Burnley fans have hardly been enthusiastic about Chelsea loanee Danny Drinkwater after he was given a rare chance to play for them last night.

Drinkwater was brought to Burnley from Chelsea in the summer, but has had to wait patiently for a chance at Turf Moor.

 

The midfielder was thrown in at the deep end last night, as he was given a start during Burnley’s match against Manchester City.

The Clarets were hammered in the end, with Sean Dyche’s men losing 4-1 in the contest.

And the Chelsea loanee’s display hardly convinced supporters that he should be featuring more regularly.

Drinkwater appears to have very little future at Chelsea, even if he is able to impress between now and the end of the season.

The midfielder has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge, and his loan spell at Burnley is likely to be an opportunity for Drinkwater to put himself in the shop window.

Burnley are next in action against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, when it remains to be seen whether Drinkwater will keep his place again.
