Chelsea defeated Burnley 3-0 as goals from Jorginho, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi were enough to seal a home victory for the Blues.

Lampard did a surprising thing in this game as for the first time this season he didn’t make a change to the starting line-up. Every starting player played 90 minutes in this game.

Interestingly, this is the first time this has happened for the first time since Chelsea’s Europa League final in 2013, thus ending a run of 366 games.

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante missed this game through a hamstring injury with Ross Barkley coming on for him.

Explaining Kante’s absence, Lampard told Sky Sports before the game: “He’s reported some feeling in his hamstring yesterday after training.

“We have him overnight to see how it was, it wasn’t good enough this morning so not good enough to play.

“Though these things always give an opportunity you don’t want them because we’re missing good players.

“N’Golo… everyone knows how important he is for us. But not worth the risk in any way but opens the door for Ross Barkley at this point to come in and play.”
