IT wasn't the way Sean Dyche would have wanted to celebrate eight years in charge at Turf Moor but the Burnley boss admitted his side were outclassed by Chelsea.

The Clarets are now rooted at the wrong end of the table with just one point from their first six outings - that coming in a 0-0 draw at West Brom - and Dyche has issues to address at both ends of the field.

The Burnley admitted to being outclassed by the opposition on this occasion but was aggrieved by the decision not award a penalty when Edouard Mendy bundled through Ashley Barnes a few moments after the striker had shot over from a great position.

“The best side won, so that is about right,” said Dyche whose side have also lost to Leicester City, Southampton, Newcastle and Spurs. “But I am confused about penalties now. I don’t know what is a penalty and what isn’t. People get touched on the shoulder, their legs buckle and it’s a penalty.

“He (Barnes) gets felled pretty harshly but it’s not a penalty. I’m pretty confused. If that’s in the middle of the pitch it’s a foul, 100 per cent.

“I’m not remotely suggesting if we get the penalty we win the game, just to be clear, but you still want to have it.”

Chelsea new signing Hakim Ziyech starred for the Blues, scoring one and setting up another up or Timo Werner on his full Premier League debut.

It was a dream start for the Moroccan, who had already netted on his first start for the club in midweek during a 4-0 win at FC Krasnodar, and he impressed again on his domestic debut.

Either side of those two goals, Kurt Zouma powered in a Mason Mount corner to diminish any possibility of a Burnley fightback.

The result propelled Chelsea into the top four and manager Frank Lampard was delighted with his side's performance.

“This feels like a nice step forward," he said. "We’re nowhere near the end of the road but it was a really good display and a solid one too. Certainly, we have a nice bit of momentum.

“We brought players in who didn’t have a pre-season so we knew we couldn’t throw everything in the air and have it all land perfectly. But clean sheets are a great sign of the spine in the team.

“When you’re keeping clean sheets and scoring goals you know you’re going in the right direction. I’m not going to jump up and down after a win, but I really enjoyed that performance. We were much more positive in our style of forward passing and that’s all part of the process.”

As for Ziyech, who scored in Russia on his first start for the club and followed up on his first Premier League start with a goal and an assist for Werner, Lampard was suitably enthused.

“I expected a lot of him because I’m aware of his quality, but what we’ve seen since he’s been here is his personality,” he said.

“He gives us a big boost with his demeanour and he’s had two goals in two games in just a few days, it’s a really good start for him.”

Werner owed his starting berth to Christian Pulisic’s injury in the warm-up, with Lampard revealing the forward experienced “a small sensation in his hamstring”. He will now be sent for scans to assess the problem.
