Chelsea vs Burnley Preview

  • Date – Saturday, March 30, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 03:30 pm GMT
  • Venue – Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will be facing relegation-threatened Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The Blues will be looking for a win to take them into the top half of the league table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side has a better goalscoring form this season, scoring 47 goals in 27 games but they have struggled defensively in the top-flight. They have conceded in 18 of the last 20 matches in the Premier League

They will then take on Burnley, who are languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table. The Clarets have only one paltry win to show from their last six away games in the Premier League. They are winless in their last ten meetings against Chelsea in the Premier League. Despite their unconvincing form this campaign, a win against Burnley seems likely at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will be without the likes of Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Lesley Ugochukwu, Levi Colwill, Romeo Lavia, and Christopher Nkunku through their respective injuries. Cole Palmer has shaken off his minor knock and will be available for action this weekend. Defender Malo Gusto has also recovered from his virus and will be available for the Blues.

On the other hand, the Clarets have a similar injury situation in their ranks as Luca Koleosho, Aaron Ramsey, Nathan Redmond, Lyle Foster, Ameen Al-Dakhil, and Jordan Beyer are all sidelined with injuries. But Al-Dakhil and Beyer could make a surprise return this weekend.

The Blues are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won the lost 13 home matches across all competitions barring one. Chelsea are struggling this season, sitting 11th in the league standings after 27 games. They have struggled defensively, conceding a whopping 45 goals and managing only five clean sheets.

Meanwhile, relegation-threatened Burnley have also failed to gather any consistent form this season. They have been pretty quiet in front of goal, scoring just 27 goals in 27 games. Defensively they have been worse than Chelsea, conceding 63 goals and keeping only two clean sheets.

Predicted Score: Chelsea 2-0 Burnley
