  1. FT: Burnley 1 Chelsea 3. After going behind early on, Chelsea sent a clear message to their title rivals by earning a 3-1 win here at Turf Moor. Diego Costa's booking for diving will remain a talking point for days to come, but it should not deter from what was a mightily impressive Blues display.

  2. 90+2

    Kightly tries one last time to breach the Chelsea backline, but it is no good, and John Terry stands firm.

  3. 90

    Three minutes off added time...

  4. 88

    Drogba almost made a fairytale return, but fired wide from outside the box. Showed glimpses of his retained ability.

  5. 86

    Marvin Sordell is booked for a late challenge on John Terry. Just showed a little too much enthusiasm.

  6. 84

    The legend is back! Didier Drogba comes on for Edin Hazard.

  7. 82

    Marvin Sordell makes his Premier League bow for Burnley, replacing Danny Ings.

  8. 81

    John Obi Mikel now will enter the fray. Replaces Oscar.

  9. 78

    Willian comes on for Chelsea, replacing Andre Schurrle.

  10. 76

    Fabregas showing his class. Whenever the ball is at his feet, he seems to pick out the right pass. Could be the difference for Chelsea this season.

  11. 74

    Burnley try a training ground free-kick routine, but the dummy fooled everyone, including the Clarets players themselves.

  12. 72

    Chelsea fans doing their best to rouse their side to net more goals, but seems like the players are having none of it, and happy in second gear.

  13. 70

    Game very slow paced now. Burnley players looking weary, while Chelsea just happy to keep the ball.

  14. 68

    Double change for Burnley with Michael Kightly and Ashley Barnes coming on for Jutkiewicz and Matt Taylor.

  15. 65

    Matty Taylor almost gets on the end of a lofted right-wing cross, but cannot quite get high enough to make any connection.

  16. 63

    Trippier fires a low cross into the box, but John Terry clears with ease. Still offering a threat the home side.

  17. 61

    Diego Costa certainly cannot be accused of not putting the effort in. Has ran his socks off up front, and chased down everything.

  18. 59

    Chelsea more wasteful in possession as they take their foot off the gas. Have to remember it is not over yet!

  19. 57

    Chelsea very much slowing the pace of the game now, not committing anywhere near as many bodies forward as earlier in the contest.

  20. 55

    Jutkiewicz commits a foul on Oscar, showing his frustration after being largely anonymous throughout.
