Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain was angry for being taken off as Chelsea sought for a winning goal in the game against Burnley.

Higuain was in fine form for that game and scored the second goal for Chelsea in what was a very frustrating clash for the Blues.

A win for Chelsea against the Clarets will have taken the Blues into third spot, but it was even Burnley who opened the scoring from a set play. Jeff Hendrick had scored the opener for Burnley as early as eight minutes into the game, before N’Golo Kante equalised for Chelsea four minutes afterwards. Higuain netted Chelsea’s second two minutes later to put Chelsea in front, as Ashley Barnes scored in the 24th minute to seal a 2-2 draw.

Higuain was sharp in the first half of the game and had a good performance, but he went missing in the second-half as Chelsea fought for the winner.

With the game entering its closing stages, Sarri opted to bring off Higuain and replace him with Olivier Giroud, but it was a decision that didn’t go down well with the Argentine.

Higuain went off angrily and as he sat down, a frustrated Higuain threw his bib and a bottle in anger in front of his teammates and Chelsea’s coaching staff.

Did Higuain have any right to be angry about being substituted?

Meanwhile, it wasn’t only Higuain who had an angry evening at Stamford Bridge, Maurizio Sarri was sent off during the game while Antonio Rudiger was involved in a heated touchline melee after the final whistle.

Rudiger lost his temper after the game due to the insults targeted at Sarri, and Chelsea goalkeeper coach Massimo Nenci and fitness coach Paolo Bertelli also got involved, and Burnley goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer had to be restrained by the tunnel entrance.
