Chelsea Hail MOTM Moses After Starring Role In Burnley Win

GETTY    
   FEUD Antonio Conte has taken another swipe at Jose Mourinho

They were accomplished going forward despite the absence of Cesc Fabregas and Willian, while Eden Hazard appeared only as a second-half substitute.

Former Juventus striker Alvaro Morata was denied after the half hour mark to extend the lead but Burnley keeper Nick Pope diverted the Spaniard's lobbed shot over.

However, Burnley's hopes of leapfrogging Arsenal into sixth were dealt a blow by a first defeat in seven games.

The Stamford Bridge outfit however took a deserved on twenty minutes through Moses' doggedness on the flank. "It was the first time to play as a midfielder".

Barring an unthinkable collapse, a place in the Europa League second qualifying round between 26 July and 2 August appears a probable destination.

With Marcos Alonso beginning a three-match ban, Emerson was given his first Premier League start following his move from Roma in January.

Making five changes for the welcoming of Southampton, Leicester frustrated the Saints for 90 minutes at the King Power despite not truly being at their best in attack.

"It's not simple to play against Burnley this season but we put pressure on every moment of the game with our strikers", Conte said afterwards, per Sky Sports.

Long went even closer in the second half with a swivelling effort which was blocked at point-blank range by Ben Hamer, who was standing in for the injured Kasper Schmeichel in goal.

Saints keeper Alex McCarthy also tipped over Jamie Vardy's prodded effort as Leicester searched for a victor.

"I have two days to make the best decision for Sunday's game, to understand who are the players who have recovered, and then to make the best decision".

The defender made 10 clearances against Southampton, more than any other player on the pitch and marshalled the defence in the absence of captain Wes Morgan.

Here are five things we learned from the two matches.

"Obviously we have an opportunity in training to work on it and we know exactly what the manager wants from us".

"We played the game very well and the two strikers (Alvaro Morata and Giroud) worked very well".

Giroud, 31, said Chelsea could compete strongly in the Premier League next season despite the disappointments of the current campaign but the club want to finish the season on a high.
