wins and finally convinces largely thanks to his summer armada, with a gala Ziyech. Are the Blues finally launched? Response in the next few weeks, but the lights seem green.
