Vydra stuns Blues as title race hots up

RED FACES for Chelsea and claret everywhere as Burnley enjoyed the last laugh on and off the pitch.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel had to swallow it in the dugout after clashing with opposite Burnley number Sean Dyche when really he should have directed his anger at his misfiring superstars.

Despite threatening to run away with the game in the first half, the Premier League leaders failed to land the knockout blow and then allowed a bottom three opposition to claw back a most unlikely point.

Burnley join Manchester City as the only teams to take any points off Chelsea at home this season to underline the magnitude of their performance today.

And the late shock means that while Tuchel’s team stays top of the table, their lead over second-placed City has been cut to three points.

There is now a two international week break to ponder and review how a game that was supposed to be a routine win threw up such an unexpected result.

It will be a comfortable fortnight for Dyche, not so for Tuchel who will be in at the training ground every day watching reruns of his players squandering chance after chance to put the opposition away only to let it all slip away.

Dyche’s double second half substitution was a piece of mastery which injected fresh legs into his team having watched his players cling on for the vast majority of the game.
