With Spanish goals, Chelsea won their first match under new coach Thomas Tuchel. Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso, one in each half, guaranteed a 2-0 victory over Burnley in a game valid for the 21st round of the English Championship. The result took Chelsea to 33 points, jumping from 10th to 7th in the Premier League.
Playing at home in Stamford Bridge, Chelsea had full dominance in the first half, creating good chances, but with the attackers sinning too much in the submissions. But if the men in front were aimless, those in the back … In a quick counterattack, Mount found Hudson-Odoi, who entered the area and rolled towards the Spanish defender Azpilicueta, who appeared by surprise, opening the scoring at 40.
After Pulisic’s pass, Spanish left-back/winger Marcos Alonso dominated the chest and hit hard without letting the ball fall. Great goal that closed Burnley’s coffin at 38. The joy of coach Thomas Tuchel, who in two games did not see his team concede goals (he debuted with a 0-0 against Wolves). In addition, in this Sunday’s match, Burnley only finished once in the Blues goal.
