Burnley boss Sean Dyche admitted after the 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday that the Blues were all over Burnley in the first half.

Dyche hailed Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope for making great saves to deny Chelsea and ensure the Blues didn’t score a second goal that our dominance deserved.

Dyche told BBC Sport: “The lads worked terrifically hard. They’re a top side. They were all over us in the first half. We hung in there really, great saves by Nick Pope.

“We felt the game might calm slightly and we found better moments in the second half.

“When you come to these clubs and they’re flying like they are, you might need your keeper to play well. He was fantastic.

“I can’t credit Chelsea enough. They’re a top outfit. You stay in it for a chance.”
