Chelsea smash Burnley’s forts by four on record day


Chelsea beat Burnley with four goals without a response in the 28th week of the English Premier League.

The match witnessed Reese James’ participation in the Premier League for the first time since December 29

On the other hand, Burnley captain Ben Mei was absent due to the injury that left him out of the last Leicester City match.

After a negative first half, Reese James broke the silence after a pass from Chalubah and dribbled the Burnley defense with the 47th minute.

5 minutes later, Havertz expanded the score with the second goal from a header after a cross from Christian Pulisic.

The Champions League final man returned again to add the third goal in the 55th minute after a cross from Reece James.

The double is Havertz’s first with Chelsea away from home.

The hat-trick in the first 10 minutes of the second half is the first in the Premier League since Manchester City’s hat-trick against Newcastle in 2015.

Christian Pulisic added the fourth goal in the 69th minute, taking advantage of a mistake by James Tarkovsky.

Pulisic’s goal is his fourth at Turf Moor as the player to score the most against Burnley on this field, equal to Harry Kane.

The win raised Chelsea’s score to 53 points in third place, and Burnley’s balance stopped at 21 points in 18th place.
