Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea pull away from chasing pack?

A 1-1 draw away at Brighton saw Chelsea pick up a point on the south coast and consolidate their current top four spot as they head into this weekend’s action in the Premier League 5 points ahead of 5th placed Manchester United.

Chelsea had previously registered an important 2-1 win away at London rivals, Arsenal, which helped maintain The Blues’ position in the top four of the top flight but recent defeats to Bournemouth and Southampton (both at Stamford Bridge), should serve as a reminder that they need to focus particularly on home turf.

The hosts possess a fairly ordinary record by their standards which stands at 4-2-4 11/10 which includes losing 3 of their last 4 matches at Stamford Bridge having suffered an earlier defeat to West Ham along with the aforementioned Bournemouth and Southampton losses.

However, having won 3 of the previous 4 meetings against Burnley, Chelsea will be in confident mood that they can grab all three points here in order to ensure they stay ahead of the chasing teams below them.

Burnley Prediction – Can Burnley avoid fourth defeat on trot?

Burnley were handed a third defeat on the trot last time out in the Premier League when they lost 2-1 at home to Aston Villa which followed earlier losses to Everton and Manchester United, so Sean Dyche’s men will make the long trip down to the nation’s capital where they’ll be looking to avoid a fourth defeat on the trot.

The visitors had previously registered back-to-back wins against Newcastle United and Bournemouth in 1-0 wins home and away respectively, but this recent losing streak has dropped Burnley down to 15th place in the Premier League standings and just 4 points above the relegation zone prior to this tough looking trip to Chelsea.

Recent results away from home have also been inconsistent for Burnley as they’ve won and lost in alternate fashion, losing at Sheffield United, Tottenham and Everton but also picking up wins at Watford and Bournemouth, but the bigger picture paints a dismal picture for Burnley as they’ve managed to win just 3 of their last 15 away matches in the top flight.


Key-Facts – Chelsea vs Burnley

  • Chelsea have lost 3 of their last 4 matches at home in the EPL
  • Burnley have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in the EPL
  • Chelsea have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against Burnley


Betting Tips Verdict

Chelsea should buckle down and take the three points here and also cover the handicap too.
