Chelsea’s next game is against Sean Dyche’s Burnley, with the Blues host playing host to the Clarets.

Burnley are in massive form heading to this game, having won their last three games in all competitions, beating Aston Villa, Fulham and Liverpool.

Mark Lawrenson is wary of the threat of Burnley, but has predicted a 2-1 win for the Blues.

The BBC Sport pundit said in his prediction: “I wonder if new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has come up against a team who play quite like Burnley before? I doubt it.

“The Clarets are doing well and will be full of confidence after beating Liverpool and Aston Villa in their past two league games, to give themselves a bit of breathing space above the bottom three.

“By the way things looked during Wednesday’s draw with Wolves, Tuchel has made improving the Blues’ defence his priority. If they can get that right again here, I think he can get his first win under his belt.”
