Just six minutes and 14 seconds after Burnley's unexpected opening goal, Chelsea were back in front.

What was the most stimulating aspect of the game till then was the pace at which the home side were playing. There was more movement off the ball, more urgency and much more precision in the way they went about their passing.

The true ingredient and demand of Sarri-ball - quick passing - was seen to its best extent.

In the first goal, Hazard tricked Matthew Lowton inside out to lay it on a plate for N'Golo Kante, who smashed it to the top of the net. But it was the second goal that initiated awes around the stadium, when Higuain produced some fancy footwork on the edge of the box and Azpilicueta flicked it back to his path.

The 31-year-old forward then left Heaton stranded with a powerful strike.
