Chelsea stormed to a 4-0 win at Burnley on Saturday afternoon as they continue to put last weekend’s defeat in the Carabao Cup final behind them.
The west London club booked their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup on Wednesday and strengthened their hold on third spot in the Premier League with victory at Turf Moor.
Thomas Tuchel and Kai Havertz claimed that Chelsea showed their character in bouncing back from their cup final heartache to win their following two fixtures.
However, their triumph at Turf Moor was somewhat over shadowed by sections of the away fans chanting Roman Abramovich’s name during the pre-match show of support for Ukraine.
Havertz and Tuchel agree after thumping win
The Blues bounced back from last weekend’s League Cup heartbreak and put an unconvincing FA Cup win at Luton behind them.
The two sides played out a cagey opening 45 minutes that actually saw Sean Dyche’s men boast the better of the chances, only for wasteful finishing to keep the scores level.
But following the restart, three Chelsea goals inside 10 minutes put the game beyond any doubt, as Reece James’ opener was quickly met with a three-minute brace from Havertz.
Christian Pulisic was gifted a fourth just under 15 minutes later when James Tarkowski’s attempted interception fell kindly into the path of the United States international who lashed home with just Nick Pope to beat.
