Why you should back Chelsea

The Blues are 6-1-0 in their last seven matches against the Clarets, outscoring them 20-5 and posting three straight clean sheets. They have been able to get scoring from all over the pitch since main attackers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner went down with injuries. Reece James leads the team with four goals and has two assists, and fellow wing back Ben Chilwell has scored three times. Mason Mount is a creative force in midfield, and he also has scored three times and has set up two goals. 

Chelsea really makes its mark on defense, as it has allowed three goals in the 10 matches. It holds 57.2 percent possession, the fourth-best mark in the EPL, while Burnley is second-to-last at 39.6. The Clarets also have put just 35 shots on target in the 10 games, while the Blues have allowed just 29, second-fewest in the league. 

Why you should back Burnley

The Clarets should come in with some confidence after getting their first victory of the season. Chris Wood, Maxwel Cornet and Matthew Lowton all scored in the 3-1 victory, and Cornet has scored four times in five games since joining the team in September. It was Wood’s second goal of the season, and Lowton and fellow defenders James Tarkowski and Ben Mee each have one mark in the goal column. Ashley Barnes has scored 44 goals in nine seasons with Burnley, and Matej Vydra is a talented forward, but they both are still looking to get on the score sheet.  

Burnley has scored just 10 goals, but five have come in its past two games. Manager Sean Dyche has been hamstrung by the lack of investment in players, and new ownership took over in December but it is unclear what that will mean. The Clarets are likely to sit back in this one, playing a physical match to try to frustrate the Blues. Burnley has been able to flummox opponents defensively, and it has the seventh-most passes intercepted in the EPL (152) and leads the league in aerials won (164).
