Chelsea beat Burnley to keep Champions League hopes alive

Burnley: Victor Moses struck a 69th-minute winner for Chelsea to give Antonio Conte`s side a 2-1 Premier League victory over Burnley at Turf Moor on Thursday, closing the gap on fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea trail Spurs by five points with just four games remaining but the win kept alive their slim hopes of a late push for the final Champions League slot. "It won`t be easy because there is a five-point gap to Tottenham and in the past we missed great chances to stay closer to them," said Conte.

"Now the only way is to try to get three points in every game from now until the end, which won`t be easy because we are playing teams fighting to avoid relegation. But we have to try and tonight I saw a great spirit," the Italian added.
