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.

See the player ratings for this game

Kepa: Made one good save from a cheeky Dwight McNeil free-kick in what was a very comfortable game for him. 6/10

Reece James: He made sure his defensive contribution was good and kept bombarding the Burnley defence from the right flank with some good crosses. Assisted Tammy Abraham with a good cross and was a willing outlet down the right all game. 9/10

Christensen: Good game in defence as he got a rare starting opportunity. Dealt with the physical side of the game and wasn’t found wanting. 7/10

Rudiger: Matched the physical Chris Wood with a strong performance in defence. Good game. 7/10

Azpilicueta: Difficult playing the left wing as a right footer, but he dealt with the challenge pretty well and did well to set up Hudson-Odoi for his goal. 8/10

Jorginho: Controlled the game pretty well from midfield and helped score the first goal from the spot to ease the pressure on the team. 8/10

Barkley: Made a massive defensive clearance in the first-half to save the team and was neat and tidy on the ball in midfield as he combined well with Jorginho. 7/10

Mount: Had a much improved second-half as he linked the Chelsea midfield with the attack. 7/10

Hudson-Odoi: Linked up well with Reece James and was a constant threat especially in the second half when he scored his first Premier League goal. 8/10

Willian: Might not have gotten on the scoresheet but his contribution attacking and defensively can’t be taken for granted. Won the penalty converted by Jorginho. 8/10

Tammy Abraham: Would be disappointed to have scored only one goal but his contribution was immense nevertheless. Played like a proper targetman. 8/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
