Looking to build off of their thumping European victory in midweek, Chelsea will turn their attention back to Premier League duties when they make the trip to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Putting on a real clinic as they secured a 4-0 victory away at Russian outfit Krasnodar on Wednesday evening, the former champions will now be desperate to bring an end to their recent domestic rut that has seen them win just one of their last five top-flight appearances.

On the flip side, while Chelsea might be boosted by their display earlier in the week, Burnley were last seen getting hit with a late 1-0 defeat at home against Tottenham on Monday night and find themselves in the midst of a real struggle.

Managing to collect just a single point from their opening five Premier League appearances so far this season, the Clarets might also be worried by their most recent meeting against the Blues.

Hit with a 3-0 defeat when they last faced off against Chelsea back in January, you might be interested to know that a similar away victory on Saturday can be found priced at 1/2 with Betfair.

Burnley’s attacking issues

While Sean Dyche might have praised his side’s display against Tottenham on Monday night, Burnley once again left Turf Moor with nothing to show for their efforts after the Lilywhites snatched a late 1-0 win in Lancashire.

Managing to muster just a single point from their opening five Premier League appearances so far this season and with that sole point coming thanks to a dull 0-0 draw against a returning West Brom, many feel that Burnley could find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle this year.

Drawing another blank on Monday, there is no doubt that Dyche will have a growing headache over his side’s continued problems in front of goal.

Failing to find the net in back-to-back appearances and with just a single goal to their name in their last five contests across all competitions, you might be interested to know that Burnley are priced at 11/8 with Unibet to draw another blank at Turf Moor this weekend.

Chelsea’s European statement

While Chelsea might have continued to show a string of domestic issues since opening the New Year, Frank Lampard’s side did manage to put on a real European clinic earlier in the week.

Eventually leaving Russian outfit Krasnodar with a 4-0 victory to show for their efforts, the former England midfield will be hugely excited by his side’s recent improvements at the back.

With summer arrival Edouard Mendy becoming an instant hit after recording his third straight clean sheet between the sticks in midweek, fans around West London have also been vocal about Timo Werner’s performances since making the move from RB Leipzig.

Stepping up and smashing home from the spot after Jorginho’s penalty miss earlier in the evening, you might be interested to know that the German ace can be found priced at 20/21 with William Hill to bag his third Premier League strike at Turf Moor.

Elsewhere, also getting himself on the scoresheet away on foreign soil, former Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech could be in line to make his first full top-flight debut on Saturday.
