A high-stakes Premier League fixture is set to unfold at Stamford Bridge this weekend, as Chelsea prepares to face Burnley with hopes of surging into the top half of the Premier League table.

Even though Chelsea has had a tough season so far, with 10 losses out of 27 fixtures, it's currently on a four-game unbeaten run and remains eager to end the season on a high note. Mauricio Pochettino's men have secured a spot in the FA Cup semi-final and will be up against current champions Manchester City for a place in the final.

The Blues, who now sit a point behind 10th-placed Newcastle, expect that victory over relegation-threatened Burnley can potentially propel them into ninth place, depending on the results of the weekend's other matches.

Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany’s Burnley seems poised for an unfortunate return to the Championship, having collected only 17 points from their 29 games thus far. The Clarets are desperate for points with just nine games left, and despite survival challenges, their hunger for survival may prove to be an unexpected obstacle for Chelsea.

Burnley's defence has proven to be a concern for the team, having conceded a high 63 goals this season - exceeded only by Sheffield United, who conceded 74 goals. However, Burnley finds solace in the fact that Chelsea’s backline has given way to 45 goals all season. This detail, coupled with an average of 1 goal per game for Burnley, suggests Saturday's match may not end without a fight.

Looking at past record, Chelsea hasn't lost a match to Burnley in their last 10 league meetings. Moreover, the Blues have been unbeaten in 21 of their last 25 home games across all competitions. However, with both teams scoring in Chelsea's last six Premier League matches, Burnley could possibly repeat the goal they managed in their last encounter at Stamford Bridge back in 2021.

An early Burnley goal could disrupt Stamford Bridge's equilibrium. Interestingly, Burnley has led the scoring in 43% of their away league games this season, while Chelsea has allowed opponents to take the lead first in 38% of their home games.

With Chelsea predicted to score over 3.5 goals at odds of 2.17 with Supabets, a Chelsea victory and both teams scoring at odds of 2.40, and Burnley cited as the initial goal scorers at odds of 3.70, Saturday's game promises to be an exciting rollercoaster ride.

Match Prediction:
Chelsea to win
