Kick-off 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).

Chelsea had a difficult start to the season, but they are good value to win in Saturday’s English Premier League clash at Burnley.

The Blues are coming on the back of a thumping 4-0 win away at Krasnodar and ended a streak of three consecutive draws across all competitions.

It will be encouraging for Frank Lampard that Hakim Ziyech finally got his name on the score-sheet and the likes of Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic come together to complete the victory in Russia.

Chelsea drew Manchester United blank last week in the Premier League and will be looking for their 3rd win of the season in 7 attempts.

Burnley are a shadow of what they used to be in previous season and caught at the wrong end of the table, managing a draw from 5 games so far.

They lost 0-1 to Spurs last week and this once again highlights their issues in the scoring department. Chris Wood is misfiring and managed just 1 goal so far while his striking partners Ashley Barnes, Jay Rodriguez and Michael Vydra are yet to score a goal this season.

This is why Blues are priced at low 1.50 odd to win at Turf Moor while the visitors can be backed at 5.50.

Burnley vs Chelsea Head-to-head

There have been 12 Premier League meetings between these two teams since 2009 and Chelsea have an excellent record by winning 8. Burnley managed to win just once while 3 are stalemates.

Last season’s fixture saw the Blues winning both legs, 3-0 at the Bridge and 4-2 at the Turf Moor.

There have been over 2.5 goals in their last 6 head-to-head clashes.

And finally, Chelsea won 5 and drew the other in their last 6 visits to this stadium.

Burnley vs Chelsea Prediction

With an excellent h2h record and fine scoring form on their side, must not look any further than a Blues win on Saturday. Frank Lampard’s men have some problems in the defensive department, but they must cope well against an attacking unit that scored just 1 goal this season.

Besides the Blues some good options on the bench and if Lampard decide to rest Werner, this open up a chance for the young Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud and so is the case for Kai Havertz, having an almost like-to-like replacement in Pulisic or Mason Mount.

We can also see the games involving Chelsea open up in the second half and 5 of their 6 away goals they scored this season came in the last 45 minutes of the game and therefore over 1.5 goals in the second half is a good punt.

Burnley vs Chelsea Betting Tips

  • Chelsea to win @ 1.50 odd

  • Over 1.5 goals in the second half @ 1.83.
