Match preview

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri believes it will be tough for all teams involved in the race for the top four to pick up wins in the remainder of the season.

He said: “The last four or five matches will be difficult for every team involved in fighting for the top four, not only for us.

“So we can see some very strange results in the last part of the season. We are going to fight and see at the end.”

Burnley manager Sean Dyche insists his side have always been focused on themselves as they have all but ensure Premier League survival.

He explained: “Ideally, we want to take care of ourselves. That’s what we’ve done historically. That’s our mindset.

“It’s not done until it’s done, but we are on a good run of three wins, very important wins, and good performances that have backed those up.”
