It was a good home victory for the Blues against Burnley as goals from Jorginho, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi were enough to beat the Clarets at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea team produced a good home performance for the Blues as Chelsea bounced back from back to back home defeats and also kept a clean sheet in the process.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard revealed that he was pleased with the team’s performance but was disappointed that his side couldn’t take more of their chances.

“It was just what was needed in terms of performance and result,” Lampard said in his post-match media conference.

“The one thing that was obvious to everyone is that we could have scored more goals but at least we did score, and we scored in the first half. A big factor in the recent losses at home was that we had a relative amount of control and didn’t score, everyone got a bit nervous and we conceded.

“Today was different in how it looked because we started positively from minute one, we were so fast in our passing and running off the ball, and the control of the game felt good. We got our goal and it is a big win for us and one we must replicate and realise why. We had a good long week of work on the training ground that helped get that result and performance.

“I am not getting carried away but it feels nice to smile during a game and enjoy what you are watching – positive football with great movement off the ball and getting combinations down the sides and crossing balls a lot. And looking like we are going to score a lot of goals. That is what excites the fans, and I have felt for the fans in recent home games because I understand it is not that exciting when the level and the speed of the game comes down. Today we changed all that.”
