A third straight Chelsea home fixture brings Burnley from the North-West of England to the south-west of London, and Thomas Tuchel’s second game in charge is our first in the league kicking off in daylight since November. This is the second trip to west London in eight days for the Lancastrians. While Chelsea were seeing off Luton in the FA Cup, the Clarets were at the Cottage eliminating Fulham, and they have also won three of their past four league games in the capital.
The Blues, though, are aiming for a fourth successive victory against Burnley, and are unbeaten in six against the visitors. The game could provide a stark clash of styles: on Wednesday Tuchel’s side registered the highest possession and accurate passes ever recorded by a Chelsea team in the Premier League, while so far this season the Clarets have managed the fewest completions and third-lowest control of the ball.
Tuchel has already said how much he welcomes the return of fit-again N’Golo Kante, a player he has admired for years. He sees the World Cup winner as a ‘double six’ – one of two central midfielders. Meanwhile, Edou Mendy’s eighth clean sheet means only City’s Ederson has managed a higher rate per match this season.
