The Republic of Ireland international curled in the equaliser for Burnley to do what no player had achieved since Rickie Lambert back in 2013

Robbie Brady's stunning free-kick equaliser for Burnley against Chelsea is the first the Blues have conceded in the Premier League since 2013.

Chelsea fans fume over Cesc absence

The Republic of Ireland international, making his full debut for the Clarets, bent the ball into the top corner to make it 1-1 at Turf Moor after Pedro had given the Blues the lead.

And the goal was a significant one for Thibaut Courtois, with the Chelsea goalkeeper having now conceded his first goal direct from a free-kick in the Premier League.

The last player to score a free-kick against the west London club in the league was Rickie Lambert back in 2013 during his Southampton days.

RUMOURS: Benitez to replace Wenger

Petr Cech was in goal for the Blues that day, with the former England striker beating him from 25 yards to inspire a 2-1 victory.

Then Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez would lead his side to third in the table that same season, with Manchester United ending up as champions, 14 points ahead of the Blues.
