Chelsea clinch third place in the Premier

MADRID, 19 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

Chelsea left the third position of the Premier League tied after drawing this Thursday with Leicester City (1-1) in a match postponed from matchday 27, while Burnley added a vital point to leave the relegation places in the absence of one day for the final honk of the season.

At Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel's side began trailing with a goal from James Maddison after six minutes, but Spaniard Marcos Alonso equalized after half an hour into the game. In the second part, despite the insistence of the 'blues', the tie did not move from the scoreboard.

In this way, Chelsea remains third with a three-point advantage over Tottenham, who has won the goal difference by almost 20 goals. A point that virtually leaves the Londoners in third position and Leicester say goodbye to any chance of reaching the European places next season.

In addition, Burnley took a very valuable point to face the final day out of relegation, even if they face Liverpool. Ashley Barnes scored a penalty for the visitors and Emiliano Buendía left the final 1-1 for the 'villains'.

For their part, Everton certified their permanence in the Premier after defeating Crystal Palace 3-2. The 'toffees' signed an incredible comeback in the second half with goals from Keane, Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.
