Callum Hudson-Odoi scored his 1st Premier League goal as Chelsea shrugged off their home struggles with a 3-0 win over Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard had seen his team lose 3 of their past four topping matches on their own patch and that they had an early scare once a debatable offsides decision denied Jeff Hendrick the opener.
However, Jorginho’s 27th-minute penalty and Tammy Abraham’s fifteenth of the season altogether competitions settled nerves.
Hudson-Odoi then arrived on the act and just some later wastefulness from Abraham averted a heavier defeat for Burnley, who are four points higher than the relegation zone in fifteenth having compete a game more than the four sides now below them.
Burnley thought they were ahead within the eighteenth minute, however ben Mee was flagged offsides once he nodded Dwight McNeil’s free-kick back across goal for Hendrick to end.
A var review allowed a marginal decision from the referee’s assistant to face and therefore the guests once more had no help from the video official when Chelsea went ahead.
Although Matthew Lowton force his boot out of a challenge on Willian, who looked as if it would be anticipating contact, he still clattered into the Brazil winger and Jorginho nonchalantly dispatched from twelve yards.
McNeil’s set pieces were inflicting Chelsea issues, with Kepa Arrizabalaga turning a coffee attempt to his close to post behind before Mee’s header from the resulting corner was cleared off the road by Ross Barkley.
Mee’s positioning may need inconvenienced Nick Pope once the Burnley goalkeeper waved Abraham’s header into his net.
Pope part atoned for that flaky lapse with a pointy stop from Reece James, who crossed impeccably for Abraham’s goal.
Lax Burnley defensive allowed Hudson-Odoi to slide in Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross four minutes when the restart, with a var check closing Abraham didn’t get a flick thereon would have seen the goal dominated out for offsides.
Abraham misjudged to go over at the close to post, having been denied by a reflex stop from Pope, who unbroken out a Willian piledriver and first-time Mason Mount strike within the final quarter-hour.
