Clarets in form to trouble Chelsea


Chelsea are likely to be tested to the full on Monday evening when they host a Burnley side who have won three Premier League games in a row to move clear of the relegation zone.

The Blues head into the game at Stamford Bridge boosted by having reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, although for a second game in a row they conceded two goals in the opening ten minutes of the second half.

The previous three matches in which they conceded also saw them breached in the opening minutes of the second half, so it is clear where the concern lies for head coach Maurizio Sarri.

And with that stat in mind, you have to fancy your chances if you go with a goal to be scored between the start of the second half and the hour mark.

Another concern for the hosts would be that they lost this fixture 3-2 last season, when the Clarets roared into a three-goal lead by the half-time interval.

Burnley, total goals over 0.5 @ 1.90

Burnley have also failed to find the net in just one of their last 11 league games, so 2.05 for both teams to score in the game might be considered to be a worthwhile option.

On a similar theme to that, the visitors are 1.90 to score over 0.5 goals in the game and their industrious and undervalued strike-force of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes are sure to test the Chelsea backline to the full.

Chris Wood to score at any time @ 5.00

Barnes had scored just three league goals by the turn of the year, but has netted seven more since then, while Wood has scored three in his last two games – with both players into double figures for the campaign.

Wood at 5.00 to score at any time is a decent price to continue his good form in front of goal, while Barnes also being offered at 5.00 shows that both forwards are in the sort of form needed to bother Chelsea.
