Chelsea produced a good display to defeat Burnley 4-0 at the Turf Moor in what is our biggest win at the Turf Moor ground.

The Chelsea players were on fire for this game and it was another dominant Blues performance as Sarri’s men went ten games without tasting defeat in the Premier League.

However, it was a bad day away from home for Pedro, as he was taken off on the half-hour mark for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

After the game, Sarri revealed that Pedro was taken off due to illness.

Sarri said: “‘I spoke with the doctor for a few seconds. He said it was a very strong stomach ache.”

Pedro had only recently just returned from injury, and he’d be sad to have missed the rest of the game in such circumstances.

However, his international teammate Alvaro Morata continued his scoring run as he scored the opener against Burnley.

Sarri said of Morata’s performance: “Alvaro today played well. He went to the ball when it was necessary. He went deep when it was necessary. He played a very good game.

“Probably he could have scored more, he had three or four opportunities, but he scored a good goal. The last three or four matches can be a good restart for him.”
