Chelsea vs Burnley: Check out the Blues' Last 5 EPL Home Meetings With Burnley And How They Performed

With 25 points from a possible 30, Chelsea are making a strong statement to challenge for the Premier league title this season as they currently sit on top of the log. Up next for the Blues is a clash with Burnley at Stamford Bridge this Saturday which is scheduled to kick-off by 16:00 West Africa Standard time. Ahead of the weekend encounter, check out how Chelsea performed in their last five Premier league home meetings with the Clarets;

1- Chelsea 2 vs 0 Burnley (31 January 2020)

In what was Thomas Tuchel's first game in charge of the Blues, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso found the back of the net to hand their new German coach his first win.

2- Chelsea 3 vs 0 Burnley (11 January 2020)

Three goals in the space of 22 minutes was the difference as Chelsea cruised to a comfortable victory against the Clarets.

3- Chelsea 2 vs 2 Burnley (22 April 2019)

4- Chelsea 2 vs 3 Burnley (12 August 2017)

The home side were stunned by the visitors who capitalized on their two man disadvantage to secure a 3-2 win. Chelsea players Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas got sent off in this game.

5- Chelsea 3 vs 0 Burnley (27 August 2016)

In what proved to be a title winning season for the Blues, Chelsea made it three wins from three with a dominant 3-0 defeat of Burnley at Stamford Bridge thanks to strikes from Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses.

With three wins, a draw and a defeat in their last five Premier league home meetings with Burnley, Chelsea will be looking to out top once again when both teams meet this weekend for the 15th time in the top flight. However, seeing that the Clarets are currently in the relegation zone, Thomas Tuchel shouldn't in anyway underestimate them
