The Clarets have taken just one point from a possible 12 in top flight encounters between the sides at this ground, last coming out on top in a second tier match back in 1983.
Having won just once in seven home games this season, they are 39/4 (10.75) outsiders with SportPesa to end their wait by coming out on top here.
Maurizio Sarri has equalled the longest Premier League unbeaten streak for a new manager at Stamford Bridge with nine matches without defeat, and is priced at 20/57 (1.35) to make it a record 10 in a row with a victory.
Three of the guests’ last four league games have resulted in a draw, and you can get odds of 15/4 (5.75) on them being forced to settle for a single point yet again in this one.
Stephen Ward, Robbie Brady, and Nick Pope remain long term absentees, although Ben Gibson is back in contention following his lay-off with a hernia.
Fragile Burnley backline
For a team that has built its success on a solid defensive foundation since returning to the Premier League, Sean Dyche’s side has looked alarmingly fragile at the back at times this campaign.
Averaging over two goals a game under Sarri, odds of 21/20 (2.05) appear generous on Chelsea coming out on top and over 2.5 goals being scored against a Burnley side that lost 5-0 to Manchester City just last weekend.
