Burnley are having a good season and are currently 7th on the table, two points behind Arsenal in 6th.
Chelsea will be away at the Turf Moor on Thursday to play Sean Dyche’s men who have been impressive this season, and Blues legend Pat Nevin is expecting a very difficult game.
He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “If it is honesty you are seeking in football you look no further than Thursday evening and our opponents Burnley. They will throw everything at Chelsea considering they still have Arsenal in their sights. I was at the Gunners game Sunday and going by that performance it is a definite possibility that Sean Dyche’s team could embarrass Arsenal by overtaking them in the run in.”
Nevin continued: “Back to basics and Burnley have been a tough nut to crack for everyone this season and I have nothing but admiration for their honest endeavour and their evermore positive outlook towards winning each game. It does not seem to matter who they play against, they always have the same work ethic. I doubt if there will be a single Burnley player on the pitch on Thursday night whose mind is on anything other than giving everything they have in that particular game. So it will not be easy; in fact it could be among the toughest away games of the season.”
