Chelsea 2-2 Burnley: Blues miss golden opportunity to climb above Tottenham into third

Chelsea spurned a glorious chance to go third in the Premier League after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley.

Four goals inside the opening 24 minutes set the tone for a pulsating encounter, but the Blues were unable to find a winner which would’ve provided a huge boost to their top-four hopes.
