‘They’ve been enjoying themselves’: Harry Redknapp predicts Burnley v Chelsea FC

Harry Redknapp is fully expecting to see Chelsea FC continue their recent good form by claiming a victory at Burnley on Saturday evening in the Premier League.

The Blues head into the game looking to keep up their recent good run of results, with Frank Lampard’s men currently in fourth place in the Premier League table.

Chelsea FC were impressive 1-0 winners at Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday night as Michy Batshuayi came off the bench to score a late winner for Lampard’s side.

The west London side are currently fourth in the table and they head to Turf Moor looking to make it four wins on the spin in the Premier League.

Burnley are currently eighth and just five points behind Chelsea FC heading into this weekend’s round of fixtures.

However, former Tottenham manager Redknapp is backing the Blues to continue their good form and claim all three points against the Clarets on Saturday night.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Redknapp said: “Chelsea have been enjoying themselves of late and other than a disastrous 4-0 mauling at Old Trafford on opening day have been impressive since.

“A narrow 1-0 win over Newcastle last weekend moved them into the top four and if Frank Lampard is able to finish the season in that position he will be hailed a hero.

“A trip to Lancashire is next on the agenda but after scoring an amazing twelve goals in their last three Premier League away games Turf Moor should hold no fears.

“In fairness, the Clarets have been competitive this term and with three home victories from four will be hoping to maintain that strong record.

“Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes have been the form men up front, but it’s difficult to envisage them having the edge against the men from Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea will rely on their flair to exploit any weakness and should ensure another happy away day for their travelling fans to celebrate.”

Chelsea FC are aiming to maintain their place in the top four after having finished third under Maurizio Sarri last term.

They will return to League Cup action on Wednesday night when they host Manchester United in the fourth round at Stamford Bridge.
