    TWINNING

    You have to roll the years back to the 80’s when Burnley last recorded a victory over Chelsea at Turf Moor. It was a 3-0 win in the old Second Division.

    However, check this out for a crazy stat.

    In the 1957/58 season, the Blues thumped Burnley 6-1 which is their highest ever win against the Clarets.

    But if you go even further back to the 1913/14 season, Burnley wiped the floor with Chelsea to pick up their biggest win against the Blues.

    Guess what the final score was?

    You guessed it… 6-1.

    DYCHE PRESS CONFERENCE

    The Burnley boss on the potential £200m takeover.

    It’s not really my domain, I focus on the team and obviously it needs focusing on at the minute. We’ve had a tough start, couple of good performances but a tough start none the less, so yeah I’ll focus on that. The chairman and the board will make the big decisions of the club, I have no power on that side of things.”

    He then touched on injuries and how it has affected their season so far.

    “Well I think that early part was quite obvious, the challenge of injuries was more than we’d ever had or carrying on actually. Coming out of lockdown, we had a similar situation which we were obviously disappointed with and surprised at.”

    “Performances were ok but not good enough and then the last two I think we performed very well actually.”

    “Bardo’s still got to recover from the Covid situation, only for testing. He’s recovered but the testing has still got to be cleared.”

    “Yohan has got a niggly calf so he’s touch and go.”

    “Erik Pieters won’t make it.”

    “Ben had a little run out in the week which was good. We’re trying to get him another game ASAP and he’s training with us all the time now, the first team too so that’s good news.”

    “Cork is a bit behind them and is making steady progress.”

    KASH TO BURN

    According to Sky Sports, Egyptian businessman Mohamed El Kashashy is on the verge of completing a whopping £200m takeover of Burnley.

    Discussions have been ongoing for the last 12 months but all that is left to get this deal over the line is confirmation from the Premier League. This could be huge for the Clarets.

    Reports suggest that the Dubai citizen who has already has his hands in the Food and Leisure industry is optimistic with how Burnley boss Sean Dyche is running the club and is prepared to back him with major investments which will help to propel the squad.

    We have seen what previous takeovers have done for the likes of Manchester City and their latest opponents Chelsea, so this could definitely be a step in the right direction for the Clarets.

    FABREGASTED

    Take a look at this exquisite assist from Cesc Fabregas as he put it on a plate for Schuerrle.

    LAST TIME OUT

    The blues continued their prolific statistic of netting at least twice in each victory against Burnley when goals from Jorginho, Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi enabled them to run out 3-0 winners at Stamford Bridge in January.

    The Clarets had a good defensive wall up which Chelsea initially struggled to break down, until a 25th minute blunder from Matt Lowton when he took out former Blues attacker Willian in a terrible slide tackle resulting in a penalty. Jorginho stepped up (literally) and made no mistake.

    11 minutes later and it was 2-0. A header from close range put Tammy Abraham on the scoresheet which in all honesty, Burnley keeper Nick Pope should done much better with.

    The away side did come close, when a Ben Mee header was cleared off the line but shortly after the break, a 6-yard-out toe poke from Callum Hudson-Odoi determined Burnley’s fate.

    Frank Lampard described his team as “superb” that day and believed that they could have scored more if other chances were taken.

    LEAGUE TABLE

    The standings going into the weekend. 3 points would be huge for both teams today!

    GOOD AFTERNOON

    Hello my beautiful Sun Sport family. Hope you are all keeping warm, staying safe and following the Government’s guidelines!

    Today’s box office event takes us to Lancashire where Burnley will be hosting Chelsea at the mighty Turf Moor stadium.

    As we enter match-day 7 in the Premier League, both teams will probably feel a bit disappointed with their start so far. Burnley’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Spurs last game was already their fourth loss of the season, shipping 9 goals in that time and only managing to score just the 1 in open play (the lowest in the PL) they are currently sitting in 18th place. Not good at all.

    Frank Lampard’s men have only managed to pick up 9 points out of a possible 18 which currently puts them at 10th in the league. This is below par considering their busy transfer window.

    However, the Blues did salvage a very good point in their last league encounter away at Old Trafford and they are coming into this game off the back of an emphatic 4-0 victory in the Champions League which should give them a huge boost.

    One interesting thing about this game is that out of the previous 12 Premier League meetings between the 2 clubs, it has never been goalless at half-time. So let’s expect some goals today.

    I hope I haven’t jinxed it…
