Higuain Ends Goal Drought In Burnley Draw



Gonzalo Higuain

Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain was one of the goalscorers as the Blues played out a 2-2 draw with Burnley in their Premier League clash on Monday night.

Higuain and Chelsea missed out on the opportunity to take a big step towards achieving a top-four finish in the Premier League.

A win would have taken the Stamford Bridge outfit as high as third spot on the league table.

Chelsea were stunned in the opening ten minutes of the home game with Burnley when the Clarets took a surprising lead.

Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick scored the first goal of the game after eight minutes before Chelsea scored two quickfire goals to turn the game on its head.

French World Cup winner N’Golo Kante equalised for the hosts on 12 minutes before the aforementioned Higuain added a second goal two minutes later.

Gonzalo Higuain ended a six-game wait for a Premier League goal against the Clarets.

His last goal came in the 2-1 away win over Fulham in their West London Derby clash in March.

His strike gave Chelsea the lead for the first time but the lead didn’t last for long after Ashley Barnes hit the equaliser in the 24th minute.

Chelsea pressed for a winning goal for the rest of the game but Burnley were resolute as they held on for a 2-2 draw.
