The blues were solid and outstanding as they defeated Burnley.
Superb finishes from Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso gave Thomas Tuchel his first victory as Chelsea head coach against a weaker-side Burnley.
Captain Azpilicueta – the captain of the team – drilled Callum Hudson-Odoi’s lay-off high past Nick Pope to give the first goal for the Blues.
Azpilicueta’s fellow Spanish defender Alonso added a Brilliant second late on, skilfully controlling a Christian Pulisic cross before laying a volley over Pope at his near post to give the second goal at Stamford bridge.
Impressive Hudson-Odoi was unlucky not to score in between with a shot that was deflected on to a post by Burnley defender Erik Pieters.
Chelsea comfortably registered a second successive clean sheet under Tuchel, whose first game was the midweek goalless draw with Wolves, as Burnley was unlucky enough not to record a shot-on-target
The only setback for Tuchel was Timo Werner’s failure to score for a 12th league game as Chelsea climbed three places to secure seventh in the league table, while Burnley endures 15th.
