Burnley 0-4 Chelsea LIVE SCORE: Pulisic, James and Havertz give Blues solace in Turf Moor route

CHRISTIAN PULISIC, Kai Havertz and Reece James have comforted Chelsea at Turf Moor as they attempt to join Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race.

Saul Niguez started Chelsea’s Premier League clash at Burnley – and Thiago Silva had an early chance down the line.

Dwight McNeil then missed a sitter for the Clarets, who should have gone in at halftime with at least a goal on the board.

Sean Dyche’s side lost their last meeting with Leicester but were previously unbeaten in three games as they attempted to fight their way out of a relegation battle.
