It was a disappointing evening at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, as Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Chelsea had dominated the game from start to finish but somehow conceded a late goal to take only one point.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel wasn’t disappointed with the display from the team and likened the game to the Brentford clash which saw Edouard Mendy make a number of saves to keep Chelsea’s lead intact.

Against Burnley, it was goalkeeper Nick Pope who was in fine form as he made several good saves to deny Chelsea from scoring a second goal.

Tuchel said: “We came from an away game in the Champions League and we played a team like Burnley who always puts long balls into your box and you must keep them out of your box, and on that level we collected the first and second balls. You need to do so much invisible work as a team on such a high level to control a match like this, to create so many chances.

“So it was a fantastic effort and fantastic performance. I’m super happy. It can happen in football that sometimes, unfortunately like today, somebody else steals some points. Like I said, we have been lucky in Brentford to walk away with a clean sheet. Burnley are lucky today to get the result but it happens sometimes.”
