Burnley vs Chelsea: Preview, Team News, Probable Line Up And Prediction


    Burnley vs Chelsea: In form, Chelsea will travel to Turf Moor to play against Vincent Kompany’s Burnley in a bid to win three consecutive matches in a row in all competitions.

    However, Burnley are currently in a cheerful mood after getting their first three points against Luton Town on October 3, 2023.

    Burnley vs. Chelsea Preview

    Burnley got Premier League promotion last season with 101 points. However, the team’s first win came against Luton Town.

    It appeared they were heading into a 1-1 draw after Elijah Adebayo scored in the 84th minute for Luton Town to cancel out Lyle Foster’s first-half goal.

    However, before the end of the second half, Burnley’s Jacob Brunn Larsen restored the lead.

    Vincent Kompany looks extremely excited about the never-say-die attitude of his players in snatching all three points.

    The Belgian manager hopes the win against Luton Town will boost the morale of the players and help them avoid dropping deep into the last three on the Premier League table.

    Burnley are currently in 18th place on the Premier League table. If Burnley could take a huge step in improving their home form, they would have been unstoppable.

    Also, improvement in the defense is needed, as they conceded 16 goals and failed to keep a single clean sheet in the last seven league matches.

    However, keeping Chelsea from scoring against them will be an extremely difficult task to do.

    Chelsea, on the other hand, are fully confident about winning at Turf Moor after defeating Brighton in the Carabao Cup and a 2-0 away win against Fulham.

    The first goal against Fulham came from Mykhaylo Mudryk in the 18th minute of the first half, followed by an Armando Broja goal 82 seconds later.

    It was Mauricio Pochettino’s first away win as Chelsea manager. Ending a three-game winless and scoreless streak in the top flight was a nice thing for Chelsea.

    Chelsea are currently in 11th place on the Premier League table with eight points and are four points clear of Burnley in the bottom three.

    Chelsea must not drop points against Burnley and most likely build on the Monday win to get a series of favorable results.

    After the international break, the London club will embark on a tricky run of top-flight fixtures, which include playing against Arsenal, Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Newcastle United, Brighton, and Manchester United.

    Chelsea have claimed three points in the last 14 matches away from home this season.

    Burnley will welcome Chelsea without Michael Obafemi, Nathan Redmond, and Darko Churlinov.

    However, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Manuel Benson, and Haaland Ekdal could return to the squad on October 7, 2023.

    The Burnley manager is not expected to make too many changes. Connor Roberts, Ameen Al-Dakhil, Jordan Beyer, and Charlie Taylor will continue at the back.

    Josh Brownhill, Josh Cullen, and Sander Berge will continue in the midfield. After scoring the winner against Luton Town, Brunn Larsen will get his first start in the Premier League game.

    Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell is already out until December 2023. The English defender has joined Christopher Nkunku, Wesley Fofana, and Romeo Lavia, who haven’t made any match appearances for Chelsea this season.

    In addition, Marcus Bettinelli, Benoit Badiashile, Trevoh Chaloba, and Carney Chukwuemeka.

    Reece James is closer to making a return after months of being out. However, he is going to serve a one-match ban when he returns to an on-field match.

    Malo Gusto will serve his third and final suspension. However, Marc Cucurella will continue to survive on the right side of the pitch after an impressive performance on that wing.

    Moises Caicedo, who suffered a knock against Fulham in the Premier League, will be available against Burnley alongside Enzo Fernandez and Conor Gallagher.

    Nicolas Jackson is available after serving his one match ban and will be in contention with Borja.

    Burnley vs Chelsea Prediction

    Chelsea are currently plagued with injuries, but a surge in their form has made them one of the most difficult teams to play against.

    Burnley, on the other hand, are struggling to get results and would like to win a game before the international break.
