English Premier League
Who: Burnley v Chelsea
When: Sunday 12th February, 13.30 UK time
Live on: Sky Sports 1

Chelsea have suffered just one Premier League defeat since the beginning of October and now visit a Burnley team aiming to secure an eighth successive competitive victory at Turf Moor.

Although Burnley have lost seven consecutive league games on away soil including a weekend 2-1 loss at Watford when reduced to ten players early in the first half, they have become a formidable unit on home territory winning all four matches this year without conceding a goal. Odds of 7.50 are available for the Clarets earning another three points on Sunday and a third 1-0 win in four Premier League home matches can be backed at 17.00.

The absence of Jeff Hendrick due to suspension will be a blow to Burnley but they are available at 2.50 to score exactly 1 goal in this encounter while Sam Vokes has opened the scoring in five competitive wins at Turf Moor this term and can be backed at 12.00 to be First Goalscorer.

Fellow striker Andre Gray netted in two home victories for Burnley towards the end of last year and he is offered at 4.33 for featuring on the score sheet while being quoted at 12.00 to find the net in another home win for Burnley.

Ahead of their visit to Turf Moor, Chelsea will be aiming to win their eighth game on the road since the beginning of October although they have claimed victory in just one of three previous away contests. Odds of 1.44 are available for the Blues to earn another three points and with the team registering six clean sheets in their latest nine away matches, a Chelsea victory without conceding a goal can be backed at 2.10.

It is worth noting that Chelsea have opened the scoring with first half goals in ten of their eleven previous competitive fixtures and are priced at 1.91 to be leading at half-time. Odds of 3.75 are also available for Diego Costa to become First Goalscorer to the fourth time since the beginning of December.

Costa has also netted in three away victories from mid-November onwards and is offered at 2.00 to find the net in another Chelsea victory whereas Pedro is available at 2.50 to score his fifth competitive goal this year and defender Marcos Alonso can be backed at 4.50 to find the net for the fourth time during 2017.

Burnley are available at 10.00 to claim victory against Chelsea via one clear goal with the Blues quoted at 3.50 and
4.00 for one and two goal winning margins respectively. Odds of 8.50 are also being offered on Chelsea repeating their 3-0 win from the reverse fixture and 1.83 for the Premier League leaders to record a clean sheet.

Other Available Bets:

A draw is 4.33.
A 0-0 draw is 11.00.
Sam Vokes netting in a 1-0 victory for Burnley is 121.00.
Diego Costa scoring first in 2-0 and 2-1 wins for Chelsea is 12.00 and 19.00 respectively.
