Burnley held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in a hard fought match

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 10 points after 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Pedro opened the scoring inside seven minutes before Robbie Brady scored a superb free-kick  to equalise on 24 minutes.

Chelsea stood up to Burnley’s challenge  and the wet conditions  and Thibaut Courtois made a couple of great saves in either half from Matt Lowton and Andre Gray to keep the Blues on course for the title.

Burnley had won seven of their previous eight games at Turf Moor and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be satisfied to avoid becoming their latest scalp while increasing their lead in the title race.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche will also be pleased that his side were able to show they were the equal of Chelsea over the 90 minutes as they consolidated their mid-table position.
