Chelsea vs Burnley, Football Express

It’s Chelsea vs Burnley on Sunday evening at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

The Clarets are currently placed at 15th place after a convincing 3-2 win against Aston Villa. However, the Blues are looking to revive under their new coach, Thomas Tuchel.

The London side sits at 8th place in the Premier League standings. Tuchel would be eager in winning this match after a tough debut as coach against Wolves.

Chelsea vs Burnley : Preview

Chelsea developed a new style of football under their current coach, Tuchel. However, the lack of goals at Stamford Bridge remains still a concern.

New look Blues broke records like highest number of successful passes completed and the highest possession ever in a first game for a coach (78.9%). However, the attack should really improve if they would like to reach to the top.

Tuchel has adapted tactics comparable to those employed by Maurizio Sarri and Antonio Conte. However, a win might build his confidence for the next big PL fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.

However, Sean Dyche’s side are full on confidence after a stunning win against the Villans. Nick Pope looks to be in the perfect form as he would be looking for yet another clean sheet! A Liverpool shock away win might be the energy they can build upon!

In the 14 matches played between the two teams, Chelsea won 9 times whereas Burnley won two and the rest three matches ended as draws.
