Recommended bets

Chelsea have never lost a Premier League game at Turf Moor, winning six out seven. However, after drawing 1-1 at Stamford Bridge in November, Burnley are looking to avoid defeat against Chelsea across a league season for the first time since 1971. The Blues have won 11 of their last 13 away league matches that kick off at 15:00 on a Saturday.

Chelsea to win and both teams to score NO is 5/4.

Chelsea to win and under 2.5 goals is 9/4.

Kai Havertz is 9/2 to break the deadlock and 6/4 to score anytime.

For just the second time since 23 January, Chelsea are back in Premier League action.

Since beating Tottenham six weeks ago, the Blues have played in just one league fixture, a last-gasp victory over Crystal Palace.

This has been due to their cup commitments, firstly lifting the FIFA Club World Cup over in the U.A.E.

But, last weekend, they could not add more silverware, losing to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup Final on penalties after an enthralling goalless draw.

The first 21 spot-kicks were all scored until Kepa Arrizabalaga, sent on to keep out penalties, skied his miles over the bar and into the Wembley night sky.

Three days later, Thomas Tuchel’s side found themselves at the rather contrasting setting of Kenilworth Road for an FA Cup tie.

A shock appeared to be on the cards as Luton Town led 2-1 at half time, only for Timo Werner and then Romelu Lukaku to ensure the Blues progressed.

Back in the league, Chelsea are 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and, despite having two games in hand, that is an insurmountable gap.

As a result, its’ all about ensuring they finish in the top four so they can focus on trying to win the FA Cup and retain their Champions League crown.

Burnley meanwhile are in desperate need of points to ensure their top-flight survival.

The Clarets ended February strongly with back-to-back wins over Brighton and Tottenham before a solid 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst.

However, on the first day of March, Sean Dyche’s side were beaten 2-0 by Leicester City, conceding twice in the final eight minutes.

So, Burnley remain in the relegation zone but could end the day as high as 15th with a shock victory here.

Will Chelsea be too strong at Turf Moor?

Sean Dyche does have a noteworthy injury concern as he looks to beat the European and world champions.

Ben Mee went off in the first half against Leicester and is a major doubt for this one; Nathan Collins will deputise if he is unavailable.

Charlie Taylor is fit again so will continue at left-back, while Connor Roberts could keep his place over Matt Lowton and Phil Bardsley on the other side.

Elsewhere, Josh Brownhill and Ashley Westwood started in midfield so both could keep their places over Jack Cork.

Aaron Lennon has nailed down that positition on the right-wing courtesy of recent goals against Manchester United and Brighton.

Maxwell Cornet, who has missed some matches recently, will lead the line alongside Wout Weghorst.

After a gruelling, energy-sapping 120 minutes at Wembley, Thomas Tuchel rotated heavily for Wednesday’s trip to Luton.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek started in the back three, and got man of the match, but experiment isn’t likely to continue here.

With Andreas Christensen and César Azpilicueta injured, Reece James, who’s come off the bench in the last two, could start for the first time in 2022.

In midfield, Jorginho and Saúl Ñíguez were the midweek duo, suggesting N’Golo Kanté and Mateo Kovačić will come back in here.

Forgotten man Kenedy made his first Chelsea appearance since 17 January 2018 in that one, but that isn’t likely to lead to more minutes here.

Mason Mount was the only man to start against both Liverpool and Luton, highlighting his importance to Tuchel.

Romelu Lukaku has scored three times at Turf Moor in his career but, despite netting on Wednesday, could be back on the bench here.

Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are expected to return to the forward line.
