Chelsea beat Burnley, Champions League hopes still alive

Conte's win-ratio after 100 games as Chelsea manager is second only to Jose Mourinho's first spell in charge

Burnley, whose stellar season began with an opening day victory at Stamford Bridge, still have a chance to see more regular Thursday night football by finishing seventh, while three points ensured the Blues had fair reason to toast Antonio Conte's 100th game in charge.

Both of Chelsea's goals were scored by Victor Moses in the first and second half.

"This could be an option for Sunday or the future", Conte said.

Victory kept Chelsea's outside chances of chasing down Tottenham Hotspur for a place in next season's Champions League alive as they closed to within five points their London rivals with four games remaining.

The Londoners were well in control of the game, making effective use of two target strikers in Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud after Conte opted to start with Eden Hazard on the bench ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Southampton.

Chelsea secured their second win on the bounce with a gritty and determined 2-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche, meanwhile, said: 'They had a couple of moments where they had a couple of golden chances, mainly from our bad play.

Moses, who performed so well last season after being converted from a winger to a fast-raiding wing-back, was sent galloping clear down the right and when goalkeeper Nick Pope failed to get a hand on his cross, defender Kevin Long turned the ball into his own net from close range.

"We are not them, we are not close to them yet, but we have moved forward".

And was the in-form Burnley that provided an early scare that got the equaliser for them in the 66th minute as Johann Gudmundsson unleashed a strike and Ashley Barnes deflected the shot into the net with his body.

"I hear that we are already in the final but if you remember, and I do very well, that five days ago we were 2-0 down against Southampton and we played a disaster against them".

Just minutes later, though, Chelsea retook the lead when Moses fired in low at Pope's near post from Emerson Palmieri's cross.

But Dyche said the game had shown a sizeable gap remained between the top six clubs and his team.
