Burnley v Chelsea: match preview | premier league

Burnley’s good run ended against Leicester on Tuesday, but seven points from three previous games saw them salvage their season. Freedom is awfully close, if they beat Chelsea and Everton lose to Tottenham then Burnley will climb free. With all the fuss surrounding Roman Abramovich’s sale of Chelsea, you could say there’s no better time to try and catch them off guard. Luton came close to doing it in the Cup on Wednesday but it’s quite likely Thomas Tuchel’s side talk at half-time reminded Chelsea of ​​their status. Sean Dyche’s side will fight, but they might be better off saving their energy for a huge relegation game with Brentford next week. Graham Searles
