"It's a pity because we started very well, we kept the situation under control and also created many chances to score the goal in this time, maybe we can kill the game but it didn't happen".
The Clarets have not beaten Chelsea in league play since a 3-0 win April 23, 1983, when the sides toiled in Division Two.
The Nigeria global picked up a loose ball in his own half and drove forward on a marauding run at the home sides' defence before laying off a fizzing ball to Pedro.
"I think he deserved this for the game that he played, not only with the ball, but above all without the ball". When they defend deep, their opponents will need a physical presence in the penalty area to cause the stingy-at-home Burnley defence some problems.
Sean Dyche feels Burnley's point against runaway Premier League leaders shows how far they have come. They are in for a tough game.
Costa was left out of Chelsea's matchday squad for the victory at Leicester City on January 14, but has since returned to the side as Chelsea has continued to stretch its lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea are always well organised under Conte as well, of course, but they struggled to control the game because of Burnley's approach.
Antonio Conte chose to look for positives on a day his Chelsea side missed the chance to go 12 points clear at the top of the table.
"I have enough experience to know this".
"We have to think only about ourselves, not to look at others".
Defender Michael Keane believes Sunday's clash with Chelsea is the flawless test for Burnley and their strong home record. Both of these teams tend to produce definitive results so a stalemate looks an unlikely outcome.
Conte's men have extended their lead at the top of the table to 10 points, but it could be cut to eight if Manchester City defeat Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Monday night. "It's good if the players want to go and relax in different countries - the most important thing for me is that they come back in the right way, with the right attitude and the right behaviour". Eden Hazard's masterful goal in which he successfully took on four defenders before ripping a right-footed shot past Petr Cech could very well wind up being the goal of the season. "We had a golden chance with Matt Lowton where their keeper makes a good save, Andre's is a decent chance, but it's coming across at a hard angle, but I was pleased with the mentality, organisation and some of the individual performances".
