Chelsea win at Burnley closes gap on fourth-placed Spurs

Sean Dyche says Chelsea should not be under-estimated despite the challenges they've faced this season

Antonio Conte saw Victor Moses' second-half winner notch his second Premier League victory of the week but, more importantly, this was a Chelsea performance that also suggested that this so-far instantly forgettable season may yet end with silverware.

The pair had played together from the bench, but never from the start, and Giroud was impressed with his link-up with the Spain global.

Mark Hughes' team is four points adrift of fourth from bottom Swansea, which has played one game fewer, and five behind next best Crystal Palace. "Obviously we have an opportunity in training to work on it and we know exactly what the manager wants from us".

"The players are a little bit flat and we have got a big game at the weekend but we are not in the situation where we are downhearted".

"No [competition], not at all. We are doing fantastic but still there is a gap in front of teams like us and many other teams", he added, praising the way his team took the game on after falling behind.

"Alvaro must be angry, because when you have the chance to score you have to score and it can change your confidence", he told a post-match news conference.

It was much the same story for the first 10 minutes of the second half, the Clarets winning the battle for territory but failing to test Thibaut Courtois. "A lot of times I played with two strikers".

'I think yesterday he played a really good game, defensively and offensively. I was very exhausted because this game demanded a lot of pressing from us. "Not disappointed overall. We are not them, we are not close to them yet, but we have moved forward". I tried to combine with Alvaro in the first half. "It's very hard and to get where we are is hard but that's the challenge". "It is never easy to win here".

But when Morata was substituted for Eden Hazard, the striker was goaded by fans over the miss as he left the pitch.
