Burnley have been outstanding at home in the league this season. The Clarets have won 10 of their last 13 home league games, and have the third best home record in the league this season.

Chelsea will be away at Burnley on Sunday afternoon, and despite Burnley’s dominance at the Turf Moor, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson, believes Antonio Conte’s men will carry the day.

“When you talk about Burnley, you are talking about one of the best home records in the Premier League,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“That is some going as not many would have said that at the start of the season.

“Chelsea’s record against teams outside the top six is imperious though.

“Swansea are the only team outside those top clubs to get a point off Chelsea.

“Antonio Conte’s men have put the so-called lesser teams to the sword.

“For as much as I admire Burnley I cannot see past Chelsea, they will have too much for them.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
