Form

Chelsea sit a lowly 11th in the Premier League with just 39 points from 27 matches so far however they’re unbeaten in four matches and finally showing signs of improvement. Before the international break Chelsea defeated Leicester City 4-2 at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup whilst their last Premier League game was a 3-2 home win against Newcastle United.

Burnley are 19th in the Premier League having taken a mere 17 points from 29 matches so far however they have given themselves a real chance of survival with four points from their last two matches. The Clarets won 2-1 at home to Brentford last time out while their last away league game ended in a 2-2 draw at West Ham United.

Betting Tips

Chelsea have been much improved recently and could make light work of Burnley once more. Whilst they’re a little short at 2/7 to back in the match betting market, we’re not opposed to backing The Blues at 4/5 in the -1 handicap market.

Nicholas Jackson scored in the reverse fixture and has also netted in Chelsea’s last three league games. Jackson is 21/20 to score at any time or 15/4 to score first against Burnley.

Chelsea may have won three and drawn one of their past four matches in all competitions but Mauricio Pochettino’s side have conceded exactly two goals in each game. Whilst Burnley have scored two goals in back-to-back matches. This makes both teams to score seem inevitable at 4/5 whilst over 3.5 match goals is a very interesting option at 6/5.
