Chelsea’s Resilient Victory at Burnley


Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella is buoyed by the team’s growing confidence as they secured a come-from-behind victory against Burnley. The Blues faced a challenging moment when they fell behind early in the match, but their ability to bounce back showcases the positive shift in their mindset this season.

In Saturday’s Premier League clash at Turf Moor, Chelsea found themselves trailing after Wilson Odobert’s low drive managed to sneak through Cucurella’s legs and catch goalkeeper Robert Sanchez off guard. However, this Chelsea side, under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino, displayed resilience.

Raheem Sterling played a pivotal role in Chelsea’s resurgence. He forced an own goal from Ameen Al-Dakhil just before halftime and won a penalty that was calmly converted by summer signing Cole Palmer for his first goal in Chelsea colors. Sterling himself also got on the scoresheet and contributed significantly to the team’s fourth goal.

Cucurella, reflecting on the match, praised the team’s reaction to going behind, stating, “The reaction of the team after conceding the goal was very good. We created chances and after half time, we were very focused on what we needed to do.” He emphasized that the team’s confidence was growing, especially after securing two consecutive wins.

The Spanish player, who has been filling in at right-back due to the absence of Reece James and the suspension of Malo Gusto, admitted that the role was a bit challenging but mentioned that his teammates’ support made the transition smoother.

Cucurella also acknowledged the element of luck in the game, particularly with the first goal, but stressed the team’s belief in their abilities and their game plan. He noted, “We believe in ourselves and the plan, and we have a really important three points.”

This victory at Burnley marks a significant step forward for Chelsea, showcasing their ability to recover from setbacks and maintain their confidence. Under Pochettino’s leadership, the team seems to be adapting well to challenges and is determined to continue their winning streak.
