Chelsea’s next game is a home game against Burnley, and while the Blues are 4th in the league, Burnley are 15th.

Chelsea’s home form has been terrible this season as the Blues have struggled in front of their home fans to break down opposition defences.

Former Gunner and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has predicted another difficult home game for Chelsea, but he has backed the Blues to win the game 2-0.

“It is another one of the awkward Chelsea home games where they find it hard to break them down,” the pundit told Sky Sports. “Most of the time, Burnley have been exactly that, but I do not see the resolve that was once there.

“I can see the frustration in Sean Dyche at the moment. He would like to change it at the back but is limited with choices. They have been good over the years but there is a lull at the moment.

“Chelsea have to prove something. They have had a little rest which might do them some good. Burnley are in a fight at the moment and with the way the table sits, they still have quite a bit of work to do.

“If the front pair don’t score, they won’t score from anywhere else. That seems to be missing in the Premier League and is why they are sitting four points above the drop zone. I don’t recall Burnley ever conceding so many goals.”
