Burnley’s top-flight return sees them entertain many pundits’ title fancies Chelsea. Inevitably, the Blues are red-hot favourites at 2/5 via Stan James to acquire a maximum haul at Turf Moor, where the hosts are 17/2 chance at BetVictor to stun Jose Mourinho’s team.
In high spirits following their unlikely promotion, the Clarets are more than capable of giving a good account of themselves in front of a vociferous home crowd but getting on the scoresheet might prove difficult and accordingly the West London outfit catch the eye at 13/10 (betway) to triumph ‘to nil’.
In attack for Mourinho’s side, big-money signing Diego Costa is fancied to make an instant impact, Coral installing him as their 4/1 first scorer jolly.
However, it could take the craft of someone like Eden Hazard to break down Sean Dyche’s dogged troops and the Belgian schemer is taken at 6/1 via BetVictor to break the deadlock.
