Chelsea’s winning run continued during the weekend as the Blues got a massive victory against Burnley at the Turf Moor.

It was expected to be a difficult game for Chelsea, but Frank Lampard’s side were just too good for the home team.

A Christian Pulisic hat-trick and Willian goal had given Chelsea a 4-0 lead by the hour mark, but two late goals from Ray Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil in the 86th and 89th minute were consolation goals for Burnley.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has been having a good season, and he has now revealed that he was disappointed with the two goals conceded.

“Especially as we were controlling the game,” he revealed, “but to be fair to him, it was a good strike. Be we wanted to see the game out, score more goals if we could and see the game out with a clean sheet and go home happy.

“A score of 4-0 looks a lot better than 4-2 and as defenders, our job it is to keep clean sheets and for the most part of the game we were looking at doing that and to concede two late on, it gave Burnley an extra bit of gusto when we should have been comfortably seeing out the game. But it is still a positive result and three points.”
