Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has predicted that Chelsea will suffer a loss when they take on Burnley away this weekend.

The Blues endured a mixed start to the season under new boss Frank Lampard but have gotten on track as of late, registering six consecutive wins in all competitions. However, Nicholas believes that run could come to an end when they face Burnley this Sunday.

“Chelsea have been more consistent than I thought what with the shift of Frank Lampard coming in and everything that came with it,” he wrote in his daily column.

“In essence, it was clear-cut with the transfer situation. If Tammy Abraham scores he stays in the team and for me, Mason Mount is good enough to stay in the side. Callum Hudson-Odoi has signed a new contract and so will feature, Willian is back in good form and Jorginho has been great. Fikayo Tomori is also playing well, but I am not sure whether the Chelsea centre-backs have a partnership to cope with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood when they get the service that they do.”

“If there is an upset of the weekend then I am looking at this match. The Burnley style may not be attractive to some people but it is so effective.”
