Chelsea have missed the chance to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League as Thomas Tuchel’s side were held by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea dominated throughout but their misfiring attack in front of goal eventually allowed Burnley to snatch a late point.

The Blues looked to kick into gear from the start as Nick Pope clawed away from Callum Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen flashed a header just wide.

But despite Burnley showing a few flashes of intent it was the hosts edged in front before the break.

Reece James’ cross in from the right was a peach and Kai Havertz slipped him man to power past Pope.

However, as Chelsea pushed hard for a second after the break, they were left frustrated as Thiago Silva headed against the post and Pope again denied Hudson-Odoi.

But with the Clarets resistance holding firm, Sean Dyche’s side grabbed their one real chance.

Jay Rodriguez broke the Chelsea offside trap inside the box and his knockdown was turned home by Matej Vydra.

Full Time from Stamford Bridge it’s Chelsea 1-1 Burnley
