For this week’s Premier League betting tips, one of the matches we are focussing on is Chelsea vs Burnley. This will be Thomas Tuchel’s second game in charge since the Blues shocked the galaxy by sacking club legend Frank Lampard on Monday. Meanwhile, Burnley will be hoping to continue their recent, good form and pull further away from the relegation black hole.
Here at PlayersBest our tipsters are football experts. Due to this we always provide the best Premier League betting tips the UK has to offer. Here is how we think Sunday’s game will go.
Prior to his first game in charge against Wolves, Tuchel had time for just one training session with the players. This means we should not read too much into the performance. However, it was impossible not to notice Chelsea’s lack of penetration. With Wolves sitting deep, the Blues registered 79% possession and almost 900 passes. Despite this, they created few chances. Burnley are likely to also use a low block on Sunday and to ensure a different outcome, Tuchel needs to get his compatriots, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, back firing on all cylinders.
Burnley are one of the most determined, defensive units in the Milky Way. Despite this, their record against the Premier League ‘Big Six’ has not been that impressive, until recently. Last Thursday they secured a huge 1-0 at Anfield, ending Liverpool’s incredible home league record in the process. They followed this up with two further wins, beating Fulham in the FA Cup before edging out Aston Villa in a five goal thriller. This run of form represents one of their best in recent memory. Chelsea should not underestimate how tough their task is going to be.
The previous results of this fixture provide insight into the power shifts of British football over the past century. The two sides first met in 1905 with the early encounters being dominated by Burnley. However, in more recent times, Chelsea have enjoyed a clear advantage, losing just one of the previous 13 encounters. Since 1983, the Clarets have won two meetings in total, a statistic that does not bode well for them on Sunday. Last time they played at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea breezed to a 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Jorginho, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
If you want to become the best football tipster in the galaxy, it is imperative to research the statistics before making your selections. Our expert team does this before every game and Sunday’s match is no different. Here are three highlights.
For this week’s Premier League bettings tips we are backing a Chelsea win and a Werner goal at any time.
Despite Burnley’s recent run of form, we cannot look past Chelsea for this one. Their record against the Clarets in recent years is strong, while Dyche’s side have struggled against elite sides more generally.
The patented ‘new manager bounce’ also increases the Blues’ chances of securing a result. A Chelsea win is not the only thing we will be including on our betting slip though.
In addition, we will also be placing a bet on Werner to score. Although it did not work out for the German sharpshooter under Lampard, he will be keen to impress his new head coach on Sunday. Tuchel’s tactical acumen also suggests he is the man to get the best out of Werner.
Those looking to back our tip should head over to Unibet. They are offering a Chelsea win and a Werner strike at 31/20.
