This Sunday we face Burnley in a tricky tie. If you look at the outcome of the reverse fixture, then you’d think it’s going to be an easy win for Chelsea, but then, if there’s one thing certain about football, it’s that anything is possible.
We won Burnley 3-0 the last time out, at a time when they were upsetting other top four teams, and while that is a good omen for us going into this fixture, it’s also a pointer to the fact that they’re capable of winning anyone. Sean Dyche looks like he’s bent on avoiding back to back relegation, and his boys know that well too. We have to go into this fixture treating them with the same respect as Liverpool or Man City. Otherwise, we may end up suffering a bad loss. Remember that teams never like to be beaten twice by the same opposition; we saw how Tottenham turned the heat at White Hart Lane. We have to be focused and set to take whatever Burnley will throw at us.
Dyche’s men look pretty confident heading into the game, and you can only look at their home record to see why they feel so confident playing at the Turf Moor. But surely, if we can be at our best, it’ll end in victory.
At this stage of the season, every win counts. If we get all 3 on Sunday, it’s another step closer to the title.
