THE PREDICTION

Thomas Tuchel’s first match in charge of Chelsea saw the Blues held to a 0-0 draw by Wolves at Stamford Bridge. Tuchel will have taken positives out of the contest such as a clean sheet, but will be hoping for more of a cutting edge offensively against Burnley as he looks for his first Premier League victory. The Clarets meanwhile, are coming off the back of a 3-2 win over Aston Villa in a game that saw Sean Dyche’s side come from behind twice to pick up the victory. Burnley have now won their last three games in all competitions and will head into this match confident of picking up at least a point. As they did at Anfield in their 0-1 triumph over Liverpool, Dyche’s men will set up with bodies behind the ball, relentlessly pressing Chelsea and making it extremely difficult for them to break the visitors down. This will likely lead to a low scoring encounter and regardless of the result, under 2.5 goals scored should be seriously considered here.
