Chelsea v Burnley Betting Preview
Chelsea hosts Burnley on Saturday at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, as the Blues seek to continue their winning run. The home side have recorded two wins out of two in the Premier League so far and are odds of 3/10 with Stan James to make it three successive wins. Last time out the Blues recorded a late 2-1 win at Watford. Etienne Capoue opened the scoring for the Hornets, but a goal on 80 minutes from substitute Michy Batshuayi and an 87th minute winner from Diego Costa was enough to give Antonio Conte’s side the win.

Spanish international striker Costa has now scored in both of the Blues league games so far this season. The Blues have won just two of their last 11 home Premier League games, but eight of those games have finished in draws. The former champions failed to win any of their last four home games in the Premier League last season. These two teams have met just four times in the Premier League, with Chelsea recording three wins and the other game finishing in a draw. The one draw came last time these two teams met at Stamford Bridge back in 2015. The side from Lancashire have not won at Stamford Bridge in the league since 1971 in the old League Division One. However, the Clarets won a penalty shootout at Chelsea in the League Cup in 2008 after the game had finished 1-1 after normal and extra-time.

Burnley have enjoyed a mixed start to their return to the Premier League and are underdogs to win this clash at . The Clarets recorded a 2-0 win over Liverpool in their last Premier League outing. Burnley took a two-goal lead in the first half through goals from strikers Sam Vokes and Andre Gray. The victory came after Sean Dyche’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat against Swansea on the opening day of the season. The top-flight new boys are unbeaten in 11 away games in the league, recording eight wins, although that record was in the Championship.

Team News:
The home side are still without young centre-back Kurt Zouma, who has a long-term injury. Brazilian midfielder Willian missed the trip to Watford, but is expected to be fit to return for this clash. The former Shakhtar star could return in place of Pedro, while Cesc Fabregas is competing with Oscar for a spot in the centre of midfield. Michy Batshuayi has a chance of starting having had an impact as a substitute in the last two matches. Burnley have close to a fully-fit squad for this squad, with striker Ashley Barnes the only doubt for this clash. Sean Dyche may name an unchanged team from last time out in the Premier League.

Possible Chelsea team line-up: Courtois, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Willian, Kante, Matic, Hazard, Costa, Batshuayi
Possible Burnley team line-up: Heaton, Lowton, Keane. Mee, Ward, Boyd, Marney, Defour, Arfield, Gray, Vokes

Betting Tip:
I am not going to say anything shocking here. For me this will be a Chelsea win, but the Clarets may prove slightly stubborn opposition and are highly unlikely to capitulate in this clash.
