Chelsea vs Burnley 01/11/2020
The 2019-20 campaign of Chelsea (11-3-7 win-draw-loss, 36 points) under new manager Frank Lampard has been somewhat impressive as the Blues are in the top four of the Premier League table that merits qualification for the UEFA Champions League group stages. They are five points ahead of fifth-running Manchester United despite getting a draw against lower-ranked Brighton and Hove Albion in their New Year’s Day match.
The Blues went ahead in the first 10 minutes of the match after a goal by Cesar Azpilicueta. The lead stayed in the next 74 minutes until Alireza Jahanbakhsh made an incredible bicycle kick that tied the game. It was a sorry draw for Chelsea as their gap against third-running Manchester City widened to eight points with 17 fixtures remaining.
Tammy Abraham will continue to be the focal point of the Blues’ offense so as Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic. The defense, meanwhile, must keep goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga uncompromised between the pipes to avert an upset from Burnley.
Players to Watch: Tammy Abraham (12 goals, 3 assists), Mason Mount (5 G, 2 A); Christian Pulisic (5 G, 2 A); Willian (4 G, 4 A); N’Golo Kante (3 G, 0 A).
After suffering losses against Everton, Manchester United and Aston Villa, 15th-running Burnley (7-3-11, 24 points) will need to go all out against Chelsea to avoid sliding further down the Premier League table. In their latest outing against Aston Villa, the Clarets allowed two goals in the first half to stumble to a 1-2 defeat.
Chris Wood will try to lead Burnley’s offense against Chelsea and catch up with midtable teams. Their defense must improve as well to stand a chance against the Blues, which have tallied 36 goals in 21 outings and is tied for fourth-best in the league.
Players to Watch: Chris Wood (8 goals, 0 assist); Ashley Barnes (6 G, 0 A); Jay Rodriguez (3 G, 0 A); Jeff Hendrick (2 G, 1 A); Dwight McNeill (1 G, 4 A).
