Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was delighted with their 4-2 win at Burnley.
Lampard’s side notched up a seventh straight win in all competitions through Christian Pulisic’s hat-trick and a Willian strike that put them four goals to the good midway through the second half.
He said, “It was really pleasing because it’s a worry. You travel back, you’re aware the other team doesn’t have that situation. That was a really taxing game, it was our toughest physical game of the year, so credit to the medical staff and everyone that works around the players.
“They put a lot of hours in, and in the last two or three days, the players themselves have been professional about how they have recovered and picked themselves up to come to Burnley.
“We knew it would be a tough match. It’s easy to take the small gloss off it with two goals late on, but it doesn’t take any gloss off for me. For the 95 per cent of the game we played some outstanding football in at a really tough place to play, was what made me very happy.”
