Pat Nevin has warned Chelsea FC to be prepared for their toughest away game of the Premier League season at Burnley on Thursday night.

The west London outfit came from 2-0 down to secure a 3-2 win against 18th-placed Southampton in the Premier League table last weekend.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to halve the deficit before Eden Hazard levelled the scoreline at St Mary’s.

The France international completed the comeback with his second Premier League goal since his January move to Chelsea FC from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Chelsea FC will make the trip to seventh-placed Burnley in their next Premier League fixture at Turf Moor on Thursday night.

Sean Dyche’s side were 2-1 winners against Leicester City last weekend to move to within two points of Arsenal in the race to secure a Europa League spot.

Burnley can hoist themselves above the north London side if they are able to beat Chelsea FC in their mid-week fixture.

Former Chelsea FC winger Nevin isn’t underestimating the threat that Burnley will pose at Turf Moor.

“Burnley have been a tough nut to crack for everyone this season and I have nothing but admiration for their honest endeavour and their evermore positive outlook towards winning each game,” Nevin told Chelsea FC’s website.

“It does not seem to matter who they play against, they always have the same work ethic. I doubt if there will be a single Burnley player on the pitch on Thursday night whose mind is on anything other than giving everything they have in that particular game. So it will not be easy; in fact it could be among the toughest away games of the season.”

Chelsea FC lost 3-2 to Burnley in their opening Premier League game of the 2017-18 season at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the past three campaigns.
