The stats behind our Chelsea vs Burnley predictions:

  • Burnley have only won one of their 17 Premier League games against Chelsea.
  • Chelsea have scored first in each of their past three games.

Can Blues find form?

Chelsea go into this game unbeaten in their past four matches across all competitions. But the Blues have been here before. With three wins from their past four, Chelsea have moved to the semi-finals of the FA Cup but they just cannot get out of the bottom half of the Premier League. In the league, Chelsea are unbeaten in their past four matches, with two of those being draws.

After losing back-to-back games against Liverpool and Wolves — having won three in a row prior — Chelsea beat Crystal Palace before successive draws against Manchester City and Brentford. The Blues then beat Newcastle 3-1 in their final Premier League game before the international break. Chelsea are on their longest unbeaten run in the league this season, but can they stretch it to five matches?

Further down the table, Burnley aren’t looking as adrift as they once were. Four points from their past two games, drawing with West Ham and beating Brentford, has breathed new life into Burnley’s battle against relegation. They’ve also been helped by Nottingham Forest’s points deduction and Luton’s poor form.

The Clarets are now just five points from safety, and they know they could be boosted even more if Everton get another points deduction as is predicted. Of course, Burnley still have work to do themselves, with just 17 points from 29 games, but there’s reason to hope.
