The English Premier League looks back on a perfect international week. The League underpinned the claim to be the strongest league in the world. All seven international starters won their games. For a long time on the redemptive goal, Frank Lampard had to wait with his blues at last year’s semi-finalist in the Champions League, Ajax Amsterdam.
Burnley vs Chelsea Today’s Soccer Betting Tips
Thanks to Michy Batshuayi, however, the sixth competitive victory was fixed in series. This weekend is another away game on the program – in the league it comes to a duel between Burnley and Chelsea!
After a difficult start, the reigning Europa League winner has found his way into the lead and has shown impressive form in recent weeks. The guest appearance at the Turf Moor will certainly be no picnic. Burnley has won three of the four previous home games and is ranked 12th on a strong eighth place in the table.
However, a point win by the home side is not to be expected. In the Premier League duel between Burnley and Chelsea odds are offered around the 1.80 for the guests victory.
Burnley – Statistics & Current Form
The Turf Moor was not necessarily a fortress for the team of head coach Sean Dyche in recent years. In the past season, The Clarets collected in the first nine home games only seven counters. Burnley has already outperformed Burnley in the current season after four home games.
With the exception of the 0-3 defeat to league leaders Liverpool, the remaining three home games were won. There was neither against Southampton nor against newly promoted Norwich City and Everton FC to concede a goal.
The fact that the home game against Liverpool was lost, however, was no surprise, because the record against the “Big Six” of the league is absolutely devastating for Burnley. Only one of the last 25 games against the big six of the league could win the underdog. No fewer than 18 of these games were lost. A “to zero” against a Big-Six team did not even exist in 34 games – in this period you conceded a rich 75 goals.
A game without conceding is not expected this weekend. Hope for points makes the current strong form of New Zealand international Chris Wood. He has scored four times in the last four games – previously he needed 16 games for four goals.
Expected list of Burnley:
➱ Pope – Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton – Brady, Westwood, Hendrick, McNeil – Rodriguez, Wood
Last Games by Burnley:

Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
In recent weeks, Chelsea could finally make the bumpy start with coach Frank Lampard. The blues struggled bit by bit back to the top in the Premier League. All six last matches were won.
Thanks to the late goal by Michy Batshuayi against Ajax Amsterdam on Tuesday evening, the door to the KO phase of the Champions League has also opened wide.
Even in the domestic league Chelsea is now back in the usual climes. Thanks to four wins in the last five games (only against Liverpool put it a 1: 2 defeat) rank the blues now in fourth place of the table. Should Chelsea beat The Clarets on Saturday night, this would be the first time Frank Lampard, as the head coach, could celebrate four league victories in a row.
The chances for this are quite good, especially in recent weeks, Chelsea presented itself in a stony state abroad. After the opening defeat at Old Trafford (fierce 0: 4-Klatsche) there were three away victories in series for Chelsea, in each case at least three goals were scored. If the Blues also celebrate an away win on Saturday with at least three goals, this would be a premiere. Never before has Chelsea won four away games with at least three goals.
The two youngsters Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount have each scored at least once in these three away games. The last Chelsea player to have scored in four consecutive Premier League away games was Diego Costa (in December 2016). Top scorer Tammy Abraham (eight goals this season) is definitely a candidate to risk a goal as a scorer in the duel between Burnley and Chelsea.
Worth mentioning at Chelsea in this calendar year are also countless goals. Chelsea have already conceded a proud 28 goals in the 13 Premier League away games this calendar year. Most recently, there were more goals conceded in 1997 (31) – this value is likely to be exceeded this year.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
➱ Kepa – Alonso, Tomori, Zouma, Azpilicueta – Jorginho, Barkley – Hudson-Odoi, Mount, Willian – Abraham
Last matches of Chelsea:
⚽️ 23.10.2019 – Ajax Amsterdam vs Chelsea 0: 1 (Champions League)
⚽️ 19.10.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Newcastle 1: 0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 06.10.2019 – Southampton Vs. Chelsea 1: 4 (Premier League)
⚽️ 02.10.2019 – OSC Lille vs.. Chelsea 1: 2 (Champions League)
⚽️ 28.09.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Brighton & Hove Albion 2: 0 (Premier League)
Burnley vs Chelsea Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
The blues from London can describe Burnley as a kind of favorite opponent. In the English Premier League, the two teams faced each other ten times – “The Clarets” could only celebrate a single victory. This succeeded on the first matchday of the season 2017/18. Otherwise, there were six favorites for the capital city Elf and three draws. Chelsea have won four out of five away matches and scored at least two in each of these four wins.
Burnley vs Chelsea Best Betting Tips and Odds
Especially thanks to the performances on the domestic Turf Moor Burnley currently draw a very positive interim conclusion. However, this weekend again a “Big Six” team at Burnley and against these teams, the Clarets have a clearly negative record. Despite three home wins without conceding, we find between Burnley and Chelsea a prediction on a point win the home side too risky.
