THAT’S ALL FOLKS
Thomas Tuchel may possibly have just had the easiest game of his Chelsea managerial career this afternoon.
The Blues were dominant from start to finish and that’s no exaggeration because Burnley’s ONLY shot of the game came in additional time right at the end.
After a mixed bag of missed opportunities and tamed efforts, it took an overlapping Azplicueta to fire a rocket of an effort past Nick Pope after the Spaniard was expertly picked out by Callum Hudson-Odoi.
I may have mentioned this once or twice, but Hudson-Odoi was unreal today.
The home side picked up from where they left off in the second half, not allowing the Clarets to have a moments rest.
More shots were fired at Burnley’s goalkeeper but pure luck was keeping Chelsea at bay.
Until a forgotten man named Marcos Alonso popped up with an absolute blinder of a goal – potentially goal of the season to put the Blues two up.
Tarkwoski did manage to conjure up a last minute header for Dyche’s men but nothing really to trouble Mendy.
That’s four points out of a possible six for the new boss Tuchel but his first real test will come on Thursday against Spurs.
Thank you for sticking with me family and please go check out Alonso’s goal (see in blog) because it was amazing.
Have a good Sunday!
