Blues' spirit fills Conte with hope

Blues' spirit fills Conte with hope

Nigeria worldwide, Victor Moses, scored his third goal in the Premier League this season as Chelsea secured a 2-1 win away to Burnley on Thursday night at Turf Moor.

Pope was helpless as Chelsea took the lead in the 20th minute, though, the goalkeeper touching on a Moses cross that deflected into his net off defender Long.

Emerson Palmieri - making his first Premier League start - saw his deep cross come through to Moses, who rifled in past an unsighted Pope to restore the Blues' lead.

Eight points separated Chelsea from Tottenham, and more importantly the final Champions League spot, when they kicked off, so it wasn't a shock to see Conte make six changes to his side, with an eye on Sunday's FA Cup semi final with Southampton.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche was pleased with his side's performance against Chelsea on Thursday, despite losing 2-1, as he believes they are getting closer to the top teams.

Spurs' 1-1 draw with Brighton on Tuesday, together with the fact that the north Londoners don't play again in the league until Monday April 30, means the Blues could soon cut the gap to just two points.

It was a special night for Antonio Conte who was taking charge of his 100th game as Chelsea boss.

Jazz beat Thunder 102-95 to tie series at 1-1
The Utah Jazz evened up their best-of-seven series with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night with a 102-95 victory. But if the Jazz are able to play defense like they did down the stretch of Game 2, that's going to be a tough task.

With Giroud and Morata adopting an impressive and early understanding, the former set up the latter for a shot from a wide angle which Pope did well to save via an outstretched boot after 10 minutes. Barnes' got his seventh and his first since a four-game scoring streak.

This win lacked the significance and the shine of Chelsea's previous three visits in 2010, 2014 and 2017, which brought a pivotal triumph, a statement of intent and an important point respectively on the way to those championship processions.

"Allegri, yes, I think he's the type of person that would get them players playing his way and be playing with the players he's got".

Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy failed to link up in the way we know they can but Puel's defence stood strong to deny Southampton when called upon.

Chelsea midfielder Marcos Alonso missed the match against Burnley but Alonso made the most of his enforced lay-off by enjoying a meal with friends at Zuma in Kensington.

But I have to see his whole performance and it wasn't possible in the past to play with two strikers.

Alonso appeared to stand on the back of Shane Long's calf during last Saturday's Premier League meeting at Saint Mary's.
