Following yesterday's results Chelsea have the chance to go 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League table if they can secure maximum points against Burnley this afternoon. The Blues continue to be the most dominant and most consistent side in the top flight this term, winning 19 of their 24 league games this season under new boss Antonio Conte. They also remain unbeaten against sides outside of the top five, winning 16 of their 17 clashes, while keeping 13 clean sheets in the process. Burnley head into the match sitting 13th in the league table, though are not in any immediate danger of facing the drop this term. The Clarets have suffered league defeats in eight of their last 13 outings, conceding 1.5 goals per game. They have earned 97% of their points at Turf Moor this season, however nine of their 13 matches on home soil have come against bottom half sides. In fact 22 of the 29 points secured by Burnley this season have come against teams in the lower half of the table, while they have slumped to nine defeats from 12 against clubs in the top half. Burnley's home form will therefore be properly tested against the force of Chelsea this afternoon.
The battle for the second Champions League place continues over in Switzerland as second-placed Young Boys travel to face Luzern who sit just a single place below them in the standings. 100% of Luzern's league matches this season have all incredibly produced at least three match goals, producing a league high average of 4.1 goals per game as a result. It's been almost a year since the swissporarena has witnessed a Super League game with less than three goals, a run of 16 games, with a total of 63 goals scored since. 15 of Young Boys' 19 league matches this season have also seen at least three match goals, averaging 3.7 goals per game, the fourth highest in the division. More recently their last eight league games have produced a total of 36 goals, an average of 4.5 goals per game. Nine of the last 12 meetings between the clubs have also produced three or more goals, including the last five. With much needed points on offer, this looks to be an enthralling encounter between the two highest scoring teams in the Swiss Super League, excluding leaders Basel.
