The Blues yet again on Monday night failed to grab the opportunity to move 3rd position in Premier League table and secure their Champions League spot as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
Maurizio Sarri’s side were well in the hunt for a top four finish, especially after Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal all lost during the weekend but failed.
A fantastic volley by Hendrick gave Burnley the breakthrough 8 minutes into the game. Chelsea only managed to clear a corner to the edge of the box, and Hendrick was there, unmarked, to thump it back at goal, giving Kepa no chance.
The Blues managed to restore parity 12 minutes on. Hazard with a bit of magic to tee up their equaliser. The Belgian twisted and turned his way away from his marker before laying back a neat pass, and Kante was there waiting to send a rasping strike into the roof of the net.
2 minutes later, higuain makes it 2-1, having bundled his way through, combining with Azpilicueta before hammering past Heaton.
24 minutes on the clock, Burnley grabbed their equalizer to make it 2-2 after a dreadful Chelsea defending from a set-piece allowedMee to head a ball back across goal, with Wood helping it into the path of Barnes, who stabbed in from point-blank range.
With all goals scored in first half, Chelsea failed to produce another in second half as both side shares the point.
The draw leave the Blues in 67 points as they set for battle Manchester United on May 2nd while Burnley grabs 41 points with a hope of leaving relegation zone, only if they beat Manchester City in their next game.
