Premier League: Burnley vs Chelsea preview


Surprise package Burnley are looking to extend their incredible winning streak to six games when they host defending champions Chelsea at Turf Moor on Thursday. The Clarets have already beaten Chelsea in the reverse fixture earlier this season, they pulled off a spectacular 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge in August thanks to a goal from Stephen Ward and a double from Sam Vokes. However, Chelsea have won three of the last six direct matches.

Burnely are having the best season in their history and they even have a chance to qualify for the Europa League at the end of the campaign. The Clarets have won their last five Premier League matches and are now just two points behind sixth-placed Arsenal in the league table. Last weekend Burnley defeated Leicester 2-1 at Turf Moor and manager Sean Dyche will most likely choose to field an unchanged starting eleven.

Chelsea can only hope to finish this season with some decent results, they don't have many chances left to finish in the top four and the title defence has already failed. The Blues are seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and it is hard to believe that the Spurs could slip up that often in the remaining five league matches. Last weekend Chelsea fought back from 2-0 down to secure a 3-2 victory at Southampton and they will probably try to put on a decent performance again on Thursday.

Probable line-ups:

Burnley: Pope - Lowton, Tarkowski, Long, Ward - Gudmundsson, Westwood, Cork, Lennon - Wood, Barnes

Chelsea: Courtois - Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill - Moses, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Emerson - Barkley, Pedro - Giroud

My prediction: Burnley to win 2-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Burnley win - 4.00
Draw - 3.39
Chelsea win - 1.90

    Burnley lost that but they won the best of the rest league excluding the top 6 teams which is a great achievement.
    More so they could be even in front of Arsenal in the end which would really be a fantastic achievement.
    I wonder when the big teams in England would realize Shaun Dyche is a fantastic manager and some of them will go after him, the guy making a miracles for years with the unpretentious Burnley's side and I can't believe no one is willing to give him a chance at a bigger stage.
