The leader of the English Championship conceded a draw on Saturday at home against Burnley (1-1).
After seven consecutive successes in all competitions, Chelsea has been braked on Saturday on home soil by a relegation team (18e) before kick-off. Yet in the absence of Lukaku and Werner, Havertz had perfectly assured the interim in attack in this meeting of the 11th day against Burnley.
The young German opened the scoring with an unstoppable sharp header (1-0, 33e), at the reception of a center of James, concretizing the domination of the men of Thomas Tuchel. Hudson-Odoi (4e), Christensen (7e) and Pope’s reflex arrest (29e) symbolized the strength of the Blues.

Chelsea continued to hurt their opponents in the second half, a post found by Thiago Silva on a corner (50e) and new opportunity for Hudson-Odoi (65e) but Burnley hung on. Sean Dyche’s training did well.
Cornet’s teammates equalized by Otter, his first goal this season in the Premier League (1-1, 79e), and the first in the game cashed by Londoners. Chelsea’s failure allows Manchester City to return to three points in the standings.
Liverpool, traveling to West Ham United on Sunday, can also make a reconciliation.
