Chelsea 2-2 Burnley: Kante & CHO injured as Blues waste chance to go third

Burnley held on to a commendable 2-2

draw away to Chelsea, who

disappointingly dropped points again in

the top-four battle

Chelsea lost N’Golo Kante and Callum

Hudson-Odoi to injury as they missed an

opportunity to go third in the Premier

League in an entertaining 2-2 draw against

Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri’s men were hoping to

bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool

in their previous top-flight outing but they

dropped points once again and could be

facing key games against Manchester

United and Eintracht Frankfurt without

Kante.

Burnley – still yet to confirm their survival –

went ahead through Jeff Hendrick early on,

and although Kante and Gonzalo Higuain

saw Chelsea turn things around in the

space of two minutes, Ashley Barnes

pegged them back in an enthralling first

half.

Chelsea did much of the attacking after

the interval but Sarri – who was removed

from the sidelines in stoppage time – saw

his side fail to make the most of top-four

rivalsTottenham, Arsenal and United losing

at the weekend.
