Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to win against Burnley
Odds: 2/5 @ Betfair
Premier League favourites Chelsea face Burnley in their first league game of the new season, and the Londoners are big favourites for victory tonight.
Burnley couldn’t have wished for a harder start to their survival campaign, but manager Sean Dyche will ensure his side are well organised to avoid a big defeat. They boasted an impressive defensive record in the Championship.
However, Betfair are giving odds of 2/5 for the Blues to run riot against the Clarets, with their new arrivals Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa to start in tonight’s game. While Jose Mourinho side finished third last season, they have strengthened in the transfer market that has led many to believe the 2014/15 title is theirs to lose.
But Manchester City and Arsenal will provide competition and they both won their opening game of the new season as they pursue their own title hopes this season. Burnley are the favourites to get relegated with the likes of West Brom and Leicester City, so having Chelsea away won’t do much for confidence.
