Chelsea are in great shape and show a very effective game. In the previous weekend Thomas Tuchel's team got another victory in the English Premier League. The Blues scored three unanswered goals against Newcastle United on the road. Chelsea have 25 points and continue to lead in the EPL table. This week, the London club had a successful away game against Malmo 1-0 (Champions League group stage).
Last weekend Burnley finally managed to break their winless streak in the English Premier League. The team met with Brentford at home. Unexpectedly, Burnley players were able to show a good game against a very difficult opponent - 3:1. This is the first win for the Clarets in the current EPL season. With 7 points Burnley is in 18th place in the Premier League table.

Expert Betting Tips
Burnley are approaching this game in good spirits, as Sean Dyche's team finally managed to get their first win of the current EPL campaign. However, the Clarets face a tough match at Stamford Bridge Stadium against the tournament leaders who are doing well without their main attacking players. I believe that Burnley's defenders will not keep up with the London club's speedy players in many game episodes and will often commit a foul. Therefore, my main prediction for the upcoming match is yellow cards for Burnley. I also suggest betting on the home team handicap.
- Burnley yellow cards TO 1.5 for 1.83;
- Chelsea handicap -1.5 for 1.86;
- Yellow cards TO 2.5 for 2.05
