Last weekend felt like a big one for Chelsea.

While Thomas Tuchel has stressed there is a long way to go in the Premier League title race, his side moved three points clear of Liverpool after navigating what could have been a difficult afternoon against a Newcastle United side who sat back in the absence of Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

Clearly, the reasonably lengthy injury list is somewhat of a concern but that should ease up after the international break and, the fact is, Chelsea have scored ten goals in their last two league outings.

So then, the visit of Burnley is a rather favourable return to action on English soil. Another of the teams struggling towards the bottom of the division, Tuchel should feel confident of maintaining his lead atop the league, particularly as Manchester City and Liverpool face difficult fixtures against Manchester United and West Ham respectively.

Date, kick-off time and venue:

The Premier League meeting is scheduled for a 3pm GMT kick-off time on Saturday, November 6 2021.

The game will be held at Stamford Bridge in London.

Chelsea vs Burnley prediction

Having put Norwich City and Newcastle to the sword in similar games recently, it’s hard not to expect a Chelsea win. Burnley might be a touch more solid than those two but rarely impress away at the so-called ‘Big Six’.

Chelsea to win 2-0.
