Both sides had a standout player that was key for them throughout the game. For Chelsea, Reece James was constantly involved and provided a brilliant cross for Kai Havertz to head home. He was always a threat for the home side and continued his form from recent weeks.

For Burnley, they can thank goalkeeper Nick Pope for his part in the draw. The number one made several stops to keep the away team in the game where Chelsea could have extended the lead and put the game out of sight. He made sure the Clarets stayed alive and was repaid with a late equaliser.

So where does that result leave Chelsea and Burnley? The Blues stay top on 26 points, but Manchester City have made ground after their Manchester derby win earlier today. Liverpool could also close the gap to just a one-point lead if they win this weekend.

As for Burnley, they are a point closer to safety, closing the gap to just two-points. It is a good point for Sean Dyche’s men, but a win elsewhere for Norwich could frustrate the Clarets.
