The Blues after domination majority of the proceedings, failed to capitalize on their chances and Burnley made them pay in the 79th minute as Chelsea defense went asleep.

But Chelsea failed to get a second goal as Thiago Silva struck the post, while Nick Pope made a couple of great stops, including one to deny Callum Hudson-Odoi.

However, the Clarets were rewarded for their resilience as Jay Rodriguez was smart enough to pick out Vydra with a perfect header that allowed the forward to convert to earn his team a share of the spoils.Matej Vydra goal against Chelsea
