Chelsea’s place at the top of the EPL will be further subjected to test when they host Burnley this weekend.
Sean Dyche’s would be keen to mastermind a shock win like Chelsea did suffer against West Brom back in Thomas Tuchel’s early days at the London club.

Burnley’s defensive tendencies

The Blues no doubt have amazing attacking options especially with the injury-laden Christian Pulisic back from injury to boost the Chelsea squad.
And on this note, Chelsea must take an early measure to break down the opposing side in this fixture.

Burnley’s ability to record impressive results have been a major point of note whenever they come up against the big boys.
They’ve threatened the like of Arsenal, Manchester United and even Chelsea at some point in the past seasons especially during Eden Hazard’s time at Chelsea.
But with a renewed confidence found for the Blues, this may not be the case here even though Sean Dyche’s is not ignorant of the entire Chelsea team and their overwhelming strategy.
Sean Dyche’s match antics

The Blues would advocate for a fair game which would see their quality come on board on the pitch.
