Chelsea’s next game is a tricky away clash against Burnley at the Turf Moor on Thursday night.

The Blues were poor against Southampton on Saturday but bounced back from 2-0 down to win the game 3-2, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Antonio Conte’s men will struggle away from home to the in-form Burnley side.

He told Sky Sports: “I think Burnley are ridiculous odds to beat Chelsea here. With the FA Cup semi-final coming up, it’s a great bet.

“We saw on Saturday Chelsea didn’t even want to be there in the first 70 minutes against Southampton, it was only when Olivier Giroud came on did they look energetic and urgent. He wanted to prove something.

“You can’t go 2-0 down at Burnley, they’re a completely different side to Southampton. Burnley have been outstanding.”

Chelsea lost the reverse fixture 3-0 at Stamford Bridge and will be hoping for revenge.
