Despite Lorenz Assignon being shown two yellow cards in the opening 40 minutes and manager Vincent Kompany dismissed for his reaction, Burnley showed impressive fighting spirit to come from behind twice as they secured a vital Premier League point against Chelsea.

Josh Cullen's superb volley came two minutes into the second half and Dara O'Shea headed in Burnley's second equaliser three minutes after Cole Palmer had put the Blues in front again.

While Burnley's poor discipline in games means they have been shown six red cards in the league this term, the most of any team, they fought hard for and deserved their point against Chelsea.

Being down to 10-men did not affect the away side who had 18 shots in the contest and Jay Rodriguez had a chance to win it late on when his header thumped against the bar and he was unable to turn the rebound home.

The Clarets are unbeaten in three league games for the first time under Kompany (W1 D2), their longest such run in the competition since April 2022 (four games).

They are 19th in the table, four points behind 17th-placed Nottingham Forest.
