Chelsea 3-0 Burnley

Antonio Conte demonstrated the difference between genius and dinosaur as his Chelsea side stomped all over Burnley and crushed them into submission.

Sean Dyche, Burnley’s manager, sparked debate when he complained that foreign coaches are hailed for assembling defensive, hard-working teams but when young English managers do the same they are considered primitive. 

Conte argued the difference comes down to facts, not words, and the evidence here was a 3-0 scoreline, 61 per cent possession, 21 shots, nine on target. Laid bare at Stamford Bridge was why Conte is in charge at Chelsea and will be challenging for titles while Dyche will be fighting to avoid relegation with Burnley.
