Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea win and under 3.5 goals
Odds: 11/8 @ 888sport
Looking to build off of their eye-catching European performance in midweek, Chelsea will make the trip to a struggling Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, hit with a late 1-0 defeat at home against Tottenham on Monday night, it has been a hugely worrying start to the New Year for Burnley. With Sean Dyche more than open about his criticisms over the Clarets’ exploits in the summer transfer window, the Lancashire outfit already find themselves battling it out in the drop zone and many feeling that they could be in for a tough season ahead. Managing to collect just a single point from their opening five Premier League appearances thanks to a sluggish 0-0 stalemate against top-flight returners West Brom earlier in the month, Dyche’s men also came crashing out of the EFL Cup thanks to a 3-0 drumming against Manchester City on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Chelsea might have shown their own issues since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, the former champions will be boosted by what turned out to be a rampant victory on foreign soil. Making the trip to Russian outfit Krasnodar on Wednesday evening and picking up a 4-0 win on their travels, Frank Lampard’s side will be desperate for his side to drag that momentum into this weekend. Watching Timo Werner open his Champions League account in midweek, the former England midfielder will be excited by his side’s recent improvements at the back. With new arrival Eduard Mendy receiving a string of praise since his arrival in West London, Chelsea have now managed to record three clean sheets on the bounce and will be confident of extending on that run at Turf Moor.
Bet: Chelsea 11/8 to beat Burnley and under 3.5 goals for Saturday’s Premier League showdown @ 888sport
