Its Burnley v Chelsea LIVE from the Premier League with the latest odds, team news and live streaming information from Turf Moor (KO 20:00).
After wins for Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City on the weekend, the stage is set for Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea side to also make a good start to the new Premiership season as they face Sean Dyche and his Burnley side at Turf Moor.
Its been another season of progress for Chelsea with two new additions set to make a major impact this time around. Ex Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas has come in from Barcelona and there’s no doubt the Spaniard is capable of making an immediate impression in what looks a formidable midfield unit.
Diego Costa has arrived during the summer to attempt to rectify Chelsea’s underlying goalscoring problem, and with Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o both failing to shine in front of goal, its now up to the former Atletico Madrid man to deliver the goods.
Of course, he is more than capable of firing Chelsea to victory tonight, if he can recapture his sparkling form from La Liga.
With John Terry and Gary Cahill still rock solid at the back the Blues are expected to go close this time around and should pick up three points tonight.
At 2/5 for the away win there’s little value to be and, but instead a tight victory could be on the cards, which brings our attention to the correct score betting. Chelsea were rock solid on the road last season, conceding only 16 goals in 19 away trips and thats the market that we’re targeting tonight.
The 1-0 and 2-0 correct score betting provides much more value for punters at 11/2 and 5/1 apiece, and add in the fact that Jose Mourinho has won all 5 of the opening season games as Chelsea manager, all the signs point to the away win.
Alternatively, punters may wish to look at the handicap markets with the Blues available at evens with the single goal handicap.
With so much firepower on display, and the addition of Costa and Fabregas, we can see a side eager to put in a good shift for the manager and the stats and recent form all point to the away win.
Just pick up that extra value with Paddy Power.
