  • FT: Burnley 1 Chelsea 3. After going behind early on, Chelsea sent a clear message to their title rivals by earning a 3-1 win here at Turf Moor. Diego Costa's booking for diving will remain a talking point for days to come, but it should not deter from what was a mightily impressive Blues display.

  • Kightly tries one last time to breach the Chelsea backline, but it is no good, and John Terry stands firm.

  • Three minutes off added time...

  • Drogba almost made a fairytale return, but fired wide from outside the box. Showed glimpses of his retained ability.

  • Marvin Sordell is booked for a late challenge on John Terry. Just showed a little too much enthusiasm.

  • The legend is back! Didier Drogba comes on for Edin Hazard.

  • Marvin Sordell makes his Premier League bow for Burnley, replacing Danny Ings.

  • John Obi Mikel now will enter the fray. Replaces Oscar.

  • Willian comes on for Chelsea, replacing Andre Schurrle.

  • Fabregas showing his class. Whenever the ball is at his feet, he seems to pick out the right pass. Could be the difference for Chelsea this season.

  • Burnley try a training ground free-kick routine, but the dummy fooled everyone, including the Clarets players themselves.

  • Chelsea fans doing their best to rouse their side to net more goals, but seems like the players are having none of it, and happy in second gear.

  • Game very slow paced now. Burnley players looking weary, while Chelsea just happy to keep the ball.

  • Double change for Burnley with Michael Kightly and Ashley Barnes coming on for Jutkiewicz and Matt Taylor.

  • Matty Taylor almost gets on the end of a lofted right-wing cross, but cannot quite get high enough to make any connection.

  • Trippier fires a low cross into the box, but John Terry clears with ease. Still offering a threat the home side.

  • Diego Costa certainly cannot be accused of not putting the effort in. Has ran his socks off up front, and chased down everything.

  • Chelsea more wasteful in possession as they take their foot off the gas. Have to remember it is not over yet!

  • Chelsea very much slowing the pace of the game now, not committing anywhere near as many bodies forward as earlier in the contest.

  • Jutkiewicz commits a foul on Oscar, showing his frustration after being largely anonymous throughout.
