Tipsters over at bettingexpert, which has partnered up with CFCnet, are sharing their latest Burnley vs Chelsea tips for the huge Thursday night fixture, in what is sure to be an intriguing clash of two clubs seeking European qualification.

Olivier Giroud should start after scoring twice from the bench at Southampton, but Marcos Alonso could be banned for three games after being charged by the FA after an alleged stamp on Shane Long in that game.

Chelsea's current boss Antonio Conte enjoyed a superb first season in English football, winning the Premier League and reaching the FA Cup final.

Chelsea will certainly have to show more fight than they did in the 3-2 comeback win at Southampton, excluding the last 20 minutes.

The Blues are now fifth in the table, eight points behind fourth-placed rivals Tottenham with a game in hand as they chase a Champions League spot.

"We have a really important game against Burnley, a really strong team".

"Don't forget, in England you start to play in November before the global break and you play until March, every three days".

Elsewhere, David Luiz (knee), Ethan Ampadu (ankle) and Danny Drinkwater remain out for last year's Premier League champions.

Chelsea haven't lost both league meetings in a season against Burnley since the 1968-69 campaign.

"It ( Europa League qualification) can be a great achievement for Burnley".

Burnley haven't done the league double against the reigning top-flight champions since 1953-54, when they beat Arsenal home and away.

Chelsea have only lost one of their six Premier League games on a Thursday (W3 D2), with that defeat coming in their last such match (3-5 vs Tottenham, January 2015).

"I don't think he said anything wrong", Conte said.

Liverpool still have to visit Chelsea this season and are due to make the trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday 6th May.
