Chelsea vs Burnley Prediction

Chelsea failed to pick up the win in their last PL matchup after Brighton came back from behind to hold them to a 1-1 draw. The hosts nevertheless have stumbled just once in their past five games in all competitions.

At the moment, the Blues are sitting fourth on the ladder, eight points behind third-placed Manchester City, and five above fifth-placed Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Burnley have been hit by a sharp decline in form. The guests have been struggling to get things going as of late in the top flight, and have been recording back to back defeats in their past three games.

Piling on even more misery, the Clarets have been alternating between wins and losses in their last five outings. With just two measly wins on the road so far, it goes without saying that Burnley are a nervous bunch away from home.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have come out on top just once in their past six visits to Stamford Bridge. Given the evident difference in stature of the teams involved as well, Burnley are the outright underdogs to salvage even a point in this one.

In addition, goals have not been hard to come by when these two sides lock horns, especially at this stadium. All of their previous four h2h meetings here have been high scoring affairs with over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.

Furthermore, Burnley have been far too easy to breach in their outings. Miserably, they have conceded seventeen goals so far on the road.

With the Blues finding the back of the net four times in the reverse fixture of this clash three months ago as well, count on no death of goals this weekend either.
