After a fifth failed attempt to record a win in the Premier League, Burnley will be looking to try their sixth attempt this weekend. The side will play host to Chelsea at the Turf Moor this Saturday. The match kickoffs at 6 pm.
The Blues head into the match without much to boast domestically. Frank Lampard will cherish their 4-0 thrashing of side FC Krasnodar in the Champions League on Wednesday. It remains a tough start for Sean Dyche.
Latest news currently rocking Burnley’s camp is the news of a new takeover. The club remains on the verge of being taken over in a deal worth around €200M by Egyptian businessman Mohamed El Kashashy.
The takeover is likely to breathe fresh air into the side who are currently having it tough in the Premier League. Sean Dyche forged a reputation of having a difficult defensive setup in the league to break. The Clarets have conceded nine goals in the league this season. The side has only one point to show from four losses and a draw.
The full attacking threat feared by many came into full effect on Wednesday night in the Champions League. Hakim Ziyech marked his first debut for the Blues with a goal. Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hudson Oddoi followed with a goal each. Eduoard Mendy made his fourth clean sheet for the Blues equaling Peter Cech’s record.
