Burnley v Chelsea Betting Preview
Venue: Turf Moor
Channel: Sky Sports Premier League
Despite being considered the natural underdogs to Chelsea, Burnley will still undoubtedly stroll into this fixture with great confidence. Undefeated since mid-February, Sean Dyche has transformed this Burnley team into a successful side. However, with that said – it does seem that Burnley have struggled against ‘big’ opposition. For example, in 2018 alone, Burnley have suffered defeats to Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool, which Chelsea will look to take advantage of.
Chelsea on the other hand had to rely on substitute Olivier Giroud to rescue the three points against a relegation threatened Southampton. Regarding the fixture itself, Chelsea struggled to get into the game and make their mark – which certainly personifies their form in 2018. With the Blues eight points behind Spurs who occupy 4th, it seems uncertain that Chelsea will be playing Champions League football next season.
- Burnley will be without Arfield, Defour and Mee for this clash.
- Chelsea on the other hand are unable to play David Luiz and Danny Drinkwater due to injury.
Potential Burnley Starting XI: Pope; Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Ward; Lennon, Cork, Westwood, N’Koudou; Barnes, Wood
