Chelsea 1-1 Burnley – Carling Cup – Highlights

Championship side Burnley stunned Premier League leaders Chelsea after a dramatic penalty shoot-out at Stamford Bridge in the Carling Cup fourth round.

Burnley keeper Brian Jensen was the hero after he dived full-stretch to divert Jon Mikel Obi’s decisive penalty to safety.

Didier Drogba had given Chelsea a first-half lead with a sumptuous finish from a Frank Lampard pass.

But a spirited second-half from Burnley saw Ade Akinbiyi sweep in an equaliser.

Chelsea made six changes to the side that defeated Blackburn 2-0 at the weekend, with striker Drogba recalled to the starting line-up after overcoming his recent injury problems.

But it was Burnley who started brightly, and forced Chelsea onto the counter-attack in the early stages, with Chris Eagles and Joey Gudjonsson looking the most likely to break the Blues’ rearguard.
