Chelsea kept a fourth clean sheet in a row as Frank Lampard’s side blew away Burnley 3-0 with Hakim Ziyech scoring on his first Premier League start.

The arrival of Edouard Mendy, who has conceded just one goal in six appearances, seems to have settled Lampard’s team down defensively, although the goalkeeper wasn’t tested at Turf Moor from the moment Ziyech (26) put the visitors in front.

Kurt Zouma powered home his third goal of the Premier League season (63) from a Mason Mount corner before Timo Werner wrapped up the points with a majestic finish (70) to send Burnley bottom of the league.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche celebrated his eighth season in job earlier this week but may face his stiffest task to date in trying to keep Burnley away from the bottom three. From their opening six games, they have taken just one point, scoring just one solitary goal in their last six in all competitions.
