Chelsea have won six straight games on the bounce, and the Blues will be aiming for a seventh away at Burnley this weekend.

Chelsea’s next clash is against a difficult Burnley side and Sean Dyche will surely have his brutal side ready for Frank Lampard’s buzzing squad.

A trip to Turf Moor is never easy and Burnley are doing well at the moment and have won their last two home games and are currently 8th in the league.

Clarets’ captain Ben Mee has revealed his expectations ahead of the clash and insists that he’s expecting a tough game against the Blues but believes his side can get a good result.

“You can talk about transitional periods, but there is some good quality in there mixed with some good young quality, as well, and enthusiasm,” the 30-year-old told the club’s official website about the quality of Chelsea.

“I think there’s a good balance at Chelsea and they are on a bit of a run. It’s going to be a tough game, as always, against a top side with some top-quality players.

“But we will go into it full of confidence and belief that we can beat that side. We don’t want them to be free hits. We want to go in there and compete and do well. We feel, especially at home, against these teams we can do that and pick up points.

“We’ve started the season well and it’s something to build on. Hopefully like last year we can get stronger and stronger and be in a really positive position. We’re really positive with the way we are going about playing games at the moment.”
