Burnley vs Chelsea Betting Tips
Chelsea have a lot of problems with injuries, but that isn’t stopping them from doing very well in all the competitions they’re taking part in. The Blues have won their previous six matches in all competitions, including the EFL Cup, Champions League, and the Premier League. Earlier this week, they traveled to Amsterdam to play against the semifinalist of the last season’s Champions League. Even though Ajax were slight favorites in that game, Chelsea managed to win it.
Their next challenge is Burnley, a team famous for being great at the back, especially on their turf. At home, Burnley have allowed only 3 goals so far; only Newcastle have allowed fewer goals. Finding the net against Burnley won’t be an easy task for Chelsea, but what gives them confidence is that their attacking players have been in a sensational form lately. After 9 rounds, Chelsea have 19 goals, which makes them the 3rd-highest-scoring team in the league at the moment.
The biggest problem with Chelsea is that they haven’t been too great at the back. They have conceded 14 goals, which is really a lot. In fact, only three Premier League teams have allowed more goals this season. And the reason why that is the case is that this team has some big problems with injuries, particularly at the back.
Christensen is out and so is Rudiger, which leaves Chelsea manager Frank Lampard with limited options in the center-back position. They also have problems with injuries in the midfield, with Kante, Barkley, and Loftus-Cheek being sidelined.
With so many problems in the squad, it’s really surprising that Chelsea have been playing at such a high level. Maybe Burney could put an end to that?

Burnley Form and Latest News
Last weekend, they lost to in-form Leicester City 2:1 which was their third defeat this season. But, the other two happened a relatively long time ago. Before their trip to Leicester, Burnley were in a pretty good run with two wins and two draws in four rounds. They’re especially good at home, where they’ve won three out of four matches this season, keeping a clean sheet in each of the games they won. Although they don’t look capable of keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea, they probably won’t get hammered by the Blues.
Chelsea Form and Latest News
Chelsea have been superb in the attack, while their defense seems poor. It’s really surprising that they haven’t allowed more goals lately. They have managed to keep a clean sheet in their previous three matches in all competitions, but that seems to be likely to end this weekend. With so many injuries in the defensive department, their injury-free players seem too tired to keep the same level of performance for much longer.
