MATCH FACTS

Burnley have never won a Premier League encounter against Chelsea, losing four of five previous attempts (D1).
Chelsea have won their last three top-flight trips to Turf Moor, last losing there in a top-flight encounter in August 1973 when they were beaten 1-0 by a Frank Casper goal.
The Clarets have only kept one clean sheet in their last 11 games against the Blues in all competitions, doing so in a 3-0 win in the second tier in April 1983.
Burnley have lost all four of their Premier League matches played on a Sunday this season, while Chelsea have won five and drawn one – the Blues haven’t lost a league game on a Sunday since August 2015 against Man City.
Diego Costa’s first Premier League goal came against Burnley in August 2014 – since then, only Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero (both 60) have scored more Premier League goals than he has (47).
The Blues have kept the most clean sheets in the Premier League this season (13), four more than they managed in the entirety of the 2015-16 season.
Only Spurs (32) and Chelsea (33) have more home Premier League points than Burnley (28) this season, while the Blues have the best away record with 26 points.
The record for the most home points collected by a newly promoted team in a 38-game Premier League season is 38, set by Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic in 2000-01.
Chelsea are 30 points better off after 24 Premier League games this season (59) than they were last season (29) and already have nine points more than they did at the end of last season (50).
Cesc Fabregas has created a goalscoring chance for a teammate on average every 22 minutes in the Premier League this season (24 in 526 minutes of game time).
The Clarets have won their last five home Premier League games – they haven’t won six consecutively in the top-flight since November 1961 (eight in a row).
