Another disappointing match for Chelsea after losing two valuable points in the Champions League qualification journey after Burnley’s amazing defensive performance, such as the Italian teams.
Chelsea conceded at the beginning, where they were able to equalize and lead the scoreline by N’Golo Kante, who left injured before the second half, and Gonzalo Higuain, who left frustrated and his reaction will be in the English press for a while.
Chelsea couldn’t convince today, in the attack and defense were they suffered to score and struggled in the defense as well. Moreover, Maurizio Sarri was kicked by the referee at the end of the match.
