Havertz grabs brace as Chelsea bash Burnley

Kai Havertz grabbed a brace on Saturday as Chelsea bashed Burnley 4-0 away from home to hold on to third place in English Premier League.

After a goalless first half, Chelsea turned on the heat as Reece James got the opener on 47 minutes.

He had acres of space after latching on to a precise pass into the box and unleashed a great effort which ended up in the bottom left corner.

Three minutes later, Christian Pulisic sent a long raking pass onto the head of Havertz, who made no mistake from close in and sent the ball into the left side of the goal to make it 2-0 for the visitors.

Chelsea struck the third goal three minutes later through Havertz.

He scored after an assist by Reece James that allowed him to tap in the ball into an empty net.

Christian Pulisic compounded Burnley’s misery on 69 minutes. He received the ball after one of the defenders failed to make a clearance and sent the ball into the back of the net.
