On Saturday afternoon, Chelsea will play Burnley in the Premier League at Turf Moor in an effort to win three straight games overall. The Clarets, meanwhile, are in a good mood after winning 2-1 against Luton Town on Tuesday to earn their first three points of the new campaign.
Burnley vs Chelsea
Burnley, who are ranked 18th, aimed to win their second straight league game. They welcome Chelsea, who are now in 11th place and are also aiming for their second straight league win. Prior to their victory at fellow underachievers Luton Town in the middle of the week, Burnley had a difficult time adjusting to life back in the Premier League, having only collected one point from six games.
Although they prevailed 2-1, it appeared as though a draw might have been in the cards. Prior to conceding an equalizer in the 84th minute, the Clarets were up. They quickly regained the lead and held onto it this time for a crucial victory. By the time this game starts, they might have moved out of the bottom three.
That will be the case if Tottenham defeats Luton Town by a score of three in the game that kicks off early. Burnley has lost to Manchester City, Aston Villa, Tottenham, and Manchester United this season and is yet to collect a point at home.
If Chelsea draws this match at Turf Moor, they might eventually break into the top ten in the Premier League. The Blues are optimistic that things have changed after defeating Fulham 2-0 in their most recent league game. That victory put an end to a streak of three league games without a victory. They did defeat Brighton and Hove Albion last week in the Carabao Cup, so a victory today would mark their third straight victory. Only four points have been earned by Chelsea in their last seven away games, all of which were against Bournemouth.
Given their previous struggles, Chelsea’s victory at Fulham was one they deserved, and they’ll be hoping to carry that momentum into Saturday’s match. This match may be intriguing because Burnley has also improved since the mid-September break.
The Blues’ newly discovered swagger, however, could make matters worse for the Clarets, who have so far had trouble winning at home. Pochettino’s backline has had an outstanding start to the season, so the hosts will have their work cut out for them if they want to get past the tenacious visitors’ rearguard on Saturday.
In their most recent two games, Chelsea defeated Brighton and Fulham, and we believe that they must defeat Burnley as well. After this horrible season begins, they cannot afford any more errors. Additionally, they won’t have any greater opportunities than this game to get three simple points. In the previous round, the hosts narrowly prevailed for the first time, and we doubt it will happen again soon.
Armando Broja stands out as a potential candidate to score for the visitors after his goal at Fulham. The Albanian’s performance at Craven Cottage should see him keep his starting spot, and he can make it two goals in as many games at Turf Moor.
