Burnley vs Chelsea Prediction: Premier League Match on 31.10.2020
Two sides that will be looking to find their best form in the Premier League will meet at Turf Moor this weekend, with Chelsea looking to win their first game in two in the league.
Premier League Preview
Frank Lampard said that he was pleased with his side’s performance despite drawing 0-0 at Old Trafford last weekend, but he will be keen that they get back to winning ways as that marked the second draw in a row for the Blues. The draw against Manchester United also ensured that the Blues have won just once in their last four Premier League fixtures.
The pressure on Lampard will begin to mount if the Blues aren’t able to take their chances and compete for a top-four space, and this trip to Burnley will be considered a must-win game for the manager. Chelsea’s defensive issues still look to be unanswered, as they have conceded nine goals in their opening six fixtures. Six of those goals have been conceded against West Bromwich Albion and Southampton, which will give Burnley confidence going into this fixture that they will get chances.
Burnley are yet to win a game in the Premier League this season, as they have picked up just one point from their five games. The Clarets were able to pick up that point in a recent fixture against West Bromwich Albion, as the two sides played out a 0-0 draw. Burnley are struggling in the attacking half of the pitch so far this season, as they have scored just three goals, which is the joint-lowest of all the teams in the league. They will go into this game having lost 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur in their most recent fixture, but Sean Dyche will be hoping that his team can defend to the same standard against the Blues this weekend.
Burnley vs Chelsea Head To Head
Burnley haven’t beaten Chelsea since 2017, which means that they have gone five games without a win against the Blues. Chelsea have won four of those five games, and they have scored an average of 3.5 goals per game against Burnley in the last two fixtures.
Burnley vs Chelsea Prediction
Burnley have a decent defensive record, but scoring goals is becoming a huge problem for them this season. This will be another defeat for the Clarets, as Lampard’s Chelsea run riot at Turf Moor and claim a big win.
