Burnley face a baptism of fire on their return to the Premier League when they entertain Chelsea on Monday in their first game of the season.

Date: August 18, 2014
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley
Kick-off time: 8.00 pm BST

Probable starting eleven:

Burnley:
Heaton; Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Mee; Kightley, Marney, Taylor, Jones; Ings, Jutkiewicz.

Chelsea:
Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis , Matic; Hazard, willian, Fabregas, Oscar; Costa.

Newly promoted Burnley are back in Premier league after four years. They have played six friendly matches during the preparation period. Burnley won over Grossklein (8:0) and Accrington (1:0), while lost to Preston (2:1). In the last two weeks Burnley won over Blackpool and Verona, while played draw with Celta Vigo, so we can say they have a solid preparation period. Here are the last results:

09.08.2014. Burnley - Verona 3:1

05.08.2014. Burnley - Celta Vigo 2:2

02.08.2014. Blackpool - Burnley 0:1


The striker Sam Vokes will miss the match due to a knee injury, while the defender Cameron Dummigan is sidelined with a thigh problem. The newcomers, strikers Lukas Jutkiewicz and Marvin Sordell, the midfielders Michael Kightly and Matt Taylor, as so the defender Steven Reid will hope to make their debuts on this match.

Chelsea played a lot of friendlies during summer period. They lost two from 10 played matches. The Blues have played five matches in August and won three of them. They have not conceded more than one goal per match with the exception of the match against Werder Bremen which they heavily lost. Here are the results:

12.08.2014. Chelsea - Real Sociedad 2:0

10.08.2014. Ferencvaros - Chelsea 1:2

08.08.2014. Besiktas - Chelsea 1:0

08.08.2014. Fenerbahce - Chelsea 0:2

03.08.2014. Werder Bremen - Chelsea 3:0


The midfielder Ramires is suspended, while the striker Didier Drogba is doubtful due to an ankle problem. The manager Jose Mourinho still keep in secret which goalkeeper, Courtois or Cech, will start for Chelsea. However, that's a "sweet problem" for him. The summer signings Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid €40M), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid €20M) and Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona €33M) are expected to be in the starting eleven.

Last meeting between Chelsea and Burnley were in the season 2009/10. The Blues won both fixtures. Here are the results:

30.01.2010. Burnley - Chelsea 1:2

29.08.2009. Chelsea - Burnley 3:0


Chelsea are unbeaten in their opening fixture since 1998, winning 13 of 15 games. I believe they will win again. Even more, I expect to secure the victory after the first half.

Chelsea will win by 3 goals

Pick: Chelsea/Chelsea (HT/FT
