Chelsea fans react as Blues pull off important 2-1 win vs Burnley

Chelsea kept the pressure on Tottenham after a 2-1 win over high-flying Burnley. The Blues have had a tough time in recent games but the win kept us five points behind Spurs with four games left in the season.

With the FA Cup semi-final on the horizon, Antonio Conte made a number of changes to the starting XI with Cesc Fabregas and Willian being rested and Eden Hazard only coming on as a second-half substitute.

The opening goal came in the 20th minute when Kevin Long scored an own goal. Burnley, who are seventh in the table, levelled in the 64th minute through Ashley Barnes.

However, Victor Moses became our unlikely saviour and scored in the 69th minute to keep us in the hunt for Champions League football next season.

One of the talking points was the fact that we played with two strikers up top for the first time in many years. Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud started as the front-two and that certainly raised a few eyebrows, to say the least.

Twitter was full of great reactions and here are some of the best.
