Burnley come into this one off the back of three consecutive wins and in the sort of form that could seriously dent Chelsea’s chances of Champions League football next season. By the time kick-off comes around on Monday, Sarri’s team could find themselves in 6th place behind United and Arsenal with nothing short of a home win required to keep them in the hunt. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we have some enhanced odds waiting for you in our FanBoosts section.
Chelsea Recent Form
Chelsea’s momentum wasn’t enough for them to steal a result at Anfield last weekend as having gone into the game off the back of three straight wins, they were made to pay by come clinical Liverpool finishing.
That defeat means they’ve now lost five of their last seven trips as their only victories came in close 2-1 encounters against a relegated Fulham side and 18th-placed Cardiff.
Fortunately, they’re back at the Bridge this Sunday where they’ve only lost once this season, including five wins from their last six unbeaten outings, and they’ll know a win is virtually a necessity if they’re to make the top four having played a game more than both Arsenal and United ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.
Burnley On A Run
Burnley are on a good run of their own with three victories on the bounce, though it was sorely needed as they were flirting with the drop zone only a month ago having lost four straight matches.
However, Sean Dyche has got his charges back on track, though he’ll know he has his work cut out as their record against the ‘Big Six’ reads W2-D5-L14 since the start of last year, including defeats in four of five unbeaten matches on the road this term.
Interestingly, they did put two goals past Man Utd, Liverpool and Spurs in their last three such games home or away, with the former two coming on the road, while they also beat the Blues 3-2 in their last trip to Stamford Bridge – albeit benefiting from a pair of Chelsea red cards.
Chelsea v Burnley Betting Tips
Although we don’t expect them to repeat that feat, we can at least expect them to register on the scoreboard.
Indeed, they’ve scored in five of their last six versus ‘Big Six’ sides and have netted in 10 of their last 11 against anyone as they even bagged two or more in seven.
Maurizio Sarri will also be without the services of Antonio Rudiger who limped off last weekend and since the start of last season, they’ve conceded 32% more goals in the 15 games he hasn’t started in that time, so the Blues win and both teams to score looks the way to go.
