Burnley welcomes Chelsea in a game from the 10th round of the English Premier League. Stay with us, because we are about to take a look at this clash at the Turf Moor.
Burnley are currently 13th in the league standings with 8 points won. Their record shows 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games Sean Dyche’s boys won twice, suffered two defeats and made one draw.
Burnley’s last fixture was unsuccessful. The team suffered a heavy 0-5 defeat during the visit to the champion Manchester City. The visiting team was totally outplayed by Pep Guardiola’s team, which was not a big surprise, of course. City are a far bigger club. But Sean Dyche probably hoped that his players would do a little bit better against the Cityzens.
Before losing to City, Burnley were in a run of three consecutive games without a defeat – two wins over Bournemouth and Cardiff City, and a draw against Huddersfield Town.
Chelsea are a title contender once again, after performing in a dissapointing way last season. Right now the Blues are 3rd in the Premier League standings, but trailing on just 2 points behind the leader Manchester City. Chelsea have 21 points and a record of 6 wins and 3 draws. But it’s kind of worrying that Maurizio Sarri’s side made three draws in its last four matches.
In their last game Chelsea made a 2-2 draw at home against Manchester United. Antonio Rudiger and Ross Barkley saved the point for Chelsea. It was 1-2 for United just seconds before the end of the game, but Barkley scored a very important equalizing goal.
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League clash between Burnley and Chelsea at the Turf Moor. We wish you good luck!
