Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is currently on loan at Premier League side Burnley.

The 29 year old midfielder failed to make a competitive appearance for Chelsea last season and is hoping to use his loan spell at Burnley to kickstart his career.

Drinkwater has failed to make an appearance for Burnley in the Premier League so far but he was given his debut for the club on Wednesday as Burnley hosted Sunderland in the Carabao Cup.

With Burnley leading Sunderland 1-0, Drinkwater’s error led to Sunderland’s equaliser.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has refused to blame Drinkwater for the error he made on his Burnley debut.

“I’m not really going to question Drinky, we know he needs football, he knows he needs football as well,” Dyche said, according to FourFourTwo. “He hasn’t played a lot, he’s getting used to the players around him so that’s a different thing.

“He stuck at it, he’s got through the 90 minutes which is really important. I’m not really judging him in amongst our pack, that’s for sure, not just on one performance. He’s tried to be diligent, tried to be honest. It’s not just down to his mistake, we weren’t quite sorted out to stop it, even with a mistake.”
