Burnley welcome Chelsea to Turf Moor this Saturday in an important clash in the Premier League. Both sides haven’t had the start to the season they would’ve hoped for and will be looking to push ahead with three points this weekend.
Burnley sit 18th in the Premier League after seven games. With one win, one draw and five losses, Burnley have just four points.
In their last five games in all competitions Burnley have two wins, a draw and two losses. Zeki Amdouni opened the scoring against Nottingham Forest in the first half but Callum Hudson-Odoi equalised in the second half. Burnley fought on but with Lyle Foster sent off, the game ended 1 - 1. With the visit from Manchester United, Burnley fell to a 1 - 0 loss as Bruno Fernandes scored the only goal despite Burnley having more of the possession.
In the Third round of the League Cup, Burnley thrashed Salford City 4 - 0 with Sander Berge, Jacob Bruun Larsen, Dara O’Shea and Wilson Odobert all scored in the blow-out win. Miguel Almiron and Alexander Isak both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Newcastle as Burnley only registered two shots on target.
The latest outing for Burnley was their rearranged game against Luton Town. Goals from Foster and Larsen gave Burnley the 2 - 1 win over Luton.
Chelsea have had a rough start and currently sit 11th in the table with two wins, two draws and three losses in seven games, leaving them on eight points.
In their last five games in all competitions, Chelsea have two wins, a draw and two losses. Anthony Elanga scored the only goal in the 1 - 0 win for Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge despite Chelsea registering 21 shots in comparison to Forest’s seven. The trip to the Vitality Stadium ended in a goalless draw for The Blues against Bournemouth, with Raheem Sterling’s free kick being just millimetersfrom being across the line.
Ollie Watkins was the goalscorer in Aston Villa’s 1 - 0 win over Chelsea who had Malo Gusto sent off early in the second half for a bad tackle. However, Chelsea’s fortunes changed in the Third round of the League Cup against Brighton. Nicolas Jackson scored the only goal as Chelsea were back to winning ways with the 1 - 0 win.
The most recent outing for Chelsea was against Fulham on Monday night. Mykhailo Mudryk scored his first goal for Chelsea along with Armando Broja who was back on the scoresheet after a 11 month injury as Chelsea won 2 - 0.
Burnley and Chelsea have met 104 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1905. Not much separates the two sides in this fixture with Chelsea winning 41 times and Burnley winning 38 times, with the other 25 meetings ending in a share of the points.
