Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino was full of praise for Raheem Sterling following an excellent performance against Burnley.
The England international had a strong start to the Premier League season for the Blues but he recently suffered a dip in form.
The attacker managed to redeem himself at Turf Moor. His dangerous cross into the box led to an own goal to equalise at 1-1.
Shortly after the break, Sterling won a penalty converted by Cole Palmer before he scored a goal of his own in the 65th minute.
For the fourth goal, Sterling was once again involved. His cross into the box fell into the path of Palmer who assisted Nicolas Jackson‘s goal.
Speaking after the game, Pochettino hailed the performance of Sterling as well as the team saying: “All the players try to play well and today he was well, he was involved in the goals and I am so happy for him and so happy for the team.”
Despite the victory, the Blues remain 11th in the league standings with 11 points, but there is growing confidence within the squad now.
