Burnley Beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

_41429265_frank_terry416

Championship side Burnley beat a moderately outfitted Chelsea team on penalties at Stamford Bridge, eliminating them from the Carling Cup.

The Chelsea side, which included Frank Lampard, Deco, Salomon Kalou, Didier Drogba, and John Obi Mikel at various points, went 1-0 up on 27 minutes with a goal from Drogba.  Ade Akinbiyi equalized for Burnley in the 69th.  Despite an onslaught of Chelsea attempts, they could not put a winner into the net.

Truthfully, Chelsea might benefit from the lightened fixture congestion, but never, even to a weakened side, should they lose to a lower league team at home.
