Blues sign four-goal win at Turf Moor (0-4)

The biggest win at Turf Moor ever came courtesy of goals from Alvaro Morata, Ross Barkley, Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. It was another dominant away performance from Maurizio Sarri’s men and four goals certainly didn’t flatter Blues - also hit the woodwork twice and Joe Hart was the home side's outstanding performer. Eden Hazard's absence through injury made it all the more impressive.

Pedro formed on Maurizio Sarri’s starting line-up – it was his 100th start for the Blues - and played a good performance up-front on the opening stage, but on the half hour he was forced to left the field in some pain holding his stomach.

Morata opened the scoring midway through the first half with a confident finish, and two goals in five minutes either side of the hour, well-struck long-range efforts from Barkley and Willian respectively, made the outcome comfortable.

Loftus-Cheek continued his own rich vein of scoring form with a goal in stoppage time to add gloss to the final scoreline. The margin of victory is our greatest in this part of Lancashire, beating our 3-1 success here in 2014. It also extends our unbeaten start to life under Sarri, and moves us up to second in the table ahead of Tottenham and Man City’s game tomorrow night.

The back problem Hazard picked up in last weekend’s draw with Manchester United ruled him out, so Pedro started his 100th Chelsea game alongside Morata and Willian.
