EPL: Chelsea beat Burnley to keep alive top four hopes

London, April 20: Chelsea kept alive their hopes of qualifying for the next football season’s UEFA Champions League after beating hosts Burnley 2-1 in an English Premier League (EPL) match.

Victor Moses on Thursday scored the winner in the 69th minute as Chelsea moved to within five points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have 68 points from 34 games. Liverpool are third with 70 points, reports Xinhua news agency.

Antonio Conte’s team went ahead in the 20th minute as Moses burst down the right and his cross went in off Kevin Long for an own goal.

Burnley levelled the score in the 64th minute thanks to Ashley Barnes, who deflected in Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s shot.

Chelsea restored their lead in five minutes through Moses. Emerson Palmeri’s cross found the Nigerian wing-back at the far post and he fired in.

Burnley, who had their five-match winning streak snapped, remained at seventh, two points behind Arsenal and eight ahead of Leceister, who were held to a goalless draw by Southampton.

“Tonight I saw a great team spirit,” Chelsea coach Conte was quoted as saying by his club’s website. “It’s not simple to play against Burnley. If you give them a bit of space, they are ready to put these long balls in and be dangerous with the second ball.

“We forced them to play these long balls, but when they played them from their own half of the pitch, it’s less dangerous.

‘We showed great spirit. We didn’t show this spirit in the first half against Southampton. We were a disaster. But in the second half and today, we must be pleased. It’s a great pleasure to see my players with this commitment, desire and will to fight for the ball.”

Conte decided to start both strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata in tandem. Although neither scored in the 2-1 win – despite Morata having chances to do so, Conte was pleased with the pair’s effort.

“They did a great job. Giroud and Morata played a fantastic game and sacrificed themselves greatly without the ball. They put great pressure on the ball in every moment. We surprised Burnley with our two strikers who created a lot of difficulty for their central defenders,” he said.

“To see Giroud and Morata playing in this way, to see these good combinations and links between them, and then their desire to run and press without the ball, this is the right way to have satisfaction in the future.

Easier to manage Burnley than a top club like Chelsea: Conte

Burnley sit just eight points behind Chelsea with five Premier League games left to go as they battle for a Europa League spot, but Antonio Conte thinks that is more “simple” to be Burnley’s manager than to manage the defending champions.

Sean Dyche is likely to secure a top seven finish for Burnley this season which should be enough to see the club qualify for European competition for the first time in 51 years. And, Conte has been impressed with Dyche’s leadership but he insists that Burnley have been able to play without the pressure to win silverware, unlike his Chelsea side.

“He [Dyche] is doing an important job,” Conte told reporters. “I think that he is doing a great job in this season, but I think if you start the season to fight to avoid the relegation zone, it is more simple. It is more simple. Also if you have a small budget, because you count on a team that you [worked with] in the past.

“You then reach the qualification to play again in the Europa League. It is more difficult when you have to prepare the transfer market to win something, because only one team wins. The others must watch the other team win. I think it is more simple because you have to avoid the last three places at the bottom.

Easier to manage Burnley than a top club like Chelsea: Conte 1

“Then you can stay between 10 teams that can play only for this target. And then, I repeat, if you have a good base and in the previous season you played very well, you can count on these players. You have to fight only to avoid this. It is difficult if you have to play to win because only one team wins and the other don’t win.

“Then you [the journalists] are the first to speak about a failed season, if you don’t win the FA Cup, the league, Carabao Cup, it is a failed season and for this reason it is more difficult to play for this target. In my life, my career I fought to avoid the relegation zone. I didn’t start with Juventus, I started with Arezzo, the bottom.

“It is not important [what I think about Chelsea’s season]. We have to finish our season, our job and then there [are people] who has to judge if the season is a failure or not. This is not my job,” Conte concluded.

Jones, Smalling and Rojo Out! 4-3-3 Manchester United predicted lineup to face Burnley

Jose Mourinho will be relieved that his side managed to beat Anderlecht late in the second leg in extra time at Old Trafford in the Europe league on Thursday. But they do not have any respite as they will be back in action just three days later, when they travel to the Turf Moor in one of the toughest game remaining for the Red Devils in their league campaign. United are currently out of the top-4 and cannot afford to drop any points if they are to qualify for the Champions League but they are sure to find it hard against a gritty Burnley side this weekend. Here is the predicted lineup that Mourinho might field for this tie:

Team News:

The likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are both ruled out for this tie alongside Zlatan Ibrahimović, who picked up an ACL injury in the Europa League tie. Defender Marcos Rojo also picked up a niggle and could be another star missing for this game for United.

Expected lineup (4-3-3):

Defense:

Sergio Romero played the Europa League game so De Gea should be fit and ready to take on Burnley in this tie. Antonio Valencia has been impeccable but has played too many games recently and might be rested. Mourinho hinted at Ashely Young being included in the squad and he could start at right back on the night.

Luke Shaw should keep his place at left-back while Eric Bailly should be the first choice defender for Mourinho in this game. With Jones, Smalling and Rojo all injured, Daly Blind should partner Bailly at the heart of the defence for United.

Jones, Smalling and Rojo Out! 4-3-3 Manchester United predicted lineup to face Burnley 2

Midfield:

Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera sat out of the clash against Anderlecht. He should be up for this game and should start in the midfield. Marouane Fellaini played the full 90 minutes in the Europa League. However, with options at a premium, he should partner Herrera in the midfield for this game.

Attack:

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was involved in the European tie and could be rested for this game and this might see Jesse Lingard take his place on the right flank. Juan Mata is still injured and this might see Mourinho use Paul Pogba in a slightly attacking role in this game.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford changed the game against Anderlecht in extra time and the duo are expected to start, with Rashford leading the attacking line for United.

Here is how they would line up:
