Chelsea took its time finding its finishing touch at Turf Moor but had it academic early in the second half as an eight-minute outburst led the Blues to a 4-0 win over the Clarets on Saturday.

Kai Havertz scored twice, one set up by fellow scorer Christian Pulisic and the other by opening scorer Reece James as Chelsea turned a halftime stalemate into a three-goal cushion by the 55th minute.

The Blues move onto 53 points, six more than Manchester United with one fewer match played than the fourth-place Red Devils.

Burnley fails to climb out of the bottom three with its second loss of the week, its 21 points still one behind Everton.
