Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Wolverhampton, Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Burnley at their Stamford Bridge on Matchday 21. The Blues are on a three-game winless run at home in the Premier League, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to get back on course on Sunday afternoon. New boss Thomas Tuchel is eager to record his first Premier League win, and we are positive that the capital club will go all guns blazing at the Clarets.
N’Golo Kante is facing race against clock to be fit for the match. Burnley, on the other hand, have been in a splendid for of late. Following a historical 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield, the Clarets outplayed Aston Villa at home on Wednesday evening to escape the relegation zone. However, Chelsea want this win more than Burnley, and we are tempted to put our money on Thomas Tuchel’s men. Defender Charlie Taylor is rated doubtful for Sunday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
