Chelsea vs Burnley Match Preview
Burnley’s form in 2019 so far has been patchy, but they are enjoying an excellent spell just now and could be capable of making Chelsea pull out all the stops.
It has been a strange season for the Clarets, yet one in which they look to have secured a fourth consecutive Premier League campaign and winning their last three matches against Wolves, Bournemouth and Cardiff has been vital to that cause.
Although only one of those victories, against the Cherries, was away from home, Burnley should not be too fearful about travelling to Stamford Bridge because they won there last term and drew during the Blues’ 2014-15 title-winning season.
Chelsea, of course, are firmly embroiled in a tight four-way scrap for two Champions League places next term, although they or Arsenal could also qualify by winning the Europa League assuming they advanced from their respective quarter-finals on Thursday (results not known at the time of writing).
Maurizio Sarri’s side have despatched their last two domestic opponents at home, Brighton and West Ham, 2-0 and 3-0 respectively, but neither of those teams was in anywhere near as good form as Burnley are now, especially on their travels.
We are happy to take a chance on Sean Dyche’s men claiming a point, but the opportunity to double our money for Burnley to suffer a narrow defeat as the worst-case-scenario also appeals.
