Burnley had the lead in the 14th minute as Scott Arfield found the back of the net.
Diego Costa showed why Chelsea spent 32 million pounds ($53 million) to bring him in from Atletico Madrid when he slotted in the equaliser just three minutes later
Cesc Fabregas troubled the opposition the most as he created chances for Chelsea out of nowhere.
Andre Schuerrle got a sublime pass for Fabregas to make it 2-1 in the 21st minute.
Fabregas then sent in a corner in the 34th that Branislav Ivanovic volleyed into the net after some slack defending.
Jose Mourinho was a satisfied man as Chelsea displayed skill and talent to clinically finish their opponents.
