Burnley goalkeeper Heaton: Higuain's shot was a rocket

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton was delighted with their point at Chelsea.

Heaton admits he could do little to deny Gonzalo Higuain his goal for the 2-2 draw.

He told Sky Sports: "It was a massive point. We knew it would be a tough game.

"You could see how much it meant to the lads. We've been very good at offensive and defensive set-plays.

"Gonzalo Higuain's shot was a rocket. I couldn't get my hands onto it.

"We can soak up pressure and make it awkward for teams."
