      Half-time at Turf Moor. In this entertaining Premier League match, Chelsea have not had things all their own way as they go into the break at 1-1 against the hosts Burnley. Pedro and Robbie Brady on target for their respective sides so far. Seconc period to come.

      The last clash between Burnley and Chelsea took place earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge. On that occasion at the end of August, the Blues secured the three points after a 3-0 win, with Hazard, Willian, and Victor Moses all getting on the scoresheet.

      Burnley have been excellent since being promoted as Championship winners last year, are are placed comfortably in 13th currently – nine points clear of the relegation zone.

      Can anyone stop Antonio Conte's men? Chelsea are currently flying high at the summit of the English top-flight, nine points clear of their nearest rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham. Indeed, should they claim the victory this afternoon against Burnley, they will extend that lead to a comprehensive 12 poi

      Good afternoon football fans! Welcome to LIVE coverage of the English Premier League clash between Burnley and Chelsea from Turf Moor.

      As perhaps expected, Chelsea are dominating possession in these early stages with Burnley opting to sit deep and soak up the pressure. The rain and sleet is peppering the pitch, and has been all morning, so there will be that little bit more of a slick element with passes on the deck.
    • 5'
      SAVE FROM HEATON! Costa turns sharply in the middle of the pitch and moves into space before releasing a lovely pass in behind the Burnley backline. Hazard latches on and just gains a yard on the defender to pull the trigger, but it is an uncharacteristically poor connection from the Belgian as he a

      GOOOOOAAAALLLL FOR CHELSEA! A blistering start from the Blues! Moses picks up the ball in plenty of space down the right channel and does superbly well to shake off the attentions of Brady before moving into the final third. He shows composure to send a pass in to the feet of Pedro, who jinks past t

      Not the best start to proceedings for Burnley, then. As mentioned previously, they have never defeated Chelsea in the Premier League, and have actually lost every time in which they have conceded the first goal against the Blues. Sean Dyche's charges will need to stop that rot if they are to get som
    • 11'
      The home side really need to be careful now, as with the Turf Moor faithful encouraging them to flood forward for the equaliser, they are opening up massive gaps in behind the defence. This may be playing straight into the hands of Costa, Pedro, and Hazard.
    • 13'
      Westwood wins the ball well in midfield and makes a few strides forward before threading a pass up top for Gray, who just attempts to skip past Azpilicueta to burst into space on the right channel. The Spaniard gains possession back for Chelsea, however, after a wonderful, clean slide tackle.
    • 15'
      There has been a cracking tempo to the start of the match and it is making for quite the watch. Pretty unclear whether the chaotic nature of the play goes more in favour of Chelsea or indeed Burnley, but at the moment Conte's men are certainly looking extremely confident going forward.
    • 17'
      A slight worry for Chelsea at the moment as it looks like David Luiz may be struggling with a knock. He has reportedly been struggling with a slight knee injury over the past few weeks so this problem may have caught up with the Brazilian, but he is bravely continuing, for now at least.
    • 19'
      Much better from Burnley this time as Gray holds off the attentions of the defender on the edge of the box to nick a pass into the feet of Barnes. The resulting strike from the centre-forward is slashed fairly wide of the right-hand post, but the intentions from the attacking duo get a quick clap fr
    • 21'
      Very neat from Chelsea down the right wing as Azpilicueta, Moses, and Kante all link-up with a series of short, stabbed passes to feet. The move comes to a quick halt though as the Nigerian international's attempted bursting dribble into the box is intercepted by Ward and Mee.
    • 23'
      The visitors get a little sloppy just in front of the defence and it is Matic who is the guilty party as he surrenders possession before fouling Barton in an attempt to get it back. Burnley get the free-kick in a cracking position around 30 yards out.

    • 24'
      GOOOOAAAAALLL! GOOOAAALLL FOR BURNLEY! The home side are back on level terms as from the resulting free-kick from the Matic foul, Brady steps up to whip an absolutely outstanding strike into the top left corner! Courtois no chance! One-one.
    • 26'
      Brady is Burnley's record signing after coming in from Norwich in January and it appears to be money well-spent if he can pick out a few moments like that in a season, especially against the current champions-elect. It really was the most perfectly-taken free-kick!
    • 28'
      Gray utilises his electric speed to drive into space down the left wing to latch on to a pass over the top from Barton. He steps up against the toiling Luiz and gains a yard to fire a teasing cross along the penalty area, but Barnes is unable to make up the ground to turn a strike into the empty net
    • 30'
      That goal from Burnley has given them bags of confidence now, and it has actually affected Chelsea a little bit too as Conte's men have lost a little bit of the tempo in their passing in the final third. The talented front three of the visitors have been quiet in the past 10 minutes or so.
    • 32'
      Hazard comes deep to see bit more possession now and turns to face goal before exchanging a neat one-two with Costa. The Belgian attempts then to curl a pass in behind the full-back for the onrushing Alonso, but ball is drastically overhit which results in Burnley being let off the hook with the goa
    • 34'
      A good period of sustained possession from Chelsea at the moment and it is coming in and around the Burnley box. Quite a few neat passes exchanged without much penetration, but again Burnley are let off a bit easily as Cahill needlessly commits the foul on Barton to get the Clarets the cheap free-ki
    • 36'
      SAAAAVE FROM COURTOIS! Barton collects the ball to feet around 25 yards out and shows lovely composure to pop a pass round the corner for Lowton, who then finds himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper. The Belgian stopper comes out on top on this occasion with the save with his feet!
    • 38'
      The game is really entertaining and frantic at the moment but again, Burnley need to be careful as Chelsea are looking a threat on the counter. This time, Alonso picks up the ball deep down the left wing before curling a cross ominously to the back post, but before Hazard can get on the end of it Me
    • 40'
      It was only a matter of time before Costa and Barton crossed each other's paths with their particular battling personalities. This altercation in question is fairly mundane considering the duo involved as they just exchange a few words, but you would be surprised if that is the last interaction befo
    • 42'
      Even with Chelsea's domination of possession, they actually haven't been able to test Heaton too much between the sticks. The Englishman stopped a relatively easy shot from Hazard early on and then picked the ball out of his own net following Pedro's goal, but apart from that he hasn't seen a lot of
    • 44'
      One minute of added time has been allocated by the referee which sounds about right as there hasn't been too many stoppages. Burney, admirably, look like they are going to make it into the break all-square.

      We are back under way in this Premier League clash!
    • 48'
      EARLY SAVE FROM COURTOIS! Barnes just nudges the ball away from Cahill which allows him to gallop into space on the right channel. The subsequent pass looks like it is going to be intercepted by Luiz, only for the Brazilian to misjudge it which allows Gray the free attempt on goal! However, the Chel
    • 50'
      Good start to the second half from Burnley who have came out from the break with a spring in their step. Barnes and Gray in particular are causing plenty of problems for the opposition defence and look decent value to get on the end of any crosses swung into the penalty box.
    • 52'
      Mee languishes in possession for too long at the back which allows Costa to pounce in a very dangerous position. The former Atletico man then twists and turns his way into the box before looking to get a shot away, but by the time he is ready to pull the trigger the Burnley defence recovers to make
    • 54'
      Burnely just look like they are about to break free on the counter as Barnes controls well from a lofted pass to the right wing, but Chelsea recover possession quickly as the excellent Kante comes in to make the strong tackle before passing forward again. What a midfielder this man is! He barely put
    • 56'
      Chelsea are just a little bit sluggish at the moment, with their passing inside the Burnley half leaving a lot to be desired. They have had two or three promising moves break down due to bits of lazy possession within the past 10 minutes or so, but they'll find their feet again soon you would think.
    • 58'
      Alonso and Moses need to take more care with their crosses into the box as in terms of aerial deliveries, Costa has been feeding off scraps for the majority of the game. Plenty of balls are being flung into the area, but Mee and Keane have gobbled most of them up with headed clearances.
    • 60'
      AZPILICUETA! HOW CLOSE WAS THAT?! The Spain international collects possession in midfield and moves forward into space unopposed before deciding to try his luck with a strike on goal. He unleashes a beautiful, driven shot which looks destined to find the top corner, only to just rise too much at the
    • 62'
      Burnley, as mentioned before, came flying out of the blocks after the break but they have just lost that tempo in recent moments with Chelsea again now looking the much more dominant side, in possession at least.
    • 64'
      First change of the match now and it comes from Dyche. Leaving the action is Brady, who may just be carrying a knock as he grimaces on his way off the pitch, with his replacement being Scott Arfield.
    • 65'
      SI S. Arfield SO V. Moses
    • 66'
      We are just approaching the midway point of the half now and with each passing moment Chelsea are looking the more likely side to find the elusive winning goal. Burnley are still posing a threat though so it could easily go the other way too!
    • 67'
      SI Fàbregas SO V. Moses
    • 67'
      Conte makes a change now as Fabregas comes on for Matic.
    • 69'
      First booking of the match is just about the most obvious one you will see all weekend as Westwood cynically hacks down Hazard after previously giving the ball away in a dangerous position inside his own half. Chelsea get the free-kick, which Fabregas will take on the left channel.
    • 71'
      Chelsea counter down the left and Alonso makes his way into space before flashing a cross into the box which is easily cleared at the back post. Hazard is lurking around 25 yards out and collects the loose possession before attempting to curl a strike high towards goal, but it is a bad miscue from h
    • 72'
      SI Willian SO V. Moses
    • 72'
      Another change now as Willian replaces Moses. It looks like Chelsea may be changing to a 4-4-2 formation now.
    • 74'
      Another slightly poor clearance reaches Hazard on the right wing. The Belgian jinks his way into the box, with Mee very nearly conceding the foul, before looking to curl a pass across the box for Alonso in space, but again it is all too easy for Keane to make the interception on this occasion.
    • 75'
      David Luiz goes into the book for throwing a bit of dissent towards the referee and linesman.
    • 77'
      The bookings are coming thick and fast at Turf Moor now and the latest guilty party is Lowton as he completely takes out Pedro on the left wing to halt a potential Chelsea counter. Deserved yellow.
    • 79'
      We are just entering the last 10 minutes of play here and we should be in for a grandstand finish if they game continues to open up. Chelsea are certainly bombing forward looking for the winner with Conte even making a couple of pretty attacking changes, and Burnley do have previous for conceding la
    • 81'
      Second alteration of the game from Dyche now and to be fair to the Burnley boss, he does not appear to be shutting up shop to try and claim the point. A striker comes on for a striker as Sam Vokes enters the action to replace Gray.
    • 82'
      SI S. Vokes SO V. Moses
    • 83'
      Willian fires a cross to the back post and Mee gets a little lucky with the clearance as it actually comes off the back of his heel to block the route to Pedro. Luckily for the Burnley defender, he has a team-mate in the form of Lowton to cover in behind and make the more commanding clearance out of
    • 85'
      Should Chelsea fail to win today, it will be interesting to see how Conte views the performance. They have been so blisteringly good this campaign that any sign of the tempo dropping will be harsly scrutinised, and it has to be said that his players have been a bit sluggish going forward this aftern
    • 87'
      SI M. Batshuayi SO V. Moses
    • 87'
      Last throw of the dice from the former Juventus boss now as he makes his third and final change, and again it is another positive one. Michy Batshuayi is given his customary couple of minutes to try and impress off the bench, with Pedro the man heading to the dugout.
    • 88'
      It wouldn't be a battling Burnley performance without Barton getting a booking, so he fails to buck the trend after seeing yellow for an extremely late tackle on Willian inside the centre circle.
    • 89'
      Fabregas is the latest player to see yellow after hauling down someone to stop a promising Burnley attack.
    • 90'
      Chelsea look like they are the team who will be attacking in this final minute, but Burnley have reverted deep into defensive positions where they have defended well up until now. Any speculative balls thrown up top will likely be dealt with by Keane or Mee, with the former in particular showing his
    • 90'
      FOUR minutes of added time have been allocated by the referee which catalyses an encouraging cheer from the Turf Moor faithful who actually seem to want the Clarets to bomb forward to try and get the winner! What a story that would be if they somehow manage it...
