Chelsea v Burnley
Saturday 3:00pm BST

Chelsea Win To Nil at 1.80 with Bet365.

Chelsea have made a strong start to the season picking up 6 points and positioning themselves to be worthy foe of the 2 Manchester sides. Burnley would have no complaints about the 3 points they picked up after shutting out Liverpool last week following an opening day defeat by Swansea.

We’re working with a small sample of recent head-to-head games between these 2 sides but the stats are overwhelmingly in favour of Chelsea with 3 wins from the 4 matches. The most recent encounter was a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge and the Clarets will be hoping for something similar this Saturday.

When looking at where goals might come from we can see that Burnley have scored a goal in 3 of the 4 matches. Chelsea have conceded in all 3 games (inc League Cup) this season which must be disappointing for them internally and a real focus going forward. Despite Burnley’s excellent win against Liverpool, I’m still expecting a season mirroring the 2014/15 campaign where they lost 19 games, scoring just 28 goals. In the opening matches this season their tactics look very similar which makes this a perfect game for Chelsea to be wary of the counter-attack and secure a good win and clean sheet.
