Chelsea yesterday could have jumped two places higher in the Premiership standings as their three close competitors in the tournament, United, Arsenal and the Spurs, ended on the losing side in their encounters past weekend. If Chelsea had secured three points playing Burnley, they would have been able to displace Arsenal and the Spurs from their respective positions and would have positioned themselves at no. 3. But they were unexpectedly stopped on a draw by the visiting Clarets and they could have just one more point added to their tally. Although even with that one point, Chelsea managed to go past Arsenal with whom they were leveled with in terms of the no. of points and were trailing on the goal difference only, but they remained behind Tottenham.
