"There are six teams who can win the league and anything can happen until the end".
Only Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal have better home score than Burnley. If there's any good news, it's that Burnley will have a home field advantage, as the Pensioners are headed to Turf Moor for this match. They did beat them on penalties in the fourth round of the 2008-09 League Cup. From the outside, I think he's got a bit of everything.
Robbie Brady will be the talk of the town following his first-half equaliser against Chelsea at Turf Moor on Sunday. Hazard and Pedro swopped flanks in the second half but, before the break, 23 of Hazard's 51 touches in open play were in the right-half of the field. "You need an underlying culture, a team unity for that".
Chelsea: Courtois 8; Azpilicueta 7, David Luiz 7, Cahill 7; Moses 7, Kante 7, Matic 6, Alonso 6; Pedro 6, Diego Costa 6, Hazard 7. So, with a trip to Burnley on Sunday, you'd expect the former Juventus man to know everything about his opponents, wouldn't you?
Chelsea coped well in hard conditions against Burnley, who have turned their Turf Moor base into a fortress this term. You are playing against the top end of the market.
Brady capped a solid performance with an impressive goal and Dyche was quick to praise the Republic of Ireland worldwide, who joined Burnley from Norwich during the January window. Those passes had a goal.
"This game was very tough". They stretched the play.
Chelsea will be without John Terry after the club captain picked up an ankle injury but he probably wouldn't have made the starting eleven if fit.
"I'm very pleased with our mentality, there's growth in the side and they are maturing as individuals with more assuredness to handle days like these". The Clarets had more time to recover and get numbers back to hassle them outside their own area. Yet, with only nine victories under their belt, Burnley's not really going to make a run for the EPL title, now are they?
But Dyche's side did well at that too. The Italian way is very structured, very organised. We found a team that tried to disrupt our football, to play these long-balls and to fight the second balls. The Clarets are third in the home table with 28 points, only bettered by Spurs with 32 and Chelsea with 33 points.
"In the last game, I wanted to give him the great applause of our fans because I think he deserved this, for the game that he played - not only with the ball, but above all without the ball".
