Loading… Journeyman Danny Drinkwater has returned to Chelsea after a very uninteresting loan spell at Burnley. The England midfielder Drinkwater joined the Clarets in August after making only five league starts for Chelsea following a £35million move from Leicester in 2017. Dyche said the nightclub incident had prevented Drinkwater from making his mark in Lancashire. “He’s been a credit to himself with the way his professionalism has been, other than the incident,” Dyche said before the FA Cup tie with Peterborough. Drink water back in Chelsea will he get a chance? “The way he’s recovered from that, the way he’s looked after himself, he’s tried to be part of the group. “We just haven’t got him as much game-time as what he wanted, and what he needs as well.

Drinkwater managed just 59 minutes in the Premier League, in the 4-1 home defeat to Manchester City last month, after playing in the Carabao Cup defeat to Sunderland in August. “He just hasn’t had the pitch-time,” said Burnley manager Sean Dyche, confirming that Drinkwater will return to Chelsea when his loan deal expires on Monday. “Obviously there was a moment in between when we had injuries where he probably would have played, but these things happen in football.” Read Also Chelsea’s Drinkwater charged with drink driving Promoted ContentBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Pretty Awesome Shows That Just Got CanceledWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?8 Scenes That Prove TV Has Gone Too Far6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth
