Betting Tips for the game
Burnley took a hammering upon the recent visit to the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City were able to claim a 5-0 victory. The Clarets have managed one victory in the last four games.
Chelsea extended their recent unbeaten run against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge after a 2-2 draw with the Red Devils last weekend. This was followed by a 3-1 victory over BATE in the Europa League.
The recent game between Burnley and Chelsea also took place at Turf Moor back in April when the blues picked up a 2-1 victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Chelsea.

Burnley are given lengthy odds of 11.00 to emerge successful in the game. Yet, we would not pick this choice. The Clarets just come on the back of a game against a title contender and Chelsea are no different. The Blues have been rejuvenated by Maurizio Sarri, who has brought about a pleasing style football at the club. Even though Burnley will make it difficult for Chelsea to take three points, the Blues have a strong record on this ground with three wins in four. Our preview would pick a win for Chelsea.

Burnley vs Chelsea draw odds: 5.00
Burnley win odds: 11.00
Correct Score odds
Chelsea have been averaging around two goals per game this season. Burnley will have taken note of the issues faced by Chelsea when coming up against physical opposition. The Clarets already have a few physical players on their own and they could help find a way past Chelsea’s defence, which has not been great in recent weeks. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Chelsea 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Maurizio Sarri’s attacking outfit have been through three consecutive high-scoring fixtures, which have all witnessed over 2.5 goals without exception. Burnley have also been through a similar run with the home game against Huddersfield being the only low scoring match in the last five games across all competitions. Burnley may be in the bottom half of the table but it is wrong to underestimate their offensive strength. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals in this match.

First Goalscorer odds
Eden Hazard has seven goals for the campaign but he is a doubt for Sunday, according to the manager. After failing to feature against BATE, it would be Alvaro Morata’s turn to start against Burnley. Even though the Spaniard has struggled for goals, our first goalscorer prediction would back the forward.
