Maurizio Sarri’s side have lost just one Premier League home game so far this season (Leicester in December), and have kept eight clean sheets in our past 11 at Stamford Bridge, conceding three goals in total during this period.

No side has conceded fewer home league goals than the Blues (10, equal with Liverpool).

Maurizio Sarri’s side have won 66 points in the Premier League this season, three more than we had after 34 games of last season.

Thirty-three per cent of Chelsea’s goals in the Premier League this season have been scored in the final 15 minutes (19 out of 57).

I expect to see us win this as we're a much better side at home, while Burnley haven't been all that flash away for much of the season. That said, they're a physical side and that may pose a problem if we try to be too cute. 

With Man Utd away next, Watford at home and then Leicester away on the final day, anything less than a win in this one and we're probably going to struggle to finish top 4.

Yes agree on the need for a win, physical sides have caused us problems in the last two seasons yet our home form is better. Let's hope Sarri and the chaps apply themselves correctly for this one.

After this match we have our only decent break before the season ends, 6 days until Utd.

I think it's more clear cut than that; anything less than a win and top 4 is over. 

We can put ourselves in a hugely advantageous tactical position if we go to Old Trafford with the home team needing to win more desperately than us.

With Spurs losing we must capitalise on it and get three points .

Giroud must start this game .
