Burnley vs Chelsea Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester City handed Burnley with one of their biggest league defeats after a 5-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium. Sergio Aguero was able to provide the opener after just 17 minutes. Even though Burnley remained in the match at half-time, City opened the taps in the second-half with goals from Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez, and Leroy Sane. Chelsea snatched a late 2-2 draw from Manchester United to preserve their unbeaten start. Anthony Martial’s second-half brace cancelled out Antonio Rudiger’s opening goal in the first half. However, Ross Barkley came up with a goal in the sixth-minute of injury time to deny United a victory at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea went on to get a 3-1 win over BATE Borisov in the Europa League courtesy of a hat-trick from Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea have been defensively poor in recent weeks and the goal conceded against BATE Borisov in the midweek action means that the Blues only have two clean sheets in their last six games across all competitions. Burnley have all the means to trouble a Chelsea team that does not enjoy playing against physical opposition. Gudmundsson has been in excellent form and his crosses can help Vokes place pressure on David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger. At the other end, Chelsea are one of the top scorers in the league. I would back both teams to score.

The game is likely to be fierce contest with Burnley keen to get the first victory in almost a month. They have enough threat going forward, while Chelsea have come up with 20 league goals in the opening nine matches. Even in away games, Chelsea score goals with ease. I would back over 2.5 goals in the match.

Burnley Preview

The Clarets have improved a lot compared to the difficult start, but injuries to key players have prevented the team from climbing up the table. Burnley have also been unable to score goals as the likes of Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes have not been able to replicate their form of last season. Yet, a return of just one defeat in the last four league matches is a measure of their improvement. Burnley’s defensive record (17 goals conceded) has taken a hammering following the heavy loss against City.

Burnley Team News

Aaron Lennon (thigh), Nick Pope (shoulder), and Stephen Ward (knee) are the injury worries for Sean Dyche.

Chelsea Preview

Maurizio Sarri continues to impress in his Chelsea job but the Italian has to address certain elements of Chelsea’s play before things get out of hand. The manner of the collapse against Manchester United – before recovering to get a draw – highlighted the defensive issues for Chelsea. Sarri himself admitted after the game that the Blues struggle against physical opposition. There are also signs of teams queuing up to foul Eden Hazard, who has been the club’s top player this season with seven league goals. Pedro comes a distant second with just three league goals.

Chelsea Team News

Eden Hazard (back) is a doubt for the game. Ethan Ampadu (knee) and Marco van Ginkel (cruciate ligament) are certainly ruled out.
