West London giants Chelsea have consolidated their place in the top four of the Premier League after their win over hosts Burnley.

The Clarets played hosts to the Blues at the Turf Moor on Saturday evening in one of the week’s ten games in the English top flight this term.

The Blues went on to win the league game against Burnley to maintain their spot in the Champions League places in the Premier League log.

Only the top four teams will qualify for the Champions League next season via the Premier League route.

Chelsea beat their hosts 4-2 as the two teams served up a six-goal thriller with four of those goals coming in the second half.

Blues boss Frank Lampard gave summer signing Christian Pulisic his first start in the Premier League since August and he took his chance with both hands as he scored three goals to help his team to their seventh win in quick succession in all competitions.

Christian Pulisic capitalized on two Burnley mistakes to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead at the halftime interval before he completed his hat-trick in the second half of the game.

Willian added a fourth goal for Chelsea before Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil scored late for the hosts to make the scoreline more respectable.
