Chelsea Vs Burnley Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush brings you the Dream11 prediction tips between Chelsea and Burnley.
Chelsea will have a fantastic chance to leapfrog their rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to third place when they play Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. The Blues, who are positioned fifth in the league table saw their top four rivals slip up in the weekend after suffering defeats to Manchester City and Crystal Palace respectively. Besides, Manchester United suffered a massive 4-0 defeat in the hands of Everton on Sunday.
It was a bizarre turn of events this weekend and Maurizio Sarri will hope to add points to their tally to put themselves in a fantastic position to finish in the top four. On the other hand, Burnley, who have bound to stay up in the Premier League will try to take the game to opponents half and do the damage.
As these two sides go head-to-head, we shall look at the dream11 picks.
Dream11 team for Chelsea Vs Burnley
Kepa Arrizabalaga: Kepa Arrizabalaga has had a decent start to his Premier League campaign after moving for a world record fee last summer. The Spanish International has kept 22 clean sheets in all competitions this campaign, thereby making himself as one of the top keepers in the league.
David Luiz: Since Antonio Rudiger is expected to be absent due to a knee injury, David Luiz will take charge of the backline by anchoring them. The Brazilian International possesses severe threat from the set pieces and has the capability to pick out passes from the back as well.
James Tarkowski: James Tarkowski is the heartbeat of Burnley’s defence. He was tipped to leave the Clarets last summer, but Sean Dyche was able to keep him despite interest from several sides. The English International has scored three goals this campaign and will look to carry his prowess into this game.
Emerson Palmieri: Due to Marcos Alonso’s poor form, Emerson Palmieri was slotted into the starting lineup. The Chelsea defender has done enough to warrant a place in the starting lineup by providing defensive astuteness which his teammate lacked. He does not bomb forward to link up with the attackers, but he is instrumental in shutting down the opponent’s defence.
Charlie Taylor: Charlie Taylor has been one of the standout players this season. The left-back has made himself available for 34 games this season and has an assist to his name. Since Burnley sit back with the defence, he rarely gets an opportunity to make forward runs.
Jorginho: Chelsea midfielder Jorginho likes to sit back with the defence and dictate the tempo of the game. The Italian International wins plenty of duels in the middle of the park and can pick out passes to break the opponent’s defence. If Hazard is not on the pitch, Jorginho is the assigned penalty taker.
Ruben Loftus Cheek: Following the form slump of Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley, Maurizio Sarri has called Ruben Loftus Cheek into the starting lineup. The English International has done well in the games he has played and has the capability to pick out passes and score long rangers.
Ashley Westwood: Ashley Westwood is one of the pick out players for Burnley this season. He brings so much energy to the team with relentless running and does well in the final third too. He has two goals and seven assists to his name this season.
Eden Hazard (C): Eden Hazard is the only player in the Premier League to have goals and assists in double digits this season. The Belgian International has scored 16 and has 12 assists to his name, thereby making the first name on the team sheet. If he does not have a good day in the attacking areas, Chelsea will suffer to create chances.
Chris Wood (VC): Burnley’s man-in-form Chris Wood has been in fine fettle in recent weeks. The Burnley forward has scored ten goals throughout the campaign and has the chance to increase his tally against the Blues. He is a tremendous header of the ball and will dominate David Luiz and Andreas Christensen if the service is top-notch.
Ashley Barnes: Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes have formed a devastating partnership up front. Barnes has scored ten times this season and possesses the same characteristics as his fellow teammate. Chelsea will struggle to deal with the Burnley attackers as they are dependent on long balls for supply.
