Chelsea drop points against Burnley

Chelsea dropped two points against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Kai Havertz had put the host ahead after 33 minutes but failed to capitalise on their dominance to score more goals.

Mendy conceded today.

With 25 shots and 14 corners, Chelsea pegged Burnley back all afternoon but Sean Dyche’s men restricted Thomas Tuchel’s men for large parts of the game, thanks to very compact defending.

But with just 11 minutes to go, Burnley made the League leaders pay after a series of crosses completely caught Chelsea’s backline off guard, leaving Vydra to draw the visitors level.

Vydra left Mendy with no chance.

The goal marked the first time Chelsea conceded a goal from open play, and just the third time they have dropped points since the season began.

They still sit top of the League on 26 points, 3 ahead of second place City. But Liverpool can reduce that gap to just one point if they come away from the London Stadium when they take on fourth placed West Ham on Sunday evening.
