Chelsea is welcoming Burnley to Stamford Bridge in round 21 in the English Premier League.
Chelsea hasn’t been looking too good as of late, and they have fired coach Lampard and hired coach Tuchel, a German expert who led PSG to the Champions League finals last season. Chelsea has lost only 1 of their last 4 games, and they looked good against Wolverhampton a few days ago. Chelsea was the better team in that game, and they have had 78% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 12 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a high 93% of the correct passes. Chelsea did everything right in this game, on both ends, but they just couldn’t score a goal. The final result of this match was 0-0. Thanks to their slump, Chelsea has dropped a lot of points, and they dropped a lot of spots in the standings. Chelsea is now in 10th place with 30 points. Abraham has scored 6 goals for Chelsea so far this season, while Zouma and Werner added 4 goals each. Chilwell and Werner added 4 assists each. Kante is the only injured player for Chelsea at the moment. I think Chelsea is a good team, and they should have given Lampard a little bit more time, but I guess that doesn’t matter now. Tuchel is a more experienced coach, and he will for sure bring something new to this young Chelsea team.
Burnley has been playing really well as of late, and they have won 5 of their last 7 games while losing the other 2. During their last 3 games, Burnley has won all 3, scored 7 goals, and conceded only 2 goals. Burnley has been weak in the attacking end so far this season, and they have scored only 13 goals, but their defense has been outstanding, and Burnley has conceded only 24 goals. In their last EPL game, Burnley was hosting Aston Villa, and they have had only 38% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and low 59% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this game, and despite losing since the 14th minute, and in the 68th minute, Burnley was somehow able to score 3 goals in the second half, and they have won this match 3-2. Burnley is in 15th place with 22 points, and they are 8 points above the relegation zone. With only 4 goals, Wood is the leading goalscorer for Burnley, while Mee and Barnes added 2 goals each. Taylor, Barnes, and Brownhill are all injured for Burnley at this time. Burnley’s job is pretty much done, but just to be safe, they should win a few more games to secure their Premier League status.
Burnley hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Chelsea, and Chelsea is the better team here. The trends are on Chelsea’s side in this matchup, and it’s time for Tuchel’s first win as Chelsea’s coach.
