Chelsea got a 3-0 win against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. And while it was a comfortable home victory for the Blues, there was a scary moment in the game that could have changed the dynamics of the match.

A first-half goal from Jeff Hendrick was ruled out by the tightest of VAR offside decisions with the scores at 0-0 and then Chelsea went on to win the game 3-0.

Goals from Jorginho, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi sealed the win for Chelsea at the Bridge.

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Sean Dyche has argued that Tammy Abraham’s goal shouldn’t have stood, insisting that the Chelsea striker committed a foul on his defender.

The Burnley manager said: “I’m a little aggrieved by the second goal because Tarky has two arms in his back from their centre forward, who then scores.

“Popey should inevitably save it, and he will be disappointed with that, but at the end of the day that’s a foul.

“Unfortunately though, we are having a run of making mistakes at the moment and getting punished for them.

“We have to eradicate them, to be sure. You definitely can’t give soft goals to teams like this.”
