Chelsea vs Burnley: Important things to know ahead of the game

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Chelsea come into their game against Burnley on a high having taken a step closer to Europa League glory, but the Blues know all too well that they cannot take their eye off the prize in the Premier League.

“Winning the Europa League is one target for the club, and for us, and it is what we are going to try to do,” said N’Golo Kante after their victory over Slavia Prague.

“We are three games away from winning that title, but we must first go for fourth place.”

With Manchester United losing – and heavily – against Everton on Sunday, it relieves some pressure on Sarri’s side in the race for a European finish, but their main goal is to return to the Champions League and to do that, with just four games left, they simply cannot afford to drop any more points.

Burnley are in top form at the moment, having put together three successive victories, and should prove a difficult opponent, but Chelsea will take confidence from the fact that they made light work of them in the reverse fixture, winning 4-0 at Turf Moor in October.
