Sean Dyche’s side have long been at the bottom of the APL standings, sitting in last place. “The Bordeaux have scored just 21 points in the 25 rounds played. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 32. However, last month was more than successful for the home side: in 6 games they lost only twice, beating both Manchester United (1-1) and Arsenal (0-0). In the last 4 games, there have been 2 wins, a draw and a defeat. This week, the hosts lost 0-2 to Leicester.
The Czech holding midfielder Maciej Vydra and another midfielder Johann Gudmundsson are sidelined. The Dutch attacker Wout Weghorst, who joined the Chelsea squad from Wolfsburg to replace Newcastle’s Chris Wood, also contributed to the team’s progress with a goal and two assists.
The Aristocrats are the top three teams in the Premier League this season. Thomas Tuchel’s side have picked up 50 points in 25 games. Only Liverpool and Manchester City are placed higher in the table. They have scored 49 goals and conceded 18. There have been seven victories in the last 10 meetings. Last Sunday, the team lost to Liverpool in the League Cup final in a dramatic penalty shoot-out. Last week, the Blues narrowly defeated Luton Town 2-3 in the FA Cup last eight, with the Blues trailing 2-1 after the first half.
Romelu Lukaku is back on form, Jorginho (6 goals) and Mason Mount (7 goals) are progressing. Right-back Reece James is back from injury, with only defender Ben Chilwell still out injured.
This season, the teams met in the first leg of the domestic championship, and then the underdogs pulled off a sensational encounter – the game at Stamford Bridge ended in a 1-1 draw. However, that result is unlikely to have been logical as the Londoners took six more shots on goal and conceded the equaliser in the closing stages.
Burnley vs Chelsea
It was announced the other day that long-time Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has put the club up for sale (due to sanctions). The Russian billionaire has made a real business out of the Aristocrats, and the players will surely want to repay him with a successful performance for the rest of the season. “Burnley are relegated to the bottom of the table, having picked up only 12 points from a possible 26 in home games this season. We’re predicting a win for the visitors.
