Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater, currently on loan at Burnley, started his first Premier League game for Burnley against Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Drinkwater’s last Premier League start was 639 days ago away at Manchester City under Antonio Conte.

The midfielder failed to play a competitive game for Chelsea under former boss Maurizio Sarri, who believed Drinkwater wasn’t good enough to play in his system.

Drinkwater was withdrawn after 59 minutes against Manchester City.
