Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel: I have said many times that I love working in the Premier League and love to be in England… Chelsea is, from my point of view, a perfect fit for me. I love to be here and every single thing about the club. Hopefully it continues. There is now uncertainty, but isn’t that always as a football manager? I am used to and trained to live with it at different levels and this is quite the level. But I am positive and I hope things will end well.
Chelsea Starting XI: Edouard Mendy; Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Saul Niguez; Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic; Kai Havertz.
Subs: Kenedy, Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Romelu Lukaku, Malang Sarr, Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea dominated possession in the first 45 minutes of play, but it was Burnley who had better chances in front of the goal. What is lacking for the hosts is the finishing.
Visitors Chelsea ended the half with back-to-back corners, without a clear chance on goal. The best chance so far was the one when Burnley’s McNeil shot it over the Chelsea crossbar from close range, that too in front of an empty goal after keeper Mendy made a horrendous mistake. So it remained goalless at Turf Moor.
