League: English Premier League

Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Chelsea vs Burnley: Chelsea has dropped the local crowd in their last two PL games here. Anyway, with Burnley probably in the worst case, count on the blues to get away with the three points.
Chelsea failed to win in their last showdown with the PL after Brighton returned from behind to keep them 1-1. However, the hosts have stumbled only once in their last five games in all competitions.
Currently, the Blues are in fourth place, eight points behind Manchester City, third, and five points above Manchester United, fifth.
Meanwhile, Burnley was hit by a sharp drop in form. Guests have had trouble doing things since the end of the first flight and have had consecutive losses in their last three games.
Accumulating even more misery, the Clarets have alternated wins and losses in their last five outings. With only two few road victories so far, it goes without saying that Burnley is a nervous group away from home.
It should also be mentioned that the guests have won only once during their last six visits to the Stamford Bridge. Given the obvious difference in height of the teams involved, Burnley is simply the helpless one to save even one point.
In addition, the objectives were not difficult to achieve when these two sides blocked the horns, especially at this stage. All your last four h2h meetings here have been high scoring agreements with more than 2.5 goals in the final scoreboards.
Besides, Burnley was too easy to break in his outings. Miserably, they have conceded seventeen goals to date on the road.
With the Blues finding four times the bottom of the net in the return match of this clash three months ago too, don’t count on the death of goals this weekend.
