Chelsea Burnley betting prediction


Preview

Chelsea and Burnley face off at Stamford Bridge on this 20th round match of the Premier League.

The team fronted by the Portuguese coach José Mourinho comes into this match riding a positive 5 game streak (4 wins and 1 draw). Their last match ended in a 1-0 win at home against Everton. These results place Chelsea on the 1st place with 59 points.

The visiting side quite differently is a very poor spot. On their last 5 matches, only 1 win. Their last match registering a loss at Old Trafford by a 3-1 score line. Burnley is currently the 19th placed team with 21 points.

The head-to-head stats are clearly in favour of the home team with the “blues” losing only one of their last 4 face offs.

Analysis of Chelsea

The home team generally appears on a 4-3-3 formation. That being said, team rotation is a large factor on this squad which makes it very hard to predict who will be playing where.

With Oscar still uncertain (injury) for this match, it is likely that “”Mou” will change his midfield. He will probably put Fabregas on the nº 10 spot and start either Ramires or Matic on a more defensive role to better cope with the absence of the Brazilian playmaker.

Diego Costa is the main highlight of the Chelsea attack. The statistics tell the story of the Spaniard’s importance, 17 goals scored in 19 matches.

Having players like Hazard, Willian or Costa also gives the team the ability to decide hard games through sheer individual prowess. 


Confirmed Lineup: T. Courtois, K. Zouma, B. Ivanović, J. Terry, Filipe Luís, Oscar, J. Cuadrado, Fàbregas, N. Matić, Diego Costa, E. Hazard.
Coach: José Mourinho.

Analysis of Burnley

The visiting team usually presents itself on a fragile 4-4-2 formation with the intent of gaining possession at midfield and setting up dangerous counter attacks with the 2 frontline players given much freedom.

Given the clear intent of the team on leaving the relegation zone and the morale boost that smaller teams get when playing against powerhouse squads. We expect that Sean Dyche’s squad will try to win this game stealing some of Chelsea’s momentum.

The main reference of the team is Danny Ings, the forward has already scored 9 times this season and is always a problem for the opposite defences with his killer instinct and smart box movement.

The squad’s main weapon for this match will be their aerial game strength. They do however show great difficulty maintaining ball possession.


Confirmed Lineup: T. Heaton, J. Shackell, K. Trippier, M. Keane, B. Mee, G. Boyd, M. Kightly, D. Jones, S. Arfield, D. Ings, A. Barnes.
Coach: S. Dyche.
