Chelsea struggle against 10-man Burnley

Chelsea vs Burnley

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino had claimed before the game against Burnley, that Chelsea have improved massively and should be in the top four.

However, the result against relegation-threatened Burnley was far from impressive.

Chelsea and Burnley played a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, despite the Clarets being a man down all through the second-half.

Axel Disasi had a goal ruled out for handball just after 20 minutes of play.

Lorenz Assignon would concede a penalty and a second yellow card just before half-time. The penalty was coolly dispatched by Cole Palmer, with a cheeky panenka goal.

Josh Cullen scored the equaliser for the visitors just immediately after the restart.

Chelsea piled on the pressure and got a goal in the 78th minute following a brilliant connection between Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling.

With Chelsea looking like they were taking all three points home, Josh Cullen assisted Dara O’Shea Burnley’s second goal from a corner kick. Blues goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic failed to punch away a header from the Burnley player, in what was a disastrous error from the goalkeeper.

Interestingly, Chelsea could easily have lost the game, as Jay Rodriguez firmly headed the ball onto the bar shortly afterwards.

It’s surprising Chelsea couldn’t win this game against a Burnley side who were down by a man all through the second-half.
