Burnley vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 28th October 2018
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
The Blues will make a trip north to be hosted by the Clarets in Turf Moor for this Sunday fixture.
It is understandable if Burnley comes into this matchup in low spirits. They were hammered with 5 goals to nil by the reigning champions last weekend. However, the most prudent thing for them would be to move and be focused not to receive a similar thrashing a home in this game.
Chelsea remains unbeaten under Sarri but has slipped off the pace in their last 4 games, having drawn in 3 matches. They are in third place with 21 points, just 2 points ahead of both Liverpool and Manchester City. This is a great opportunity to continue their unbeaten run in the last 9 matches.
They will be in high spirits after their 3-1 win in their UEFA Europa League fixture against Belarusian Premier League side, Bate Borisov. Ruben Loftus Cheek, who scored a hat-trick in this game will obviously feature in this away game and maybe in among the Starting XI.
Moreover, they must win this matchup to close in the gap between them and the top-flight leader. Barkley, whose late goal against the Red Devils on Saturday felt like a win, maybe in the Starting XI in the forward position. Willian may start with Giroud and in attacking position.
