Burnley v Chelsea: match preview

on 30 October 2020

Burnley were somewhat unlucky not to get something from Tottenham in their last game, they certainly made life difficult for José Mourinho’s side. Sean Dyche feels Burnley are coming back into form but Chelsea will be another tough challenge for a side in the bottom three. Everyone knows how Burnley play; Chelsea, like Tottenham, have a few more subtle variations, but anyone visiting Turf Moor needs to be up for a fight and, with a takeover looming, the home side need to climb away from the relegation positions.
