With the Premier League table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s top division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, European hopefuls Burnley will welcome Chelsea to Turf Moor on Thursday night.
For the hosts, it has been undoubtedly Burnley’s most successful season in the clubs history. With Europa League football still looking incredibly likely, Burnley will be looking to finish their season in similar form. After 33 Premier League games this season, Burney have won 14, drawn 10 and lost nine, scoring 33 and conceding 29, Burnley now boasts the third best defensive record in the division. With a points tally of 52, Burnley now sit seventh in the table and are now nine points ahead of Leicester in the battle for European football and are now amazingly just two points behind Arsenal. As for their recent form, despite struggling at the turn of the New Year, Burnley are back to winning ways, the Clarets have won their last five on the bounce and pulled of a 3-2 win against Chelsea on the opening game of the season.
As for the visitors on Thursday night, it has been a disappointing year for the defending champions and now look set to finish outside the top four. After 33 games this season, Chelsea have won 18, drawn six and lost nine, scoring 57 and conceding 33 in return. With a points tally of 60, Chelsea now sit fifth in the Premier League table and are chasing down a seven-point deficit to Tottenham with five games remaining. As for the defending champions current form, after coming from behind to pick up a win against struggling Southampton on Saturday, Chelsea have two wins in their last five, losing two and drawing one. More worryingly for the Blues, they have now not kept a clean sheet in their last eight outings.
