March 30, (THEWILL)- Chelsea’s climb up the English Premier League table suffered another setback as a stubborn 10-man Burnley fought back twice to snatch a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. Vincent Kompany’s spirited side displayed their never-say-die attitude, leaving Mauricio Pochettino’s men to rue dropped points in the run-in of this campaign.

The Blues appeared in control after Cole Palmer’s cheeky panenka penalty and a red card for Lorenz Assignon and manager Vincent Kompany put the visitors on the back foot. However, Josh Cullen’s thunderbolt volley restored parity early in the second half, as Burnley continued to pose a consistent threat regardless of their numerical disadvantage.

Despite regaining the lead through Raheem Sterling’s clever assist for Palmer’s second, Chelsea could not put the game to bed. Dara O’Shea’s glancing header from Cullen’s corner ensured the spoils were shared, as Burnley displayed remarkable resilience to frustrate their more illustrious opponents.

The hard-fought stalemate leaves Chelsea out of the top 10 in 11th place, with Pochettino’s tactics and squad depth facing renewed scrutiny. Burnley, meanwhile, will take heart from another gritty away performance even as their survival hopes remain dicey as the season enters its decisive phase.
