Chelsea fans are not confident of their side’s chances of securing victory at Burnley in the English Premier League this evening according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.

The Blues go into the match with the opportunity to close the gap on fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur but a trip to Burnley is never easy for any side these days.

Ahead of the match, we asked Blues fans whether they think their side will beat The Clarets. Fans voted in their usual high numbers with just 55% opting for an away win. A total of 27% believe that Burnley will be victorious while the remaining 18% expect the match to be drawn.

In a second fan poll, we asked fans how many goals they think Antonio Conte’s men will score against Burnley. Two or three goals was the most favourable outcome with 64% of the votes while 18% think that just one goal will be scored. Four or more goals commanded 9% of the votes while the same percentage of voters expect a Burnley clean sheet.

Finally, after rescuing his side from defeat at Southampton on Saturday, we asked whether Olivier Giroud should start at Turf Moor. Fans backed the former Arsenal man with 91% opting for the player to be selected.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 7.45pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
