The Blues should have been well out in front before Matej Vydra’s 80th-minute equaliser, having squandered countless opportunities to go up 4-0 before being pegged back.

Chelsea had 70 percent control and 25 attempts, but only managed four on target and one goal through Kai Havertz’s first-half header, as a combination of Pope’s heroics and the home side’s poor finishing cost them the victory.

The Blues are currently top of the Premier League going into the international break, but if they win their game in hand against West Ham on Sunday afternoon, the distance to Liverpool could be as little as a point.

Tuchel accepts that his team was fortunate to keep a clean sheet during a win at Brentford last month, but feels that Burnley had luck on their side on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. “Very lucky but it’s football,” the Chelsea head coach said.

“Was it a fluke that we kept a clean sheet against Brentford? Without a doubt. As a result, everyone enjoys the game since it is feasible to win matches.”

Despite surrendering points for the first time in almost a month, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel stated that he was pleased with what he saw from his team, despite their poor goal-scoring.

“I’m sticking to my feelings on the bench; the data we have now shows that we had a great match.” Tuchel said, “I loved the attitude and attention levels.”

“Coming off a seven-game winning streak in the Champions League, we needed to put in a lot of effort to keep the game under control against Burnley.”

“I am pleased because it was a fantastic effort.” This is something that happens in football from time to time. At Brentford, we were fortunate to come away with a clean sheet. They struck it rich today.”
