Chelsea vs Burnley preview
After starting his Premier League career with a frustrating 90 minutes against Wolves, the Blues’ German boss is unlikely to find things too much easier against another tough opponent.
Sean Dyche’s men are in confident spirits after successive league wins over Liverpool and high-flying Villa, and have only conceded eight goals in their last 12 matches in all competitions.
On current form, they will certainly back themselves to make life difficult for a home side that has found the net just five times in six matches in the league and only twice in three attempts on home turf.
On the other hand, it is hard to see the guests posing too much of a threat at the other end of the pitch after finding the net just twice in eight league away games and only five times in 10 in total – a league low.
Chelsea vs Burnley predictions
All things considered, odds of 11/10 (2.10) are not to be missed on Burnley ensuring under 2.5 goals for their ninth league game in 11 and Chelsea’s fifth in six.
