Chelsea vs Burnley: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

Chelsea will today look to show they have turned a corner for what feels like the umpteenth time when they host Burnley.

Stuck in 11th place in the Premier League table, the Blues have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six league games while enjoying some respite of-sorts in the cups.


Having conceded twice in each of their last four games, yet still managing to win three of them and draw the other, Mauricio Pochettino will hope his side can show a bit more control against Burnley.

The Clarets beat Brentford last time out to go within five points of safety amid the points-deduction sagas going on above them.

But their dreadful record against Chelsea over the years has not abated despite the capital club’s recent decline.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs Burnley is scheduled for a 3pm GMT kick-off today, Saturday, March 30, 2024.

The match will take place at Stamford Bridge in west London.

Chelsea vs Burnley prediction

Fofana’s absence for Burnley deprives them of their chief attacking threat against a Chelsea team capable of scoring plenty of goals, but struggling to keep them out. Just like at Turf Moor, the Blues should be able to overpower the Clarets.

Chelsea to win, 3-1.
