Chelsea secure back-to-back away wins since October 2022

Raheem Sterling had a hand in all four goals as the Blues romped to victory after falling behind at Burnley. Sterling’s heroics at Turf Moor came after 18-year-old French forward Wilson Odobert marked his first Premier League start by drilling low and hard past Robert Sanchez to send Burnley into raptures.

Chelsea were disjointed for spells but were back on level terms before half-time thanks to an own goal. A cross by Sterling, back in the starting XI after a virus, struck the knee of Belgium defender Ameen Al-Dakhil and looped over James Trafford into the net.

Chelsea, inspired by Sterling, then scored three times in a strong second-half showing to take the points.

Sterling won a penalty after being fouled by Brazilian defender Vitinho, which allowed Cole Palmer to score his first goal for the Blues.

Substitute Nicolas Jackson sealed the points with a spin and finish, with Sterling once again involved in the move.
