Chelsea – Burnley : Preview & Prediction
Large winner at Turf Moor in the first leg (3-0) thanks to goals from Ziyech, Zouma and Werner, Chelsea will try to sign a 4th straight victory against this modest Burnley formation at Stamford Bridge this time. The London club has had mixed results since mid-January, recording 1 loss to Leicester City (2-0), 1 success in front of Luton (3-1) in the FA Cup and 1 draw without much relief against Wolverhampton (0 -0) this Wednesday evening. Giroud’s partners, who lost 2 important points on this last day, will want the 3 points of the win in this second match in a row in their stadium. Burnley, opposite Chelsea, has been on positive momentum in his last three outings. The Dyche players achieved a feat by beating Liverpool at Anfiled Road (1-0) on January 21 and then confirmed to Fulham (3-0) in the FA Cup and ahead of Aston Villa (3-2) on January 27. Barnes’ partners (2 goals) sank at Stamford Bridge (3-0) last season, just like in the first leg, and could encounter new difficulties in this return match.
Chelsea have been undefeated for 6 games against Burnley (5 wins and 1 draw).
The Blues easily won their last 3 oppositions (4-2, 3-0, 3-0).
The London club is 8th 5 points behind the Big Four … Victory expected at Stamford Bridge.
Burnley is only 15th in the Premier League.
Chelsea must redeem themselves after the draw conceded at home against Wolverhampton (0-0) on Wednesday.
Chelsea, who are lacking results, could restart the machine in front of a Burnley team which has been doing well in recent times.
