Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Burnley FC


eden hazard chelsea

The Premier League weekend concludes with Burnley visiting Chelsea on Monday night, a match that was extremely one-sided in the reverse fixture. The Blues bulldozed Burnley 4-0 at the Turf Moor earlier this season, but the current Clarets are now playing much better.

Now free from worries of regulation, they have been able to play loose and have all three points from their last three.

However, they have not fared well against Chelsea in recent meetings, winning just one of the last six clashes (L3, D2).


In the all-time series though, they have the advantage with 38 wins to Chelsea’s 36; to go along with 23 draws.
