Chelsea hosts Burnley in round 22 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, January 11th at Stamford Bridge (London)
Chelsea shared points with Brighton in the last match, and this result of the Blues can be called positive. It is very difficult to play against the Seagulls, especially on their pitch, but Lampard's men quite successfully restrained the onslaught of the opponent. Kepa played great; in general, Chelsea’s defense performed its functions. Yes, the Pensioners conceded, but who expected the Iranian to deliver such a shot? Therefore, I may safely give four to the defense of Londoners on a 5-point scale. And do not forget that before the match with Brighton, Lampard's men also played reliably with Arsenal.

The Clarets significantly slowed down in recent matches. After enchanting victories over Watford and West Ham, they managed to score only four goals in eight matches. And this is the worst scoring fixture in the Premier League for this period. Burnley's had problems both in conversion and creation. The team creates few attempts, and if it manages to shoot from a vantage point, the ball flies off the mark or the shot does not come out strong. At the same time, the Clarets cannot benefit during set pieces. Therefore, I cannot imagine how Burnley will earn points at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are favorites, and they may even keep a clean sheet. But I do not expect that they will manage to score an abundance of goals. Young players cannot stand such a schedule and get tired. And we see the decline in the performance of the same Abraham. Besides, Mount has significantly slowed down recently. As a result, Lampard's team scored only five goals in the last five matches in the Premier League. In the match with Brighton, the Blues created a few attempts, and they scored only at the end of the game with Arsenal. Burnley is capable of not failing in a match with such Chelsea. Actually, the Clarets conceded only five goals in the last five matches. And taking into account the above arguments, I will bet on 1X + Under 3.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea to win with +0.5 handicap and Under 3.5 goals scored
