The Blues are dealing with a number of injuries at the moment

Injuries have played a huge part in the development of Chelsea this season and Mauricio Pochettino has done an excellent job building confidence in the squad despite being under enormous pressure. The Blues are currently 11th in the table and face the prospect of missing European football again. Despite the injuries, the team has been unbeaten in three home games for months. 

Burnley have found life hard in the Premier League with the team languishing in 19th position and are in danger of facing relegation if the results don’t change. In spite of showing signs of huge potential, Vincent Kompany’s team has been unable to perform consistently. In the last two matches, however, they have collected four points. In the first match, they drew with West Ham while in the second match, they won 2-1 against Brentford

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 30 March at 8:30 PM IST

Location- Stamford Bridge

Form:

Chelsea (in all competitions): W-W-D-W-L

Burnley (in all competitions): W-D-L-L-L

Player to Watch

Cole Palmer (Chelsea) 

With 14 goals to his name this season as well as 12 assists for his teammates, Cole Palmer has become a key player for the Blues in a very short time since signing for the club this summer. In addition to being the team’s chief creator, he also scores as he leads the team in both departments. Through his creativity and precision in the attacking third, the Blues are regularly able to break down defences. 

Lyle Foster (Burnley) 

Due to the absence of David Datro Fofana, Lyle Foster will be given a key role in this match. In spite of not finding the net lately, Lyle Foster is second in the list of goals and assists. On the ball, he holds up play and wins aerial duels, demonstrating physicality in the final third. His teammates have benefited from his goals and assists this season. 

Match Facts

  • Chelsea are unbeaten in the last three home games
  • Burnley defeated Brentford in the last match by 2-1
