Burnley vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26 October 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
The Blues have been making the most of the comparatively easier schedule they had been allotted with. With three wins on the trot in the competition, they seem to have built quite some momentum, and fans will certainly hope their team can keep the run going.
However, with them on the road this weekend, and that too at the Turf Moor, where the hosts are known to be difficult to mess with, Frank Lampard’s men need to put on a masterclass in order to post the three points on the board.

Burnley vs Chelsea Prediction
The Clarets lost the last day against the Foxes on the road. While the guests did have a lead in the first half, they messed it up with conceding two goals, one of which came late into the game. Meanwhile, the 2016-17 champions held on against Newcastle at home the last day and registered a 1-0 win to keep hopes up at the camp.
As of now, Lampard’s men are on a five-game winning run and scored a whopping 16 goals in the process. They were also unbeaten in 14 of their preceding 17 ties and netted twice or more in ten of their prior ten match-ups. On the road, they are on a streak of four wins, and once again found the back of the net an astonishing 16 times in their last five road trips.
On the contrary, their opposite number has mere two wins to show for, from their previous nine attempts, and lost two of their last four at home as well.
In addition, against each other, Cesar Azpilicueta and his boys have triumphed in a monumental manner. They have registered six of the former seven wins and in fact, have lost only once in the previous decade. Moreover, at this venue, they hold a 100% unbeaten record and have never failed to find the back of the net.
Finally, they have only once failed to score two or more goals against this rival at this stadium.
By the looks of things, we are about to witness a convincing performance from the Blues this Saturday.
