" Burnley vs Chelsea prediction, preview, team news and more | Premier League 2020-21

 Chelsea travels to Turf Moor to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, looking to build on a streak of three straight clean sheets.

Chelsea finally snapped a draw streak with a 4-0 win over FC Krasnodar in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. Hakim Ziyech had an outstanding game in his first start at Chelsea, and he will be looking to rack up some wins now to put the points on the board.

Chelsea was cautious and didn't really have enough attacking threat in their last league game - a 0-0 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Burnley has gotten off to a steamy start to his season and has only won one point in his first five games.

They competed quite well in their last game against Tottenham Hotspur, but it was not enough as many goals from Son Heung-Min earned Spurs the points.

Burnley vs Chelsea team news

Burnley will continue to miss Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Matt Lowton, who are injured and excluded from this game. Ashley Barnes is likely to continue alongside Chris Wood at the top, with Burnley looking to go straight and fast to his two forwards.

Injuries: Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Matt Lowton

Suspensions: None

Chelsea has no real injury concerns at the moment, apart from Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has a shoulder problem. Lampard complained after the Champions League game about fixed congestion and the Premier League's rejection of the rule to use five substitutes. So changes are expected from the Chelsea boss for this game.

Injuries: Kepa Arrizabalaga

Suspensions: None

Burnley vs Chelsea prediction

Burnley is in dire shape and can't buy a win right now. Chelsea, on the other hand, appears to have found defensive stability at last, with Edouard Mendy having kept three clean sheets on the rebound.

We are predicting an easy victory for Chelsea in this game, against a Burnley side lacking in form and confidence.

Prediction: Burnley 0-2 Chelsea
