EPL: Clarets vs Chelsea

Over the past 47 years, if chosen a forest to hunt, Chelsea will surely choose Turf Moor, where fans of the Blues call "the land of fun hunting". Because if only the achievements in the highest league in England (the First Division before and the Premier League of the present time), Chelsea's worst performance at Turf Moor is only a 1-1 draw in 2017. Part the rest are of course all victories.

The last time Chelsea lost a match at Burnley's home 47 years ago: August 1973, the Blues lost 0-1. Burnley's goalscorer that year was striker Frank Casper. This year he was… 75 years old. 

Chelsea are burning the inspiration of the NHM after going through 3 consecutive games without conceding - an impressive achievement than expected after more than a year of conceding an average of 1.5 goals / game. In this series of clean sheets, the most prominent is goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. The stuntman for Kepa has kept the last 2 Premier League matches clean and if he continues this clean sheet, he will become the first goalkeeper to launch Chelsea with 3 clean sheets in the Premier League since the case of legend. phone of Petr Cech in 2004.

The firmness of the defense also seems to have inspired the attackers to shine. In a 4-0 win over Krasnodar in the Champions League in the middle of last week, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic both scored their first goal of the new season. Thus, after only 10 matches, the Blues had 13 different players scoring. Statistics show that the variety of detonators of Chelsea is very clear.

This abundance is the biggest fulcrum for Chelsea fans to expect the home team to continue to prolong their charm with Turf Moor Stadium, while also prolonging the remarkable scoring performance away from home in the Premier League. Statistics show that Chelsea has scored 45 goals on away field since the beginning of last season so far. During the same period, Man City was the only team to score more away goals than Chelsea.

Contrary to Chelsea's impressive performance, Burnley has yet to win a Premier League match in the new season so far. Even the home field is no longer a strong support for Burnley when they have lost all 3 matches at Turf Moor. If losing this match, Burnley will be the first time in 10 years losing a row of 4 consecutive home matches. In fact, for four consecutive months, Burnley could not win any home game in the Premier League.

The record against the Big Six continues to bring pessimism to NHM Burnley. In the last 24 Premier League matches against Big Six representatives, Burnley won only 1 match (winning Tottenham in February 2019). So if nothing unexpected happens, maybe Turt Moor will once again fly the white flag on the day Chelsea visit.
