Chelsea vs Burnley

, KO: 15:00 Mar 30, 2024, Stamford Bridge

Burnley continue their quest to climb out of the relegation zone as they travel to Chelsea for a Premier League fixture on Saturday. The Clarets have shown some fight lately but Chelsea appear to be constantly improving and should be too strong for their visitors.

Sitting 11th on the standings, the task for Chelsea for the rest of the season will be to secure a place in the top half. They appear to have turned a corner in recent weeks, claiming three wins and a draw from their last four matches across all competitions.

Chelsea went into the international break off the back of a 4-2 victory over Leicester City in an FA Cup quarterfinal clash. They also claimed a 3-2 victory over Newcastle United in their previous Premier League fixture.

As the last two results have shown, Chelsea often struggle to tighten up defensively and are without a clean sheet in their last 19 matches across all competitions. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men still do enough to get the result having won five of their last six Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley were victorious in their last fixture prior to the international break as they triumphed 2-1 over Brentford. They raced to a two-goal lead courtesy of Jacob Bruun Larsen and Datro Fofana and were able to hold on for the win despite conceding late on.

That was the first win in 11 matches for Burnley, who are in desperate need of a run of wins to beat the drop. Vincent Kompany’s men remain second from bottom on the standings, five points from safety.

Burnley are generally poor on their travels having picked up just one win from their last 11 Premier League away matches. However, they did play out a 2-2 draw with West Ham in their previous fixture on the road and will be looking to build on that, having led for much of the encounter.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Chelsea as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 3/10 with 10bet. An unlikely victory for Burnley is valued at 9/1 with Coral while a draw is set at odds of 5/1 with Unibet.

Recent head to head

Chelsea are unbeaten in the last 10 matches against Burnley, claiming eight wins in that run the Blues ran out 4-1 winners in the reverse fixture back in October with Cole Palmer among the goals.

Players to watch

Cole Palmer is Chelsea’s leading scorer this season with 11 Premier League goals and will be the one to watch on Saturday. The forward was on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 5/4 by Unibet to get on the score sheet once again.

With on-loan striker Datro Fofana unable to feature against his parent club, Burnley will look to Wilson Odobert to provide the spark in attack. The forward was on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 6/1 by bet365 to score anytime on Saturday.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 4.5 goals in the reverse fixture and a similar outcome is priced 3/1 by Paddy Power. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 5/4 by Unibet while 888Sport is offering odds of 5/6 on both teams to score.

Given the minimal odds for a straight Chelsea victory, a win and both teams to score could be considered at 17/10 with BoyleSports. The Blues have claimed a few one-sided results against Burnley in recent times and could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 5/6 with Paddy Power.
