BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Gary Neville has sent a warning to Chelsea owner after Chelsea 2:2 draw with 10-men Burnley He said ” I have said it again and again that there’s a very big problem in Chelsea something should be done even with the Red card they couldn’t the 3 point. Honestly the club is fading away gradually”. Blues can only draw 2-2 against relegation-haunted 10-man Burnley at the Bridge.


At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea faced off against Burnley in a match that ended with a 2-2 draw, prompting boos from the home crowd as Chelsea dropped crucial points against a seemingly non-threatening Burnley team, who played the second half with only 10 players. Despite their head coach’s belief that they should be fourth in the Premier League, Chelsea took the lead twice but failed to secure the win. Burnley even had opportunities to snatch victory, with a header from Jay Rodriguez hitting the Chelsea crossbar.

The performance raised questions about Chelsea’s ability to capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities, a recurring issue for the team. The need for improvement in both scoring and defensive capabilities was evident, as Chelsea struggled to contain an opposition they perceived as cheeky.

The match began favorably for Burnley, who capitalized on Chelsea’s lack of attacking threat to gain confidence in their own abilities. However, as Chelsea adopted a more counter-attacking approach, they began to assert themselves, with Enzo’s deflected shot prompting a save from Arijanet Muric.

Despite increasing pressure from Chelsea, including missed chances from Cole Palmer and a crucial save by Djordje Petrovic from Wilson Odobert, they struggled to find the back of the net. Nicolas Jackson came close, only for Muric to deflect his shot over the crossbar. Chelsea finally broke the deadlock when Axel Disasi headed home from close range, but VAR intervened to disallow the goal due to a possible handball.

The match took a dramatic turn when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for a shoulder charge on Mykhailo Mudryk, resulting in Vitinho receiving a second yellow card and subsequent red card. Despite protests from Burnley manager Vincent Kompany, VAR upheld the decision. Kompany himself was also sent off for his protests.

After the match resumed, Palmer added insult to injury for Burnley by scoring with a Panenka just before halftime. Chelsea made no changes at halftime, but Burnley shocked them by scoring a terrific goal early in the second half, with Josh Cullen finding the net.

To regain control, Pochettino substituted Noni for skipper Conor Gallagher, and Chelsea piled on the pressure, with Raheem Sterling entering the fray. Muric continued to impress for Burnley, denying Palmer’s efforts on goal.

Palmer eventually redeemed himself by equalizing for Chelsea, but their defensive frailties were exposed once again as Dara O’Shea scored from a corner. Sterling missed a golden opportunity to win the game for Chelsea, heading wide with only the keeper to beat.

Alfie Gilchrist replaced the injured Gusto for Burnley, but neither team could find a winning goal, much to the relief of Chelsea fans and players.

The lineups for both teams were as follows:

– Petrovic, Disasi, Cucurella, Badiashile, Enzo, Mudryk, Jackson, Palmer, Gallagher, Caicedo, Gusto

Subs: Bettinelli, Silva, Sterling, Noni, Casadei, Deivid, Gilchrist, Tauriaiinen, Acheampong

– Muric, O’Shea, Berge, Foster, Assignon, Vitinho, Cullen, Amdouni, Esteve, Larsen, Odobert

Subs: Trafford, Taylor, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Rodriguez, Manuel, Ekdal, Tresor
