Burnley vs Chelsea betting preview

Burnley continued their excellent form in the Premier League last time out as they beat Leicester City 2-1 at Turf Moor - making it five wins on the bounce in the process of virtually securing a seventh-placed finish for the season. By beating Leicester, the Clarets have now opened up a nine-point gap over the eighth-placed Foxes, both of whom have five games left to play this season.

Should they go on to finish in seventh and achieve a place in the Europa League, it would be an incredible achievement from Sean Dyche and his team who are operating on one of the smallest budgets in the top flight. With wins in each of their last five games coming into this one, they will have no fear of Chelsea here, who they beat 3-2 away from home on the opening day of the season.

Antonio Conte’s side picked up a much-needed three points in dramatic fashion last time out, after coming back from 2-0 to beat Southampton 3-2 at St. Mary’s Stadium. It was an almost surprising show of fight and spirit from a Chelsea team who seem to have lacked anything of the sorts in recent weeks, appearing to be disillusioned by Antonio Conte.

Still winning only three of their last nine games in the Premier League and two of seven away from home, they are a long way off being a Champions League side on current form and are seven points behind Tottenham in fourth. The FA Cup represents Conte’s best chance of going out on a high at Stamford Bridge and that semi-final with Southampton on Sunday could be on their mind.

Burnley vs Chelsea predictions

Burnley are in great form at this moment in time, but Chelsea will be full of confidence after their comeback win last time out. They could well cancel each other out here and the draw is priced at 12/5 with William Hill.

Both teams to score has occurred in four of the last five games for each team and a repeat of that is priced at 19/20 with Betfair.
