Burnley v Chelsea Betting Tips Explained


Chelsea may have left Southampton with all three points on Saturday afternoon, but it was far from convincing stuff from a side that were crowned Premier League champions less than 12 months ago. The Blues appeared to be heading for defeat when they trailed 2-0 with just 20 minutes remaining at St Mary’s, but Olivier Giroud gave them hope when he pulled one back and then grabbed the winner 12 minutes from time after Eden Hazard had levelled things up.

That 3-2 victory ensured Chelsea maintained their grip on fifth place in the table while also keeping alive their slim chances of a top-four finish, but this is still a team that have won only four of their last 12 matches in the Premier League and that is something hosts Burnley will be well aware of when the two teams go head-to-head at Turf Moor on Thursday night.

The Clarets are enjoying a season to remember and it could culminate in a Europa League spot for next season if they can retain seventh place in the table and one of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea win the FA Cup this season. Sean Dyche’s side have a nine-point lead over eighth-place Leicester City heading into the midweek fixtures, and if they can maintain that gap they will be within touching distance of a top-seven finish with just four rounds of fixtures remaining.

So can they boost their top-seven chances with a famous home win over Chelsea on Thursday night? Their home record against the top-six has not been great this season, with their only point coming courtesy of a 1-1 home draw against runaway league leaders Manchester City in February, but they have taken a point in trips to Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur and they did, of course, run out 3-2 winners when they visited Chelsea on the opening day of the season.

Burnley go into this match full of confidence too having won five straight games, so with Chelsea stumbling during the run-in and the Clarets a team in form right now, I would not be shocked to see Dyche’s said run out winners here and stay firmly on course for the top seven. However, it would be foolish to simply write off the visiting Blues, so I recommend going Draw No Bet to give yourself a spot of insurance when backing Burnley here.

I also suggest backing this match to see at least three goals. Each of Burnley’s five matches during their recent win streak have produced Over 2.5 Total Goals, while this has also been a winning bet on eight of Chelsea’s last 10 Premier League outings. It was also a winning bet when these two teams went head-to-head at Stamford Bridge back in August, so I am predicting we will see more of the same at Turf Moor on Thursday night.
