LONDON, Aug 27: Chelsea continued its perfect start to the English Premier League under new manager Antonio Conte, beating Burnley 3-0 on Saturday.

Chelsea has nine points from three league games with Conte, who moved to Chelsea after leading Italy to the European Championship quarterfinals.

Newly promoted Burnley quickly fell behind at Stamford Bridge when Eden Hazard shot from outside the area in the ninth minute, and Willian made it 2-0 in the 41st with a low shot after an assist from Diego Costa.

Pedro's cross set up Victor Moses for a third goal in the 89th.
