# Key players of the Blues: Team Chelsea is currently led by English defender John Terry. Their current boss Conte has worried about their current structure and also trying to recruit some new players this summer. However, Diego Costa and Michy Batshuayi are top two attackers of this team and scored regularly since the beginning of this season. Loic Remy is the another striker but he is about to leave the Stamford Bridge this summer. Frenchman N’Golo Kante is one of the newest addition of coach Conte.
# Key Players of the Clarets: The apprentices of Sean Dyche were once the regular contender of Premier League but unfortunately last season they fall behind to the Championship league but this season they are promoted to the EPL by becoming top of Championship. They have also some good players and their stopper Tom is their current captain. They have taken Jon Flanagan from Liverpool on loan this summer who would strengthen their defence. Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes are the two top players of the club would also be their main weapon.
# Prediction: Considering the above listed statistics along with head to head performances, the Clarets won more than the Blues by fighting against each other. But, Chelsea is always one of the top club in EPL which would be counted by Burnley.
