Preview: Burnley vs Chelsea

The favorites of the Premier League title are set to get their campaign underway against the newboys; Burnley who last graced the Premier League in 2009. The hosts under then manager Owen Coyle grabbed two notable scalps; those of Manchester United. In this campaign I expect a few decent results but they will go down. Their inability to considerably strengthen leaves them in trying to hussle for 40 points.

Sean Dyche has to debut against the Special One. No better test of your ability. Burnley have a proven goal scorer in Ings but will they break Jose's defense? Usually organized and efficient. This will be an exciting game.

Chelsea line up (predicted) : Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis, Fabregas,  Matic, Ramires, Willian, Hazard,  Costa

Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Mee, Arfield, Marney, Taylor, Jones,  Kightly, Ings

Chelsea had a productive pre season with a worrying result against Werder Bremen. Not much of a reflection of Chelsea's preparations. Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa really impressed. However pre season form counts for nothing in the crunch time.
Burnley's biggest worry will be goals. They struggled for those against a Blackpool side full of trialists! How will Ings fare with this load?
