Chelsea’s 4-2 victory over Burnley was the seventh consecutive game Chelsea have won in all competitions, and besides the victory, the performance of the team was top notch.

Christian Pulisic was the star of the show as he bagged a hat-trick to help Chelsea get the massive three points at the Turf Moor.

Despite the star performance of Pulisic, two Chelsea players also caught the eye with their displays. Chelsea midfielders Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho have both been impressive for Chelsea in the middle of the park this season and the duo are beginning to understand each other perfectly.

Against Burnley, Jorginho and Kovacic were at the heart of everything in midfield as they complemented each other brilliantly.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard hailed the duo after the game, but it isn’t only the Chelsea manager who was impressed as former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas hailed their performance.

“They completely ran the show, they dictated the pace of the game – when to attack or when to slow the game down,” the former England and Tottenham midfielder said on Match of the Day.

“Simple passes but effective. They were both in the hundreds with regards to touches made, 90 per cent in terms of accuracy of passes and, actually, it was the regaining of passes that was big as well. They’ve passed the ball to each other more than any other midfield pairing this season.

“They really had a huge impact on this game in particular. Kovacic took over in the second half, winning the ball.

“Has he got the composure to find the man? Yes he has.

“Can you get tight to him? No you can’t because he’s too tricky. He’s a top player.

“Maybe Frank’s given him a bit more freedom but today – the both of them – they look like the real mature heads in that team and they were fantastic.”
