Chelsea have picked up their first Premier League win in almost a month thanks to a 3-0 victory at Burnley.

The Blues have lost just once this season but goals from Hakim Ziyech, Kurt Zouma and Timo Werner mean they end a run of draws as Burnley’s struggles continue.

The Clarets were the brighter of the two sides in the opening stages as Ashley Barnes wasted a brilliant early chance.

But that proved to be a brief flicker of positivity for Sean Dyche’s team as Nick Pope was quickly called into action to deny Tammy Abraham.

And with the Blues upping the pressure on Dyche’s out of form side, Ziyech netted his first Premier League goal on 27 minutes.

Abraham’s neat pass found him in space inside the box and his deflected strike flew past Pope.

Despite Burnley showing some signs of life after the break their lack of cutting edge meant Chelsea were able to wrestle back control.

But despite Burnley working hard to plug the gaps as Chelsea poured forward, a simple corner found Zouma in space at the back post and he powered a header past Pope.

That goal drained the life from Burnley as a ruthless Chelsea counter attack exposed them for a third goal.

Reece James’ ball forward released Ziyech and he played in Werner to fire home.

Chelsea created chances for a fourth in the final minutes but in the end, it was to be three goals and three points for Lampard.
