Christian Pulisic's 1st Chelsea Hat-Trick Leads Blues to Win vs. Burnley

Christian Pulisic hit a hat-trick as Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 on Saturday at Turf Moor in the Premier League to secure a seventh straight win in all competitions.

Blues boss Frank Lampard handed Pulisic his first Premier League start since August, and the United States international rewarded his manager's faith by scoring two goals in the first 45 minutes.

Pulisic netted his first Premier League goal on 21 minutes after pouncing on a mistake from Burnley defender Matthew Lowton. The Chelsea winger raced forwards and slid a low shot across goal and into the bottom corner of the net.
