After falling behind, goals from Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer, and Nicolas Jackson gave the Blues the victory.
Wilson Odobert’s early goal for the Clarets made it a challenging first half for the Blues, as the entire Chelsea backline did not fare well.
However, Sterling made his presence known before the half, moving into the box to unleash a cross that Ameen Al-Dakhil deflected into the goal.
After the break, Sterling once more showed to be a threat. When Vitinho fouled the winger, the penalty was quickly won by the winger, who confidently converted it.
Further proving to be a thorn in Burnley’s side, the English winger finished Conor Gallagher’s pass before crossing for Palmer, who then found Jackson to calmly complete the fourth.
