Chelsea’s new manager Thomas Tuchel didn’t win his debut game in the Premier League,
but now he has the chance to try again. On Sunday the Blues will host Burnley in a match
from the 21th round of the competition. Let’s preview it in these football prediction betting
tips today.
Tuchel’s debut with Chelsea didn’t go entirely according to plan, but he had a tough
opponent as well. The Blues hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Stamford Bridge,
but the game ended with no goals scored – 0-0. With this point Chelsea remained 8th in
the standings with 30 points won. The Londoners are five points behind the 4th West Ham,
so they need to make a push now.
Thomas Tuchel took a surprising decision against Wolves during the week. He chose to
leave Timo Werner on the bench for the entire game. Olivier Giroud started in attack while
Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic entered the pitch as substitutions.
Chelsea won just one of their last five matches in the league. This explains why the
previous manager Frank Lampard got sacked. The Blues need to better their performance
in order to reach the Top 4.
Burnley are approaching this visit to London from 15th place in the standings. Burnley are
showing signs of improvement lately as they won their last two matches against Liverpool
and Aston Villa. With these 6 points Sean Dyche’s team successfully climbed to 15th place
in the standings. Now they have 22 points in total.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League fixture between
Chelsea and Burnley on Sunday. Many people expect to see Tuchel’s first win with the
club, but Burnley are not a side which just lay over and wait to be defeated. With their win
against Liverpool at the Anfield they showed how dangerous they can be.
