BUR vs CHE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Burnley must not give up on the ghost when they host the unbeaten Chelsea in the Premier League match at Turf Moor on Sunday.
Not since beating Liverpool 2-0 in August 2016 that Burnley have come unscathed from the matches against the Premier League top six. Since then the Clarets have played 12 times against the big six and have managed just two points in those matches while losing 10 times in those matches.
On current form, this torrid record may stretch past one more week after the final whistle at Turf Moor as Sean Dyche’s men are coming up against an in-form Chelsea team, while their own difficult start to this new campaign doesn’t bode well for this game. They look fragile at the back, while the attack looks a bit blatant at this moment. And after a 5-0 humbling at the Etihad Stadium last week against Manchester City, another long afternoon may be waiting for Burnley in this match.
Chelsea stretched their unbeaten streak to 13 matches in all competitions after beating Bate Borisov 3-1 in the Europa League. The Blues have also made a promising start to the Premier League season as they sit 3rd and just two points off leaders Manchester City.
Now Maurizio Sarri’s men make a trip down to North to face a struggling Burnley side who were thrashed by Man City last weekend. The momentum is definitely with the visitors and it’s a chance for Hazard and Co to further their championship credentials in this match.
Last time out, Chelsea played a humdinger of a match in the Premier League. The defeat looked a certainty against Manchester United on Sunday before Ross Barkley’s 96th-minute equalizer snatched a point for Chelsea. It must have felt like a winner for everybody inside the Bridge except United fans and Jose Mourinho.
