Chelsea v Burnley - Match Preview

Chelsea v Burnley

Chelsea have the chance to strengthen their position in the Premier League table when they take on Burnley at Stamford Birdge.

PaddyPower Pre-Match Odds: Chelsea 1/4, Draw 5/1, Burnley 14/1

 

The Blues have had a mixed season but could end it on a high should they manage to secure a place in the top four. 

 

In order to turn this into reality though, Maurizio Sarri’s side have to take all three points against Burnley. 

 

That may prove easier said than done with Sean Dyche’s men still fighting to secure their Premier League status. 

 

Following a string of positive results, Burnley need just a few more points to ensure top tier football next season. The Clarets will no doubt be intent on making sure that those points come at the expense of Chelsea. 

 

The Blues come into this game on the back of their narrow victory over Slavia Prague in the Europa League. 

 

There are clear vulnerabilities in their camp which does suggest that this upcoming clash against Burnley may be a lot closer than first expected. 

 

With that in mind, the recommendation is to back the hosts but only to win by a slender margin of one goal. This bet is currently priced at ….

 

Recommendation

Chelsea to win by a margin of one goal – 13/5 PaddyPower
