Moses sparkles as Chelsea beats Burnley

Moses sparkles as Chelsea beats Burnley

At Turf Moor, Burnley - who is chasing an Arsenal and a place in Europe next season - host Antonio Conte's Chelsea.

Conte has repeatedly criticised his club's hierarchy this season for what he considers a lack of investment that has undermined their title defence.

Antonio Conte believes that Sean Dyche has a "more simple" job at Burnley than he does at Chelsea.

Burnley are aiming to win six-straight games in the Premier League as reigning champs Chelsea head to Lancashire hoping to cut the gap on the top four to just five points. "We'll see where it takes us, but it's very pleasing to be in this position at this stage of the season", Dyche was quoted by BBC. "I like the way they improved the team and the squad".

"We have to try until the end to reach this target", the Italian manager added.

"Linked with that the one game at a time mentality which is something that rings off the walls in this building from the manager. each week we go about it the same way, we focus on us, we have a healthy respect for the opposition and we build on that really".

Alvaro Morata has had a poor season since his summer move from Real Madrid and he should have doubled Chelsea's lead in the second half but somehow fired wide when clean through against goalkeeper Nick Pope.

While Dyche has undoubtedly overachieved, Conte... "If we can attempt to chase down Arsenal - I don't think that would have been words I'd have been using at the beginning of the season - we will do".

"It is more hard when you have to prepare the transfer market to win something because only one team wins, and the others must see [them] win".

'It is more simple because you have to avoid the last three places at the bottom and then you can stay between 10 teams.

Conte accepts the odds are stacked against his team but has urged his players to fight for a top-four spot until it's mathematically impossible.

"In my life, my career I fought to avoid the relegation zone".
