      Chelsea maintain their 100% record this season as goals from Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses secure the win. The Blues outclassed Burnley from start to finish and deserved their win to go top of the Premier League for now. The Clarets will be disappointed by their efforts this afternoon, but t

    • 0'
      Well the build-up is over as the players are making their way out on to the pitch at Stamford Bridge. Therefore we should be underway very shortly.
    • 0'
      As a result, Dyche has been able to name the same starting line-up from the team that beat Liverpool at Turf Moor last week. Gray and Vokes continue to lead the line in a 4-4-2 system, with the Clarets showing their intent to attack the Blues when possible.
    • 0'
      Burnley also made several alterations to their line-up during the week in their surprising defeat to Accrington Stanley. The loss in the competition may not be the worst result for the Clarets given their small squad, allowing Dyche to keep his key men fit for their survival push.
    • 0'
      After making several changes for the EFL Cup clash against Bristol Rovers, Conte has reverted back to almost the same side that beat Watford in Chelsea's last Premier League outing. Only Pedro drops out of the starting line-up from Vicarage Road, with Willian taking his place on the right flank.

      He will be hopeful that the Clarets can continue to defy the odds this afternoon by holding out against another potent attack, while looking for Andre Gray and Simon Vokes to fire once again in the final third.
    • 0'
      Burnley will aim to disrupt Chelsea's flow today after their stunning victory over Liverpool last week. Sean Dyche's men got off the mark in style with a clinical display in front of goal, scoring with their only two shots on target.
    • 0'
      Conte will be satisfied with the club's start to the campaign, but he will want them to improve at the back to emulate the success of his Juventus sides, who were extremely stoic in front of their own net. The Italian will be targeting the first clean sheet of the season this afternoon.
    • 0'
      Chelsea are well with the pacesetters Manchester United and Manchester City at the top of the league after the two matches, although they were forced to come from behind to beat Watford in the last top-flight outing. Late goals from Michy Batshuayi and Diego Costa snatched the three points for Conte
    • 0'
      Antonio Conte has enjoyed his early taste of English football as his side have recorded three wins on the bounce in their competitive fixtures under the Italian's tenure thus far. The Blues have recorded two victories in the Premier League over West Ham and Watford, and overcame a spirited Bristol R

    • 1'
      We're underway at Stamford Bridge.
    • 3'

    • 4'
      Neat passing from Burnley at the back before Marney decides to send a long ball forward, aiming to get behind Cahill, but the defender covers well by heading to Kante.
    • 6'
      Fearless football from the Clarets as they take the game to Chelsea in the final third. Boyd and Arfield combine down the left and the latter attempts to drive an effort across the face of goal, but the Blues clear their lines.
    • 8'
      Diego Costa manages to bundle the ball past Boyd on the edge of the box and it runs towards Hazard. However, the Belgian cannot bring the ball under control as he spins towards the byline, and Heaton races off his line to smother at the feet of Costa.

    • 9'
      Matic releases the run of Hazard before the Belgian does the rest with a fine effort.

    • 11'
      Chelsea keep the pressure on from a corner, and despite the ball bouncing around the six-yard box the Blues are unable to add to the scoreline. All hands on deck for the visitors at the back.
    • 13'
      Kante springs Chelsea forward by winning the ball back from Marney, but Costa loses his footing inside the box allowing Burnley to get men back behind the ball.
    • 14'
      OFF THE LINE! Kante switches the play before Willian carves open the Burnley defence with a neat throughball for Ivanovic. The right-back blasts the ball across the face of goal, but no blue shirt can convert. Hazard collects on the left and fires towards the bottom corner, but Mee is there to diver
    • 15'
      CHANCE! From the resulting corner Burnley clear their lines only as far as Cahill on the penalty spot. The defender blasts an effort towards the net, but a number of Claret shirts form a wall to block his strike wide of the post.
    • 17'
      Hazard picks out the run of Costa with a peach of a pass from right to left. The striker tries to take the ball in stride, but he loses his footing at the vital moment, allowing Keane to win back possession for Dyche's men.
    • 19'
      Chelsea are in complete control of this match at the moment, Burnley cannot get near them in possession. Dyche will have to hope that his side can display resilience at the back to hold out as a second goal could kill off the game.
    • 21'
      It's wave after wave of Chelsea attacks coming at the Burnley backline. Costa almost breaks into the channel down the left, but Keane does well to track his run and prevent the strike.
    • 23'
      Lowton's turn to make an important block for Burnley as he gets back to stop Hazard's cross from finding Costa in the penalty area. Willian had picked out the Belgian with a sublime cross-field pass to start the move.
    • 25'
      Hazard releases the run of Azpilicueta into the left inside channel, but the Spaniard sends his cross behind Costa, allowing the visitors to scramble the ball clear.
    • 27'

    • 29'
      Solid defensive work from Burnley as the home side work the ball from left to right. Ward keeps his discipline to force Willian inside and into a crowd of players where the Clarets win back possession.
    • 31'
      Dyche will be pleased that his side have managed to hold out under a spell of extreme pressure. Chelsea have just backed off over the past two minutes, alleviating the stress on Keane and Mee.
    • 31'
      Oscar heads into the book for a loose challenge.
    • 32'
      Despite easing the pressure on their defenders, the Clarets are struggling immensely to bring Gray and Vokes into the game. The two men upfront have not had a sniff thus far, which could bring a chance from Dyche at the break.
    • 35'
      Chelsea turn the screw again on the left flank as Costa raids into the box, but is forced to work back to Hazard. The Belgian strikes with power, only for Lowton to put his body on the line with a good block.
    • 36'
      CHANCE! Costa almost notches his side's second goal of the afternoon, but is denied at the near post by Heaton. Willian unlocked the Burnley defence with a neat pass to Oscar, and the Brazilian beat his man to tee up the forward, but the England keeper was there to make the save.
    • 38'
      Burnley knock the ball towards the Chelsea goal for the first time since the opening minutes of the match, unfortunately Arfield's cross sails well over the bar to the jeers of the home supporters.
    • 40'
      Willian sends the ball long into the box from a free-kick, and Cahill rises highest in the box, but his gentle header lands comfortably in the hands of Heaton. Chelsea will want a second goal before the end of the half to ensure their dominance goes rewarded.
    • 41'
      G Willian Assist N. Matić
    • 41'
      Good awareness from Costa to find his team-mate on the flank, allowing Willian to double Chelsea's lead.
    • 41'
      GOAL!!! Chelsea double their lead as Willian finds the corner with a fine effort. Costa played him in down the right flank and space opened up for the midfielder to drive his strike across Heaton and into the bottom corner.
    • 42'
      CHANCE! Burnley almost get back into the game immediately as Gray releases the run of Arfield on the right in a similar move to Chelsea's. However, Arfield fails to find the net where Willian succeeded, driving his effort just past the post.
    • 44'
      Vokes almost gets in behind Azpilicueta, but as he breaks into the box the offside flag is raised by the linesman.
    • 44'
      Ivanovic goes into the book for a poor challenge on Boyd.
    • 45'
      There will be one minute of added time.
    • 46'
      CHANCE! Burnley press forward immediately as Boyd collects on the edge of the box before teeing up Marney. The midfielder strikes with power, but sends his effort well over the bar.
    • 46'
      We're back underway at Stamford Bridge.
    • 48'
      Chelsea go back on the front foot by getting a hold of the ball, but no opportunities as of yet for the home side.
    • 50'
      Willian lines up his effort and curls the ball over the ball, but can only send his effort over the bar.
    • 50'
      Keane goes into the book for bringing down Costa 20 yards from goal. He tried to get tight to the striker, but was turned with ease. Willian now has a free-kick opportunity in a very dangerous position.
    • 52'
      CHANCE! Costa should notch his side's third goal as Matic somehow bundles the ball into his past. He has space and time in the box, but can only direct his left-footed strike straight at Heaton.
    • 54'
      The Blues keep possession right on the edge of the Burnley box, pulling the visitors defence one way then the other, but the Clarets hold firm for now. Complete dominance from Conte's men.
    • 56'
      MISS! Chelsea should be three goals to the good as Terry misses an open goal from six yards. The chance came from a corner as Willian whipped the ball to Hazard on the edge of the box and he met it with a sweet volley that was brilliantly saved by Heaton. The Chelsea skipper pounced on the rebound,

    • 58'
      SHOT! Another corner routine from Chelsea and Hazard almost notches his second by collecting the ball short. However, he cannot direct his powerful strike on target, sending the ball into the stand behind the goal.
    • 61'
      SAVE! Heaton keeps Burnley in the game with a huge save to deny Hazard. The Belgian latched on to a pinpoint pass from Willian and drove his effort low towards the bottom corner, but the England keeper was there with the stop. Costa had an opportunity on the rebound, but didn't connect well enough.
    • 63'
      Courtois finally has something to do this afternoon, and it's routine for the Belgian as he claims Gudmundsson's cross with ease at his near post.
    • 64'
      Space opens up for Gray in the final third, but a loose touch on the edge of the box allows Terry to get a foot on the ball and Cahill hammers it clear.
    • 66'
      An important block for the Clarets as O'Neill comes across just in time to stop Costa from sending his strike goalwards. Burnley are putting in a good shift this afternoon, but the Blues' quality has overwhelmed them.
    • 69'
      The intensity from the home side has dropped over the past few minutes. Burnley seem to be more comfortable at the back as Chelsea's approach play has become prolonged rather than the direct threat they had in the early stages of the half.
    • 71'
      O'Neill lines up a strike from the edge of the box, and Ivanovic takes the action out of Courtois' hands by diverting the ball wide of the post. An opportunity here for the visitors.
    • 72'
      SI J. Tarkowski SO N. Matić
    • 72'
      Marney makes way for Tarkowski for the visitors.
    • 74'
      Burnley cannot capitalise on a spell on three corners as Gudmundsson fails to find a claret shirt in the box. Dyche will not be pleased with that passage of play from his team.
    • 76'
      Burnley put further pressure on the Chelsea backline by winning another corner, but the delivery once again from Gudmundsson fails to find a team-mate, allowing the home side to clear.
    • 77'
      SI V. Moses SO N. Matić
    • 77'
      Willian has had a great game today and Conte opts to save his legs by replacing him with Moses.
    • 79'
      Lowton tries to threaten down the right, but his cross is well cleared by Ivanovic. O'Neill follows up with another delivery, but Terry hammers it clear on the edge of the area. Quality has been an issue all afternoon for the visitors.
    • 80'
      SI M. Batshuayi SO N. Matić
    • 80'
      A good shift from Costa and Batshuayi replaces him for the final 10 minutes.
    • 81'
      SI Pedro SO N. Matić
    • 81'
      Pedro comes on for the final nine minutes to replace Hazard.
    • 82'
      Moses makes a strong bursting run from the right wing and slides a pass into the feet of Batshuayi, but the striker cannot control it and Keane scrambles to clear.
    • 84'
      Chelsea press for the third goal, but their quality in the second half has been as clinical as the first. Pedro runs down the left and opens up space in the box, but he cannot find a team-mate to convert.
    • 86'
      The game is ending with a bit of whimper as Chelsea seem content to sit on their lead, while the Clarets are continuing to offer nothing in attack.
    • 89'
      G V. Moses Assist N. Matić
    • 89'
      Lovely ball across the face of goal from Pedro allowing Moses to score.
    • 89'
      GOAL!!!! Chelsea do make it three as Moses converts at the back post. It was an excellent team move started at the back as Oscar was clattered when he passed to Batshuayi. However, the referee played on and the Belgian found Pedro, who in turn delivered a pinpoint cross for Moses to score with ease.
    • 90'
      There will be three minutes of added time.
    • 90'
      Tarkowski heads into the book for his challenge on Oscar.
