Conte Considers 2 Strikers For FA Clash Against Southampton

Chelsea halted Burnley's momentum with a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor.

Which Chelsea players impressed most during their win over Burnley? An own goal from Kevin Long, coupled with a strike from Victor Moses, did the job for the Blues.

However Antonio Conte seemed to decide at the end of last season that he no longer wanted the Spaniard around.

"We haven't played together much, but it is easy to play with this kind of player", Giroud 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.

Chelsea didn't let that equalizer stop them.

Conte suggested prior to the game that managing Burnley was an easier task than leading Chelsea due to reduced expectations, but Dyche was happy to offer another perspective.

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

Chelsea made six changes at high-flying Burnley, with Olivier Giroud being rewarded for his double against Southampton on Saturday with a starting place.

The English coach with a five-year contract and the total backing of his board. Giroud's failed scorpion attempt baffled the Clarets defence, leaving the ball to fall for the right wing-back who expertly blasted a low drive into the bottom corner.

"With this desire and will to fight and to get a good result, we have this possibility". "But I've got no problem with his angle at all".

Reflecting on the Chelsea manager's pre-match comments on BBC 5Live, Burnley chairman Mike Garlick mused: 'It's interesting knowing what we have had to work with recently.

With Marcos Alonso beginning a three-match ban, Emerson was given his first Premier League start following his move from Roma in January. "We need to defend properly and be a threat the other way". At the same time, you have to try and get three points in every game. Ashley Barnes equalized in the 64th minute.

I signed here to win trophies. These are clubs who can field club-record signings in attack, but they have not delivered enough goals.

The bad form of the team and the absence of reliable wingers and strikers who could feed off his creativity have also severely hampered the Icelandic genius' output.

This season, the Terry-less Chelsea look like they have no leaders. Nobody go motivate themselves.
