Burnley v Chelsea Betting Odds*
Chelsea 10/11, Draw 13/5, Burnley 14/5* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)
Burnley News and Form
The Clarets have a big head of steam going at the moment with a five-match winning streak. Four of those wins have been by a 2-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market a Burnley 2-1 option is at 14/1 odds a long way from the shortest priced option of a Chelsea 1-0 at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). The Clarets are unbeaten in four at home (W2 D2) and collected a 2-1 win over Leicester there on the weekend. They could jump above Arsenal into sixth place with three points in this one. Overall their home form is W7 D4 L5 for the season and they did hold Man City to a 1-1 draw just back in February. There have only been the 14 home goals from the Clarets this season, but they are defensively strong having conceded just 13 in 16 home fixtures. Only 25% of their home games have made it above the 2.5 goal line however each to their last five (home and away combined) have gone over and over 2.5 goals at bet365 does appeal at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Striker Chris Wood has now scored in four of their last five.
Chelsea News and Form
Chelsea showed a nice bit of team spirit and character on the weekend, fighting back from 2-0 down at Shoutmon to take a 3-2 win thanks to super-sub Olivier Giroud who got a brace, with Eden Hazard getting the other. That snapped a three-match losing streak of away from that Chelsea were on, so they needed that boost of confidence. Still, they look pretty messy at the back and both teams to score at bet365 is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). The Blues have scored an average of 1.8 goals per away game this season but have conceded at over a goal per game now. 69% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea doesn’t have a clean sheet in any of their last four away games and none in their last six home and away combined. It’s not been good from them at the back and 67% of the goals that they have conceded away from home have been in the second half of matches so they tend to switch off at the end of games it would appear. They have scored in 81% of their away games this season and Eden Hazard is their top away scorer with eight.
Burnley v Chelsea Head to Head
Burnley opened the season with a shock 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. That was the first ever win for the Clarets over the Blues in the Premier League. Chelsea are W4 D2 L1 from their seven previous Premier League fixtures against the Clarets. Both teams have scored in each of the three previous Premier League meetings at Turf Moor and five of the seven previous top-flight clashes have gone above 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Burnley v Chelsea Predictions
Burnley are playing with such team spirit and confidence at the moment, that they may well be able to hold out. Chelsea are not looking particularly sound at the back by any stretch of the imagination, so back a midweek draw at Turf Moor.
