Premier League: another failure for Chelsea, held in check by promoted Burnley

In front of their home crowd, Chelsea led twice and then came back as many times, against the promoted and current penultimate Burnley (2-2), although reduced to ten players before half-time. This poor performance is a stain for Mauricio Pochettino's team, eleventh in the standings in the final stretch of the season.

The “Blues” however seemed to be on a royal road after the expulsion and the penalty conceded by Lorenz Assignon, defender on loan from Rennes, for contact in the area with Mykhailo Mudryk. Cole Palmer transformed the sanction with a “Panenka” shot full axis (44th, 1-0).

But a clinical recovery from Josh Cullen (47th, 1-1) struck the Londoners, who then came close to correction on a header from Lyle Foster, pushed back by Djordje Petrovic (57th).

Palmer put Chelsea back in front by exploiting a subtle and decisive backheel from Raheem Sterling, who came on shortly before (78th, 2-1), but the advantage was short-lived: barely three minutes. From a corner, defender Dara O'Shea came to place a header which slipped between Petrovic's gloves (81st, 2-2).
