All Chelsea fans are all saying the same thing about Raheem Sterling’s display vs Burnley
Raheem Sterling truly stood out as the star player for Chelsea in this afternoon’s exhilarating 4-1 victory away at Burnley, as voiced by a considerable number of Blues fans across various social media platforms. In what was their final Premier League fixture before the international break, Chelsea showcased resilience by bouncing back from an early setback, ultimately clinching all three points at Turf Moor.
The match kicked off with Burnley taking the lead in the 15th minute through Wilson Odobert’s well-placed strike, setting a challenging tone for the visitors. However, just before the halftime whistle, the tide shifted as Chelsea managed to level the score, courtesy of an own goal by Ameen Al Dakhil, highlighting the unpredictable nature of the game.
The second half saw Raheem Sterling’s extraordinary performance come to the forefront. Displaying exceptional skill and determination, Sterling was instrumental in securing the vital win for Chelsea. First and foremost, he earned a penalty for the team, which was expertly converted by Cole Palmer, altering the scoreline to 2-1 in favor of Chelsea.
Not content with just the assist, Sterling then showcased his attacking prowess by finding the back of the net himself, extending Chelsea’s lead with a clinical finish using his left foot. This goal was a testament to the collaborative efforts of Conor Gallagher and Moises Caicedo in the build-up, underlining Chelsea’s effective teamwork.
To further emphasize his impact, Sterling played a pivotal role in the final goal of the match, orchestrated by Nicolas Jackson. Demonstrating exceptional composure within the box, Jackson skillfully concluded the play, securing an emphatic 4-1 triumph for Chelsea. Notably, Sterling played a significant part in the build-up, racing down the left wing, adding to his influential contributions throughout the game.
Although Sterling had seen some time on the bench in previous games, his return to the starting XI under Mauricio Pochettino proved to be a masterstroke. Despite being overlooked for the England squad in the October internationals by Gareth Southgate, Sterling left an indelible mark with his remarkable performance against Burnley. A sentiment echoed by many Chelsea supporters on social media, who lauded Sterling for his exceptional display and acknowledged the message he sent out to the national team manager through his outstanding contributions on the field.
