Thus, Chelsea lost again important points and their claim to be in the top four is diminishing with each round. Before the upcoming fight with Burnley, the "retirees" occupy only eighth place in the Premier League standings. They have 30 points to their credit, which is seven points less than the fourth Liverpool.
Prior to Tuchel's arrival his predecessor, Frank Lampard, had been struggling to stabilize the London team. The club's management spent a lot in the summer and was seriously counting on the fight for medals. However, Lampard did not manage to blind a combat-ready team showing stable results. Especially in the last stretch of the season.
Chelsea have won just two wins in their last nine games. London beat Fulham with a score of 1:0 away in the derby and West Ham at home with a score 3:0. The victory by the “hammer” team is the last in the current championship for the “pensioners” in their home arena. After this match at home, the Blues managed to draw with Aston Villa (1:1) and Wolverhampton (0:0) and also lost to Manchester City (0:2).
Thomas Tuchel will not be able to count on N'Golo Kante in the upcoming match.
This victory was the second in a row for Burnley in the league and the third, given the success in the FA Cup over Fulham (3:0). In the previous round of the English Championship, the "Burgundy" knocked out the reigning champion "Liverpool" (1:0).
In general, in comparison with the beginning of the championship Sean Deich's wards have noticeably improved. For the last ten rounds they have only three defeats. Burnley lost to Leeds, West Ham and Manchester United with the same score 0:1. At the same time, the team won as many as five victories during this segment.
Thanks to this game the "burgundy" left the relegation zone in the championship standings and climbed to 15th place. Burnley is now nine points away from the relegation zone.
The participation of midfielder Josh Brownhill, defender Charlie Taylor and striker Ashley Barnes is still in question.
Our prediction is a total under 2.5 goals for 2.17 in BC 1xBet.
