On Thursday night in the quarter-final second leg of the Europa League celebrated the Chelsea Football Club (5th place, 66 points) as the first English club ever eleven victories in a European Cup season and drew thanks to a first superb half against Slavia Prague in the semifinals. At the beginning of May there will be a guest appearance at Eintracht Frankfurt. This leaves the Blues’ only title chance in the first season under coach Maurizio Sarri alive. At the same time the first European Cup triumph since 2013 the club would secure the Champions League participation for the upcoming season. The blues can still reach that goal through the league, but suffered a setback last weekend by league leaders Liverpool due to a much too defensive and anxious approach. Home against Burnley (ranked 14, 39 points) is therefore a victory for the blues.
Today’s Football Prediction Chelsea vs Burnley
The bookmakers are at Chelsea vs Burnley according to their odds suspect a home win of the blues. The Clarets were able to practically stop the relegation with the success over Cardiff in the past week, even if mathematically not everything is in the towel. A walk like the 4-0 in the first leg will not be the match for Chelsea. Burnley was in a strong shape especially in the calendar year 2019 and is by far not so easy to overcome on the defensive. So at Chelsea vs. Burnley, our prediction is for a tip on Monday night “Under 2.5 Goals”. Chelsea have lost just one (15-4-1) from their past 20 Premier League fixtures at home’s Stamford Bridge. In 1994, under coach Glenn Hoddle on Boxing Day a 2: 3 against Manchester United. Burnley, meanwhile, has never played a draw in the Premier League on Monday (three wins, six defeats).
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
On the home strength of the blues you can rely. Not only in the Europa League, when on Thursday evening with a 4: 3 home win against Slavia Prague the semi-final ticket could be booked. Chelsea scored four goals in the first half before a weak start to the second half followed as often. Compared to the Czechs, the Blues conceded conceding goals just as they did last month against Everton, in Cardiff or in the most recent away fixture in Liverpool, shortly after the restart. In Liverpool, Chelsea netted two goals in the first eight minutes of the second half, two goals in nine minutes against Prague. A weak spot that Chelsea has to clear quickly. In Liverpool, there was also the sixth away defeat in a row in a top six counterparty. Chelsea conceded 16 goals in these six games. At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea gives a completely different picture. Only one of the past 20 Premier League home games was lost there (12-7-1). In December, there was a 0-1 loss to Leicester. No team had to concede fewer goals this season than the Blues (ten, like Liverpool). So it is clear that Chelsea against Burnley in terms of odds of all betting sites is the first contender for three points.
Against Prague benefited Chelsea for the fifth time this season from an own goal of the opponent. Only Man City (seven) and Arsenal (six) beat more often from the clumsiness of the opposite profit. In addition, the Blues advanced to Man City to the second Premier League team, which could crack the 100-goal mark. Half of these Premier League goals involved Eden Hazard. The Belgian world-class player also scored nine times in his 17 Premier League fixture fixtures. No other Chelsea kicker will score more goals in the Premier League that day. Hazard hit West Ham twice in his last Monday match in early April. Coach Sarri was able to reassure fans who feared Hazard would have hurt himself worse against Prague. A mission on Monday does not seem to be a problem. We do not believe in a new Tor Festival. Rather, between Chelsea and Nottingham our prediction is a tip to “under 2.5 goals”. However, Antonio Rüdiger, Ethan Ampadu and Marcos Alonso are missing. Pedro could keep his place in the team after three offenses against Slavia.

Burnley – Statistics & Current Form
Burnley scored three Premier League wins in a row for the second time this season in the last Premier League match day. Burnley last managed more threes in series in April 2018, when five league matches were won sequentially. After a catastrophic first half of the season, the Clarets had only twelve points after 19 matchdays and took a relegation place. Meanwhile Burnley ranks fifth in the 2019 Anniversary Table with 24 points. The Clarets even brought in the calendar year 2019 a counter more than Chelsea. However, coach Sean Dyche’s team are just underdogs on Monday night at Chelsea against Burnley, according to odds. The recent good performances of Clarets, however, prompt us at Chelsea against Burnley to the prediction to give a tip to under 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Burnley has eight points ahead of the only remaining relegation place to be awarded. The Turf Moor will also experience upcoming Premier League football.
A guarantee of success was the return to the well-tried, classic 4-4-2 system, in which the two strikers Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood complement each other perfectly. New Zealander Wood scored the most goals of all Burnley players (20) since the 2017/18 season. In addition, the attacker was directly involved in his last two Premier League games in four matches (three goals, a template). For this, Wood previously needed eleven league games. With Dwight McNeil, the Clarets also have a young man in their ranks, who has played in the past few months in the notebooks of top clubs. In this season, the 19-year-old was directly involved in eight Premier League goals (three goals, five assists) and comes together with Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham) on the best value for a teenager this season. The last youngster to score a Premier League goal against Chelsea was Marcus Rashford in April 2017 with Man United. Steven Defour, Aaron Lennon, Peter Crouch and Phil Bardsley are injured for the trip to the English capital.
