Burnley have continued to excel this season as they beat Leicester City 2-1 at home. The win makes it five wins in a row for the Clarets. The club also hasn’t lost any domestic league game since February 10 and this increasingly builds Burnley’s confidence.
As the Clarets welcome Chelsea, Georges N’Koudou and Jon Walters are both major doubts. Robbie Brady, Stephen Defour, Scott Arfield, and Ben Mee all sidelined too.
Defending champs Chelsea managed to get three goals last weekend when they travelled to Southampton’s play ground. Despite the win, the campaign wasn’t easy for the team. The Foxes went two goals down as the Saints threatened. Luckily, substitute Olivier Giroud was able to make an eight minute comeback to win the game 3-2.
Chelsea will be traveling Turf Moor without the presence of Danny Drinkwater, Ethan Ampadu, and David Luiz for this clash.
Burnley will fancy their chances of beating Chelsea, hence we could all witness a thrilling game at Turf Moor. Also, the Clarets could possibly leap frog Arsenal into sixth place if they manage to beat the powerhouse of manager Antonio Conte (Watch how this contest unfolds.
