Another notable mention is that our captain Gary Cahill was making his 150th Premier League appearance.
Subs : Flanagan, Arfield, Vokes, Darikwa, Gumundsson, Tarkowski and Robinson
For the next ten minutes it was all a back and forth game where neither team were able to create any real chance.
In the 35th minute Burnley really broke Chelsea’s defense and had a really really good chance to score but Courtois was able to block it with his legs. That was seriously the most exciting moment in the entire first half. It proved that the home team were not going to make it easy for Chelsea.
The second half of the game was all about substitution after substitution and then it was booking after booking after booking as neither of the teams wanted to give even a single chance for the other team to take advantage. It was more of a battle of defense as the teams wanted to shout out loud YOU ARE NOT GETTING PAST ME.
Even with four minutes of added time neither of the teams could find a break and in the end the stats were similar as the first half with Burnley managing an extra shot at goal.
It was nothing short of a battle and one heck of a football match that was nothing short of entertaining.
Chelsea still remain on top and even if Manchester City with their match against Bournemouth and climb up to second place, Chelsea will still be having a 8 point lead.
