Prematch Review : Chelsea vs Burnley


Chelsea will face Burnley on Saturday in an away match to make the grip firm on table. Chelsea being played 22 matches is at the top of the table with 51 points. Chelsea has a golden opertunity on Saturday to increase the point difference with Manchester United and Arsenal.

Chelsea has been under excellent form this season under the new manager Ancelotti. The Blues have shown alot of character and has been in fantastic form last two matches defeating Sunderland 7-2 and Birmingham City 3-0 . And the return of their star striker Drogba after the African nations cup will give definitely a boost.
Burnley have failed to win in the league since October but their home form does remain their saving grace - at Turf Moor they have only lost once and leaked just nine goals, a defensive record that is only marginally worse than Chelsea’s (lost none and conceded eight) at Stamford Bridge.
It’s been over two decades since Chelsea last made a league trip to Turf Moor; back in the old Second Division in 1983, they came away with a 2-1 win. The Clarets will be hoping they can pull off something of a shock against the in-form Blues this time around as they attempt to stave off the looming threat of relegation under new boss Brian Laws.

Key Players ::

* Drogba :
The super striker has came back after the African Nations. He can be a real danger when he is in mood.

* Lampard :
Rated as the best attacking midfielder in the world , the English international is in real good form recently. He netted the ball twice against Birmingham at Stamford bridge.Burnley will have to sweat alot to keep knuckles on him.
