The Debrief: Chelsea dominant but left frustrated by stubborn Burnley

Picking the ball up wide on the right, Reece touch a perfect touch out of his feet before opening his body and delivering a whipped cross that was screaming out to be headed home. Kai answered those calls and duly delivered.

There was almost a repeat performance in the second period, with James again delivering a fine cross from the right but this time Thiago Silva’s header clipped the outside of the post rather than the inside of the woodwork.

But with his assist for Havertz, James has now recorded seven goal involvements in the Premier League this season – four goals, three assists – more than any other Chelsea team-mate. In fact, only Mo Salah, Michail Antonio and Jamie Vardy have recorded more.
