Chelsea will lead the Premier League by at least three points over the international break if it can dispatch Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (start time 11am ET on Peacock Premium).

The Blues’ PL-best 25 points are three more than second-place Liverpool and Thomas Tuchel will feel good about newly-healthy Christian Pulisic’s record against the Clarets.

Prediction

There’s some danger in Chelsea’s depleted attacking corps being a bit weary, especially after a midweek match, and Burnley will be ready to make the Blues work for their points. Chelsea will find them, but it won’t be a cruise. Chelsea 2-0 Burnley.
