Premier League league leaders Chelsea were held at Turf Moor on Sunday, with Burnley getting a deserved share of the spoils after another impressive display on home soil.

Robbie Brady was the goalscorer for the Clarets, with the sub firing home an exquisite free-kick in the second-half.

The Blues were looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 12 points, and took the lead early on, with Pedro providing the cutting edge to a fine break.

Chelsea continued to have the lion’s share of the ball throughout the game but were thwarted by a trademark hardworking and organised display from Burnley.

Then, on 24 minutes, Republic of Ireland international Brady, on his full debut for his new club, leveled the scores via a superb free-kick.

In the second-half, the visitors didn’t muster a single shot on target as Burnley stood firm. Indeed, Andre Gray had a great chance to put the Clarets ahead when one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois, only to be thwarted by the Belgian ‘keeper.

The result sees Antonio Conte’s side go 10 points clear of Tottenham and Arsenal, with a title success in his first season in English football still looking very, very likely.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley, thanks to their superb home form, go 12th.
