Chelsea vs Burnley Prediction & Betting tips
Chelsea and Burnley start the season with a mutual meeting, and this gives Burnley a good test. The current title holder obviously has some evidence and defending the title is a good start.
Not everyone has the same confidence in Chelsea this season. Analysts believe that The Blues could have improved better and that more and more competition has invested more. There is something to say, because until now, Chelsea has only strengthened with Antonio Rüdiger, Alvaro Morata, Willy Caballero and Timoue Bakayoko. Especially because of the transfer of Morata, the views are divided because Diego Costa has performed excellently over the years.
It is only the question whether one Spaniard can forget about the other. Morata could still get heavy in the Premier League and Diego Costa is obviously a very different type of spit than Morata. Morata does not fit into the current system, but Antonio Conte will know what he is doing. However, the preparation of Chelsea has been little hopeful.
Although Chelsea managed to win 0-3 from Arsenal, it was the case. Matches against Bayern Munich (2-3) and Internazionale (1-2) were lost and also the Community Shield was not spent on Chelsea. Chelsea could not hold a 0-1 lead and after the red card for Pedro, Arsenal made the equalizer in the final phase. Penalty’s had to yield and they were better taken by Arsenal. So Chelsea has not been able to convince and it seems that there is a lot of work at the store.
For Burnley this year will be a heavy go, but they are not used to it anymore. In the present times, Burnley will always fight against degradation, and this year – probably – no different. Burnley has not been able to strengthen and last year in his good home form, but it was a unique achievement. Another season to take so many points at home is almost impossible.
Burnley’s strengths this season are not very impressive. With Michael Keane, Burnley lost an important link at the center and, while receiving a lot of money, there was not much to come back to. Phil Bardsley, Jack Cork, Charlie Taylor and Jon Walters are players with experience, but were far from undisputed base players at their previous clubs and did not seem to be the correct names to keep this Burnley far from the degradation zone.
Last year, however, the situation was comparable, and Burnley could of course again surprise this year. In any case, The Clarets have been able to make some trust in the preparation. Against the lesser gods (Shamrock Rovers, Alfreton Town, Preston North End), there was won and Nottingham Forest was matched. The preparation was finished with a handsome 2-1 win on Celta de Vigo. A surprising result that in any case gives the necessary confidence, also for the visit to Chelsea.
