Eden Hazard inspires Blues third successive league win
Aug 31 2016 by Marjorie Miles
It proved to be a simple victory over the claret and blues, with goals from Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses giving them the three points, but the manager insisted that his side can still improve.
Chelsea have won maximum points in their first three Premier League fixtures and will take on Swansea City next at the Liberty Stadium after the global break.
New head coach Conte is already convincing the Chelsea supporters that the club have replaced the Special One with the Super One and, just as importantly, Hazard appears to have rediscovered his own super powers.
Burnley could not contain Hazard and Heaton was relieved to see a well-struck shot fly just over the bar, before saving another effort that was cleared before Costa could tap it in. He has great talent and also I know he's a good guy who wants to improve.
He concluded: "I am very pleased to work with the players I have because the attitude and work-rate I see every day is fantastic", but stated that "We are working together to find the right solution to improve this squad".

Players were visibly distraught as they exited the field, and Zimmer said he spoke with the team prior to addressing the media. The next time Zimmer addresses his players it won't be to offer comfort but to inform them their goals still can be attained.
We created a lot of chances and kept a clean sheet - this is important because after 13 home games without a clean sheet this helps the confidence and shows the hard work is paying off.
"I m pleased for him, but also for Pedro as a winger too", said Conte, who brought the former Barcelona wide man on against Burnley and saw him set up the third goal a minute from time. When we concede a goal the whole team does, not only the defenders'. Today we made a decision to win the game.
"It s a pity that now there is this worldwide break".
"To start the season with three wins and a win in the cup is good for all, for the confidence of the players and the fans", he told the Blues' official website.
Dyche, who confirmed Burnley are close to taking Patrick Bamford on loan from Chelsea said: "There's a huge gulf between where we are as a club and where they are".
