Frank Lampard’s Blues are on the rise, certainly.
Little by little, this Chelsea new-look is taking its ease. All is not yet perfect, of course, since Frank Lampard tried a new offensive formula on the Burnley field on Saturday in the Premier League, only 3 days away from hosting Stade Rennais in the Champions League. Tammy Abraham was launched at the forefront of the attack, with Timo werner and Hakim Zyiech on the wings and a Kai havertz right torchbearer. It worked rather well, with a victory at the key (3-0).
Ziyech still scorer!
It was Ziyech who first unblocked the situation (26th). Already a scorer against Krasnodar (0-4), in the week, during his first tenure with the Blues, the Moroccan winger this time opened his counter in the league, on a small discount from Abraham. With intractable Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kanté, the Londoners left no chance for the Clarets to return to the game. And the Rennais will wonder how to take failing this well organized block.
The Blues took shelter on the hour mark, with first an overpowering header from Kurt Zouma on a cross from Mason Mount (63rd). In the process, Werner, perfectly found by Ziyech, also made the nets tremble for the second time of the week (70th). The French defender and the German striker are both three goals in PL this season!
Giroud regains playing time
Launched for the last quarter of an hour, while he had remained on the bench for the last 4 matches (!), Olivier Giroud was refused a goal for offside (80th). In any case, Chelsea take 4th place in the standings, one point less than standings leader Everton before the end of the 7th day of the Premier League, while Burnley is dead last, with a 5th defeat in 6 outings. .
