Chelsea player ratings vs Burnley as Palmer imperious, Sterling impact but Gallagher disappoints

Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw by a 10-man Burnley team in a poor performance at Stamford Bridge.

Mauricio Pochettino implemented three alterations to the lineup that emerged victorious against Leicester City nearly two weeks ago, and the club commenced the match in a promising manner. Axel Disasi believed he had scored for the home team in the first half, but his goal was disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) due to a handball.

Nevertheless, the Blues managed to secure the advantage before the half-time siren. Following Mykhailo Mudryk’s foul in the penalty area, Lorenz Assignon received a direct red card for the away team.

Vincent Kompany, the manager of Burnley, was quite angry at the decision and received a red card for expressing his dissatisfaction. Cole Palmer delicately chipped the ball from a distance of 12 yards and skillfully scored, giving Chelsea the lead with his characteristic composed and precise finish.

However, the Clarets managed to score an equalizer early in the second half through a remarkable goal by Josh Cullen from outside the penalty area. However, Chelsea regained the lead later in the game with another goal by Palmer.
