Chelsea are currently 4th in the league and four points ahead of 5th placed Sheffield United. However, the Blues would have been in a more comfortable position if not for Chelsea’s poor home form.

Chelsea have lost their last two home league games to Southampton and Everton, and the Blues have lost three of their last four home league matches.

Chelsea have found it difficult to break down opponents at Stamford Bridge, and Frank Lampard has admitted that all his side needs to do is to put the ball into the net, something that they have been working on in training.

The Chelsea boss said ahead of the home clash against Burnley: “When you analyse the three games that we’ve lost – West Ham, Bournemouth, Southampton – it always gives you a bad feeling losing at home in front of your fans. We’ve created 50 chances in three games and scored no goals so if that is the case and you’re playing in the Premier League and you let teams stay in the game then they will have quality to hurt you.

“We need to take our chances in home games and I need to be pretty firm about that because it’s easy to say we’re unlucky or the ball hasn’t dropped for us but we have to get that right.

“We work on that in training but there’s an element of it that is instinct and we need to find that killer instinct in front of goal because in terms of play, we’re controlling big parts of games but we’re allowing teams to stay in them. We get into the final third a lot, as much as any team in the country barring Liverpool, but we’re not converting chances at home.”
