Preview of Burnley vs Chelsea Match – Team Updates and Head-to-Head Stats
Chelsea is set to return to Premier League action following their 2-0 victory over Fulham on Monday night. The Blues have encountered difficulties in finding their form this season, managing just two wins in their first seven games in the EPL.
Mauricio Pochettino’s squad aims to secure back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since March, just before the international break. They face Burnley, a team with only one win and currently positioned in the relegation zone.
Burnley will be missing Johann Gudmundsson, Manuel Benson, Darko Churlinov, and Nathan Redmond for the upcoming match. Additionally, Hjalmar Ekdal, Michael Obafemi, and Aaron Ramsey are doubtful.
Chelsea has grappled with several injuries this season, with almost eight players sidelined. Mykhailo Mudryk and Moises Caicedo are returning to training after sustaining injuries against Fulham and could be fit for the game. Midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka is available for selection, and Nicolas Jackson is ready to play after serving a one-match suspension due to accumulated yellow cards.
