Chelsea vs Burnley Match Predictions & Match Preview 12/08/2017
Reigning Premier League title holders Chelsea and their manager Antonio Conte, in comparison to their last title-winning season, will be playing on two fronts, which requires greater squad depth and strength as Burnley are expected to build on the impressive home record they produced last term, winning 10 and drawing 6 but failed to win an away game until the only and penultimate 0-2 win over Crystal Palace.

Champions Chelsea finished seven points to Tottenham Hotspur and were the first side to win 30 games in a single Premier League season, scoring a total 93 points which was very close to beating their own record set in 2004-05.

The five-time top-flight champions have been busy in the transfer market sending second-team players on loans to Premier League rivals, though have brought in a few distinguished names: goalkeeper Willy Caballero, Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata in a £70m deal, French champions Monaco's holding midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for as much as £40m and Germany and Roma centre-back Antonio Rudiger, who might well contribute to the club's overall defensive display.

However, with new stars coming in, Nemanja Matic, a crucial figure in delivering the glory at the core of a Chelsea side, has been sold to rivals Man United and Diego Costa also seems to be on his way out of the Stamford Bridge.

In the meantime, Burnley manager Sean Dyche looks to strengthen his team's display and to tweak the away form they failed to mend throughtout the last campaign, with only one game bringing them a whole set of three points, not least because of fortune helping them overcome Crystal Palace on the turn of May last season.

While consistancy in home and away games must be the biggest concern to address, 16th-placed Burnley have sold England defender Michael Keane to Everton for upwards of £25m and the latest move away from the Turf Moor saw top scorer Andre Gray depart to Watford whose 9 goals may have helped the team remain unrelegated.

In the room of the above-mentioned players the Clarets have Jack Cork from Swansea, both Stoke City defender Phil Bardsley and forward Jonathan Walters joined the ranks.

It's very important that Chelsea are off to a flying start, and indeed playing their season-opener at Stamford Bridge could help provide that given The Blues' impressive home run (W17 L2) from last season. The last five games they played at home to Premier League rivals have finished with a winning result, since losing their second game of the season 1-2 v Crystal Palace on 01 April 2017, being in the lead on five minutes but the next six later conceding an equaliser from Wilfried Zaha followed by the winner from Christian Benteke to settle the tie.

On the other hand, Burnley's away form begged for improvement as it was the second-worst bettered only relegated Hull City's - 7 points over 19 games on the road is what they were capable of - which would have been disastrous had they not conjured up 33 points of 40 possible at the blessed Turf Moor. This time around the challenge for Sean Dyche is even bigger following the leaving of key figures out of the ranks.

With that being said, I expect an opening home win for Conte's side, say 2-0, where they will be stingy at the back not to let any in, and Alvaro Morato to score his debut Premier League goal prized at 8/11 with Bet365 to the good ahead of an intensive season facing Blues as they're joining the Champions League qualifying group phase later on.
