93' WHAT A SAVE BY HEATON! Gets low down to save a close-range shot from Azpilicueta!! Had it not been for the GK Burnley's Goal difference would have been in the negative today! 

...

91' Burnley have been thoroughly outplayed by Conte's men today

...

90' Finally the Blues get that third goal! Once again on the break, Batshuayi finds Pedro on the left and his cross is met by Moses who has a simple finish. The two substitutes combine to put the gloss on this very impressive victory

...

89' 3-0!!!! MOSES SCORES! The icing on the cake!

...

86' Batshuayi does all the hard work by beating two or three defenders but blazes over!

...

80' Michy Batshuayi will be coming on for DIego Costa

...

77' Willian comes off and Moses comes on

...

76' An unnecessary flick by Oscar as his cross ends up behind the goal

...

75' Burnley exerting some pressure in the last stage of the game! But they could get caught on the counter

...

72' Two corners back to back for Burnley. Maybe they could still get something out this game

...

70' With 20 minutes to go Burnley have endured a barrage of attacks from the Blues but somehow the scoreline still reads 2-0. Costa hasn't had a great day in front of goal which has made the scoreline look respectable 

...

65' Another Brave block from O'Neil as COsta 's shot goes out for a corner!!

...

62' EVEN Sherlock Homes won't be able to decipher how the score is still 2-0!! Hazard produces another save out of Heaton and Costa somehow misses on the follow up again!!!

...

60' CLOSE AGAIN FROM HAZARD! Chelsea play it short and Hazard picks up the ball fakes a couple of defenders but blazes just over from inside the area!

...

59' Hazard is absolutely running riot against Burnley, Another reverse ball opens up the defence and it's out for a corner

...

58' HOW DID TERRY MISS THAT!! Hazard with a first-time volley as the ball drops from outside the box as Heaton makes a brilliant save but Terry is at the right place at the right time and somehow scoops it over from Point Blank range!

...

54' The flicks and tricks are coming out now from Chelsea players! Hazard chooses to try the back flick cross instead of the usual way of crossing!

...

52' WHAT A CHANCE!! Again Chelsea catch Burnley in possession but Costa not able to find the finish! He doesn't have his shooting boots on at the moment. Must have left em' on the bus!

...

49' Burnley need a goal to have any chance of getting anything from this game but Chelsea scoring looks a lot more likely as Costa wins a free-kick

...

We are back underway. Will Chelsea extend their lead and make it a demolishion?

...

Half Time Chelsea 2-0 Burnley

...

43' Burnley almost hit back immediately with Vokes from a similar angle of the Willian goal but he can;t produce the same result and it's wide of the post

...

42' What a finish from the Brazilian winger! He beats his man with a swivel of his right foot and then powers a low drive past Heaton from a  very tough angle Brilliant!

...

40' GOAAALLLL!!! CHELSEA 2-0!! Willian scores

...

39' Free kick for Chelsea. Willian floats it in. Cahill rises but it's more a back header to Heaton more than anything

...

37' SAVE!!!! Chelsea finally work their way through the Burnley defence. Willian plays in  Oscar who wasn't picked up in the box and he cuts it back for Costa but his effort is weak and straight at Heaton. That was a great chance to make it 2-0!

...

33' The game is at a standstill! After a ferocious first 20 minutes from Chelsea, the next 12 or so have been very lacklustre

...

28' And Burnley finally get some respite! A foul by Oscar gives a free-kick to the visitors! Phew that was a long spell of possession almost as long as a FRIENDS episode!

...

27' CHANCE! Willian's corner is met by Terry who rises highest and directs his header towards the far corner but not enough power to beat Heaton and he makes a comfortable save

...

25' It only feels like a matter of time before Chelsea score as another cross is cleared by a last ditch interception!

...

Eden Hazard has scored 6 goals in his last 8 #PL appearances, having not scored in his 29 league appearances prior to that Via Skysports

...

21' Even since the goal, Burnley have had a sniff of the ball! The Blues are walking all over the Clarets. Who knows, a hammering could do their goal difference a world of good and put them firmly on top of the EPL table today!

...

18' Chelsea are rampant here! Hazard picks out Costa with a wonderful lobbed ball but he just can't control it or else he would have been through on goal!

...

15' WHAT A CLEARANCE BY MEE! Hazard had all the time in the world at the far post from an Ivanovic cross but somehow the Burnley defender managed to deflect the ball on the goal line for a corner

...

13' Tough ask for Burnley to try and get themselves level but the Blues defense can be vulnerable at times
