Chelsea have moved up to fourth in the Premier League table after a comfortable win over Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Blues suffered a blow before kick-off, losing Christian Pulisic to injury once again as he pulled up in the warm-up.
But once the action was underway, it was plain sailing for the Frank Lampard 's men who impressed from the outset.
Hakim Ziyech netted the opener, adding to his debut strike against Krasnodar earlier this week.
And the former Ajax man turned provider when Timo Werner made it three, just minutes after Kurt Zouma had doubled Chelsea's lead with a bullet header.
So who were the winners and losers from the west London side's clearcut victory?
Two goals in first two competitive starts for Chelsea means Ziyech is the first player to achieve this feat since Diego Costa.
Ziyech was on the scoresheet in Russia this week and hit the target early doors this afternoon to get Chelsea off to a flying start.
His arrival over the summer had fans excited but injury meant a delayed start to life in England.
Supporters will be hoping he can stay fit and continue his fine form.
After a debut to forget, Thiago Silva has provided the stability needed in Chelsea's defence.
The 36-year-old's experienced head is working wonders for Lampard's side, who haven't conceded in four games.
In the first-half of today's win, Silva alone had more completed passes, touches and fouls won for the away side.
He also won all of his aerial duels in the opening 45 minutes.
Okay, the Frenchman scored Chelsea's second.
But Zouma was once again extremely ropey at the back.
The 26-year-old looked shaky throughout, especially next to Silva – who remained calm throughout.
Is there suddenly a way back for Antonio Rudiger?
Pulisic just can't catch a break this season.
After missing the start of the campaign through injury, the US international has been back in the fold of late.
But it looks as though once again Pulisic will be MIA for a while.
The winger was replaced by Timo Werner before kick-off, with the German netting Chelsea's third.
